THE Cumbria Classic and Motorsport Show has been held since 1989 with the Rose & Thistle Classic Tour taking place on the Saturday each year and the Cumbria Classic and Motorsport Show on the Sunday.

This event, now in its 33rd year, COVID-19 delayed one year, is the most prestigious of its kind in the Cumbria/North Lakes region.

The Cumbria Classic Car Show is held at the Dalemain Estate in Penrith. It attracts around 800 cars to a day packed full of entertainment.

We look back at 2005: this was the 17th year of running and it was a record breaker at the time for the event as attendance and the number of exhibits grew.

The Car of the Show, as voted for by the prizewinners, was the 1965 Alvis convertible of John Wilson while the best motorbike was the Moto Guzzi of Pops Hinde.
