Win tickets to classic car show weekend

Posted onPosted on 12th Jun

Fifty years of the Ford Capri will be celebrated at the 19th Wonderland Classic and Sports Car Festival.

The annual event will take place at Ferry Farm, Hoveringham, on 29th and 30th June — and tickets to the show are the prize in an easy-to-enter News Journal competition.

A Capri 50 Years timeline is planned, starting from 1969 and taking visitors through the MK1, MKII and MKIII years to 1986, when production ended —­ and then onwards to 2019 with Capri restorations, modifications and rebuilds.

The RS34100, Perana, JPS, Broadspeed, Tickford, Zakspeed and Brooklands 280 are just a few of the Capris planned for the display.

The Saturday of the show will start earlier than previous years, at noon, with a Car of the Night Trophy awarded at 8pm.

There will be live music during the evening from local band Beggars Belief.

The Sunday, known as Show ‘n’ Shine Day, features judging for vehicles from around the world manufactured or registered before 31st December 2010, including British classics, American ‘muscle’ cars and European classic and sports car legends.

Wonderland 2019 will feature many models across the Ford range, custom cars, Rods and vehicles of special interest, such as kit cars, military and commercial vehicles.
