Club Stand Photos

Below are a series of albums with pictures from club stands from the last few years, some of the highlights are :-

Bingley Hall 2014 Display - we are proud to say we helped the RNLI raise £240 in funds with our £1 a go playstation mini driving game.

Pictures from the Pride of Longbridge 2014 Club Display & Outside the Longbridge Factory after the show! Gaydon's Last of the Line '500' was adjacent to our stand as well, adding another special Cooper Sport 500 to the display. It had been taxed and was driven to the show!

2013 Gaydon BMC & Leyland Show 500 Register & 2000 Register display with 4 of the original 8 'LOE' press cars together again and Uttoxeter 2013 Club Stand with 'Unregistered Sport 500'

We have won two second place and two third place 'best club stand' awards.
