GREAT cars from across motorsport history will gather at Shelsley Walsh as the Classic Nostalgia meeting returns on July 17 and 18.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the popular annual event, which features a spectacular blend of competitive action on the famous hill climb, historic-car demonstrations, classic-car displays, trade stands and vintage-themed entertainment.

Twenty years since Richard Burns dramatically won the World Rally Championship in a final-round showdown, the late Englishman will be honoured with a selection of his cars – including the Subaru Impreza in which he won the 2000 Safari Rally.

Ralli22 will also be returning to Shelsley Walsh. Always a crowd favourite, the 40-strong rally class features an awesome selection of Group A, Group B and WRC machinery.

They will include a number of rarely seen cars, such as an ex-Tony Pond Metro 6R4, ex-Colin McRae Ford Focus WRC, ex-Stig Blomqvist Saab, and an ex-Sébastien Loeb Citroen C4 WRC.

Few motorsport series are as fondly remembered as Formula 5000, and historic racer Matthew Wurr will be demonstrating a thunderous McLaren M10B during the weekend.

Powered by a 5-litre Chevrolet V8 engine, this car carried Peter Gethin to the 1970 British F5000 Championship.

It was then used in speed events throughout the 1970s, and twice won the British Sprint Championship.

There will more V8-powered excitement thanks to the presence of the ex-Pedro Rodriguez BRM P154 Can-Am car.

The Mexican ace drove chassis number two in three rounds of the 1970 Can-Am Challenge Cup – a series renowned for its ‘no holds barred’ action.

The McLaren and BRM will be joined at Shelsley Walsh by the 1911 Fiat S76 Land Speed Record contender 'Beast of Turin'.

Classic Nostalgia is the perfect event at which to hold an annual car club gathering in the most picturesque setting.

All registered clubs can reserve their own designated display area in the heart of the event.

An award will be given to the best presented club stand.

In addition, there will be a fashion competition for the best and most authentic vintage outfit, and trade stands selling everything from clothing and accessories to motoring books, art, photography and memorabilia.

It’s been a tough year for many small businesses, so as a way to help the recovery process, Shelsley has reduced trade stand pitches by nearly 50%.
