OE 100 - a celebration of Vintage Vauxhalls. June 17th 2023
One hundred years ago in 1923, the Vauxhall 30-98 'OE' model was launched. This was also the first full year of production of the 23-60 and the 14-40 models, and the year in which Vauxhall Motors Ltd made a modest profit after 2 years of losses.......
2023 is also 120 years since the first Vauxhall car, a 5hp single cylinder 'light car', was produced at the Vauxhall Ironworks in London.
But who needs an excuse? If you own an Edwardian or Vintage Vauxhall, you would be welcome to join this proposed event. An informal, à la carte style event on June 17th 2023 - or stay the weekend if you wish.
The organisation will be 'light touch', come and go as you please, individually or in groups. The proposed event will be based at Stonehurst Farm Park, Mountsorrel in Leicestershire. (see map). If you're interested to join in, just complete the form below (by end February please); we will gauge the interest and plan accordingly.
The facilities here include: a motor museum, farm shop, tea room, (including breakfast) camping field (no facilities except loos) and ample space to park our cars. There's plenty for young families to do too.
Or, if you are celebrating a special occasion, you could book (lunch or dinner) Leicestershire's only Michelin starred restaurant, which is on site.
A group Hog Roast or BBQ will be available on Saturday evening, and the road runs will include road books. The VSCC Cadwell Park race meeting is on Sunday 18th, for those who wish to move on afterwards.
The (modest) costs will be determined once we have an idea of numbers, and will obviously depend on what you choose to do.
