Organisers aim for 'Biggest Pride of the Paddock ever' as entries open for 20th Reis Race Retro
The organisers of Reis Race Retro, the historic motorsport season opener, are planning for the biggest Pride of the Paddock competition ever as it celebrates the 20th show in 2024

Held at Warwickshire’s Stoneleigh Park from 23-25 February, the Reis Pride of the Paddock competition invites private owners to showcase their competition cars from all motorsport disciplines.

Show visitors will be invited to vote for their favourite vehicle of the 20 finalists planned, which is twelve more than competed in the 2023 event. 

Show Director Lee Masters said: “After a great response from owners in 2023, we are aiming to make the Pride of the Paddock competition the focal point of the newly refurbished Hall 3. We’re increasing the number of finalists, with one for every Reis Race Retro show we have opened since its launch in 2003.”

All cars must have competed in a motorsport event since their manufacture and be made or emulate a vehicle dated pre-2000. All owners featured in the competition will receive two tickets for each of the show days, free parking throughout and a commemorative certificate.

Alongside winner’s trophies for our top three vehicles, the overall winner will receive 15% off their motor insurance renewal premium with Reis, with the runner-up receiving a 10% discount on their insurance renewal premium and the third-placed entry receiving a 5% discount on their premium (T&Cs apply).

To enter, download the entry form at and return with two pictures of the car by 25 January 2024 at the latest.

Mary Singleton, Senior Operations Manager at Reis Motorsport Insurance, said: " It's great to once again be supporting the Pride of the Paddock and giving owners the opportunity to showcase an increased number of classic competition cars. These cars always inspire nostalgia and we look forward to hearing the stories and legacies that define them.”

Previous winners include Richard Barber’s modified 1966 Anglia 105E Deluxe, Paul Boscott’s 1967 Lotus Elan Plus 2, Ian Medcalf’s Fiat 500 Special Saloon, Jim Angliss' modified 1967 Ford Anglia 105E, and Ian Thompson's replica of the Peugeot 205 T16 rally car.

Tickets are now on sale for the show, held from February 23-25 2024, along with the latest updates and ticket information at
