Classic cars to take centre stage at this year's Kenilworth Show in Stoneleigh

CLASSIC cars such as this Ford Mustang (pictured) will be vying for the inaugural Peter Yardley Memorial Trophy at this year’s Kenilworth Show at Stoneleigh.

Show organisers, Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS), felt it was fitting to name the new trophy in memory of Peter who passed away last year, and was a regular classic cars exhibitor and show supporte.

Classic cars have always been a feature of the agricultural show, to be staged on the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park on Saturday June 10.

Organisers expect around 50 cars to enter the competition.

Organiser Richard Clarke said: “Peter was a lovely guy and always so supportive of everything we do at the show.

“Come rain or shine it didn’t matter, Peter would come down and support us – it is an honour that we have been able to name the trophy after him.”

“We get new cars in every year, so we’re really excited about what this year’s competition will bring.

“I hope that everyone comes over and visits the stand because we really do have some fantastic cars on show this year.”

The cars will do a short tour of the Grand Ring giving visitors the chance to see the classic vehicles in action.
