Stoneleigh Park in Coventry plays host to Race Retro from 21st to 23rd February. This year sees a new sponsor of Europe’s #1 historic motorsport show with Reis Motorsport Insurance, giving the show a catchy new name, Reis Race Retro!

More than 24,000 visitors are expected at the show and they won’t be disappointed. There’s something for every motorsport fan here, with exhibits and displays covering formula and circuit racing, touring cars, rallying, GT cars and much more.

There’s so much to get excited about

There’s so much going on, it would be impossible to tell you about all of it, so while some of it will be a surprise when you visit, we can tell you that there will be two thrilling live rally stages, one on Saturday and the other on the Sunday. Hitting the stage will be some top names from the world of motorsport. The headliners this year are World Rally Champion Didier Auriol and European Rally Champion Chris Ingram. The British Historic Kart Racing Club will be heading to the track to show you their skills too. Bring along your own retro classic and not only can you join in the Retro Classic Tour, a 100 miles tour around the scenic roads towards Oxford, but you may even win the highly coveted Reis Pride of the Paddock prize!

See cars with an amazing history

Head to the Hall of Fame to get up close to some amazing vehicles with an awe-inspiring heritage. Highlights include Jody Scheckter’s 5 litre Vasak Polak Porsche 917/10, a D-Type Jaguar driven by the late Mike Hawthorn in the 1955 Le Mans, and a Williams FW11 driven my Nelson Piquet.

Always wanted to drive a particular classic? Well now you can, with a wide range of classic cars available for you to have a go! Hooked on classics? Then head to the Silverstone Auctions where you have the opportunity to bid for a classic car of your own.
