Preview: Bromley Pageant, 9 June

Published 30 April 2013

There's going to be an eclectic mix of cars and clubs at this year's Bromley Pageant on 9 June in Kent - one of the UK's largest classic car gatherings.

Some great clubs have already confirmed their attendance at this year's event. Most notable are the Jaguar XK8/XKR Enthusiasts’ Club, who will be showing a range of these modern-era high-performance Jaguar models. There’s high-speed motoring from the Jensen Owners’ Club, which offers a great reminder of these prestigious grand touring Aston Martin rivals.Representing sports cars from across the Channel the Renault Alpine Owners’ Club has a selection of these highly acclaimed French motors, and for the truly rare French classic, you’d better head along to the Simca Club’s display.

But if your eyes are only on Japanese cars, you’re also in for a treat. Look out for the Toyota MR2 Drivers’ Club, MR2 (MkI) Club, MX5 Owners’ Club, Suzuki SC100 Enthusiasts’ Club and the Mitsubishi Lancer Register. British classics aren’t missing out either. Ford is represented by nearly a dozen clubs, including the Anglia 105E Owners’ club, Cortina Owners’ Club Mk 1-5 and, moving more up-to-date, the Mondeo Owners’ Club.

The Rover SD1 Club will have a fine array of these groundbreaking 1970s and ’80s hatchback models while Land Rovers, Minis and Wolseleys also take pride of place. Vauxhalls, Triumphs and MGs will also remind visitors of family and performance motoring from the time when petrol prices hadn’t yet reached £1 a gallon. Bringing a welcome street and strip flavour to the Pageant is the Dutch House Street and Strip Club, otherwise known as the DHSS Car Club, one of the country’s longest-established custom car and hot rod clubs.

And for something completely different the Battery vehicle Society shows just how well established battery-powered cars are. The Society was founded 40 years ago and continues to promote all types of electric vehicles. So whatever your choice of classic cars, this year’s Peter James Insurance Bromley Pageant of Motoring will have something for you.

Bromley pageant 2013 was very disappointing this year. Queued for about 30 minutes to buy a ticket which was very expensive to look at a load of cars in a field, I do not think that there was not 3000 cars at the show,I did not see any steam engines and only a hand full of small trucks.I hope they donate a lot of the taking to charity, as when I left I really felt ripped off.
