The East of England Arena and Events Centre (EEAEC) has been chosen as the venue for a new motor show, the International Sports Car and Classic Car Show, taking place on 24-26 May 2019.
The show will occupy all the indoor event space available, and much of the 250 acres of outdoor event space. Expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors, it will feature hundreds of sports and classic car clubs exhibiting rare and classic vehicles, 1200+ trade stands selling accessories and parts in the main hall and outside, guests from the world of motorsport, a live car auction and a programme of evening entertainments with live bands and acts.
The show has been organised and conceived by Chris Campbell of Layzeedog Media & Publishing, who commented: “Quite simply, East of England Arena and Events Centre has everything we need and want for a family oriented classic and sports car festival.
“Highlights of the show will include a Vintage Festival and a Classics in the Park concert on the Sunday evening with a first-class fireworks display planned afterwards.”
Dean Rees, EEAEC’s business development manager added: “This new show will be a great sports and classic car show for all-comers, and promises to deliver not just for the petrol-heads but their families too. We’re well-equipped and accustomed to hosting shows of this scale and scope, and will be using our festival and motorsport experience and expertise to ensure it’s a successful and popular event.”
