Pride of the Paddock

The Pride of the Paddock competition returns to Race Retro, powered by Motor Sport with a fantastic line up of some of the most cherished motors in the country.

Presenting an outstanding collection of privately owned racing and rally cars, their beloved owners will be joining us at the show in a bid to be crowned the 2019 winner! 

Any car that has competed in a race or rally at any level was eligible to enter along with high spec replicas of racing and rally cars from historic motorsport, and this year, every discipline of motorsport is covered in the line up. The finalists have been hand-picked for their stunning exteriors, and sentimental stories - all of which have a great history.

Visitors will be invited to vote for their favourite car over the duration of the show, and the two cars with the most visitor votes will be awarded first or second place on Sunday 24 February. The winning car will be invited back to next year's event along with the possibility of displaying their pride and joy at Race Retro's sister events; Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery and The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery.

Our first five finalists have now been releaved, for more information on each, read the full 'First Five' article here.
