If you fancy a grand day out for the whole family, then look no further. We have ample free parking and a very modest entry fee of £5.00 per person with children under 14 free if accompanying an adult. Sorry no concessions. The event and the entertainment starts at approximately 10:00am but the gates open well in advance so it pays to arrive early to miss the queues.
The Ripon Classic Car Gathering is held annually at Ripon Racecourse, Boroughbridge Road, Ripon HG4 1UG. See our Interactive Map. Directions are simple.
From the East: leave the A1 at Junction 48 Boroughbridge and follow the Ripon signs bringing you to the B6265. The Racecourse is the first thing you see as you approach the outskirts of Ripon (approximately 5 miles from the A1). Use the first Race Course entrance to the left.
From the West/Ripon: Use the main Racecourse Entrance on your right then once on the Racecourse turn left into the car park.
Every year, we have hundreds of vehicles of all types on display at our show and that number is growing. Our event quite rightly gains in popularity annually and has become firmly estalished on the calendar as a result with many local charities benefitting from our success. We therefore aim to make it as easy as possible for you to display your vehicle in our Show. The cut-off date of manufacture for exhibiting vehicles is December 1994.
We are now accepting applcations from exhibitors in all the classes shown below. There are awards for each class and the entry form shows how you can register your vehicle for judging. In most cases, you will need to confirm that the entered vehicle is covered by Third Party Insurance. The closing date for applications is Sunday 14th July 2019. Please note that Club Stands are already sold out for 2019.
You can download your entry form by following the links provided. Upon receipt of your entry form, Ripon Old Cars will issue you with and entry pass. Only vehicles displaying Ripon Old Cars-issued passes will be allowed to exhibit.
You can also exhibit at our Gathering as a late entry on the day. You will however not be eligible for judging in any of our classes. Please see F.A.Q.
We have trade stand and Autojumble pitches available on the day. Each pitch is five metres square and you will be allowed to bring your vehicle on the pitch. We supply nothing other than the pitch so you will have to bring all your own weather protection, tables, displays etc. Please leave the pitch clean and tidy at the end of the show.
We do not allow traders to sell food or drink nor do we allow traders to run raffles or tombolas. Applications can be made by following the link.
Please note. All our entry and booking forms are in PDF format so you will need a compatible reader to access. Get Adobe Reader here.
