Ripon roaring in August

Yorkshire’s picturesque Ripon Racecourse will play host to in excess of 500 historic vehicles over August Bank Holiday, and while many of them will be of the four-wheeled variety, there’s set to be a good turnout of powered two-wheelers as well.

Aside from the private vehicles on display there’ll be plenty of trade stands too, with tools, models, book and gift stands in abundance, while there’ll also be an autojumble for those who’re looking for a shopping experience with an oilier, more hands-on approach.

There’ll be rows of clubs stands, and an arena with classic vehicle displays, all just easily accessible five miles from the A1M.


Gates open at 10am on Sunday, August 25, with the show running until 4pm, while admission is £7 for adults and £2.50 for children.

Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome and there is free and ample parking. For more details, or to exhibit your classic vehicle, see
