Countdown to the 2019 Doncaster Classic Car & Bike Show
The Doncaster Classic Car & Bike Show is one of the premier classic car & bike events throughout the region and also one of the largest. Last year we had over 800 vehicles on display covering all eras of motoring and encompassing cars, bikes, commercial vehicles, off road vehicles, military vehicles, modified cars, sports cars and much much more. We had so many exhibits last year that we have secured even more space for this year’s show. Don’t forget to book though because demand is always high and it’s definitely an event you don’t want your pride and joy to miss. If you are planning to visit the show then there is ample parking just across from the showground on the Park & Ride car park.
Now in its 12th year the show is held at the Doncaster Deaf Trust School opposite the racecourse and organised in conjunction with the Doncaster St Georges Rotary club and the Traditional Car Club of Doncaster. All profits from the show are distributed by the Rotary club to local good causes. In the past this has included charities, Scout groups, schools, libraries, support groups to name but a few – so not only is it a good day out but a chance for us all to support the local community, whilst enjoying these lovingly kept vehicles and taking a trip down motoring memory lane.
In addition to the displays of vehicles there will be a central arena with a stage. The stage will play host to a number of activities throughout the day including THE PRETEND BEATLES band and THE MEMPHIS CRUISERS band. For all the latest information on the entertainment available on the day keep a lookout on the show’s very own facebook page and twitter feed (Links at the top of this page).

If you are coming to the show as a car club and have pre-booked your own club stand, then you too can join in the acknowledgement of people’s achievements. Each pre-booked club will receive a trophy from the Show organisers for your club to decide who has the “Best in Club” vehicle on the day.
“May the Force be with you!” – Keep your eyes peeled throughout the day and don’t let anyone tell you “these are not the classic cars you are looking for” because the show will be host to the 99th Garrison, a group of Star Wars reenactors who will join in the fun throughout the day on the showfield.
