Classic car owners will be vying for new trophy at Kenilworth Show

Leamington Editorial 1st May, 2017   0

CLASSIC car owners will be vying for the inaugural Peter Yardley Memorial Trophy at this year’s Kenilworth Show.

Show organisers, Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS), felt it was fitting to name the new trophy in memory of Peter who passed away in 2016 and was a regular classic cars exhibitor and supporter of the show.

Classic cars have always been a feature of the agricultural show with specialist owners clubs exhibiting at the event which will be held on the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park on Saturday June 10.

Organisers expect around 50 cars to enter the competition and the winner will then be chosen by an independent judge from KADAS.

Organiser Richard Clarke said: “Peter was a lovely guy and always so supportive of everything we do at the show.

“Come rain or shine it didn’t matter, Peter would come down and support us – it is an honour that we have been able to name the trophy after him.

“We get new cars in every year, so we’re really excited about what this year’s competition will bring. It adds something different to the whole show and gives the car owners a cracking day out too.

“I hope that everyone comes over and visits the stand because we really do have some fantastic cars on show this year.”

The cars will be on show throughout the event and will also do a short tour of the Grand Ring giving visitors the chance to see the classic vehicles in action.
