Classic car and bike show set to roar despite signs disappearing
The Doncaster Classic Car and Bike Show will be held at the Eco Power Stadium on July 9 and will showcase a huge range of vintage motors, attracting hundreds of enthusiasts.
In previous years the event has taken place at the Doncaster School for the Deaf.
But a banner announcing the show’s new location is missing – and the organizers are keen to ensure no one misses out on the fun.
Spokesman Phillip Knight said: ‘We put up a show banner on Stadium Way which we had permission from Doncaster Council for but unfortunately someone removed it which is a bit of a blow hard as it was a great way to publicize our community event.
“We’re a bit bummed as to why anyone would do this. It wasn’t cheap to order and given that the show is for charity it’s really troubling. We double checked with the teams DMBC and they did not delete.”
But the disappearance did not deter the organizers from preparing for a spectacular spectacle.
Mr Knight added: “This is one of the biggest events of its kind in the north of England.
“We usually have around 600 vehicles on display and 5,000 visitors during the day.
“There will be a huge range of vehicles on display, stalls to browse, food and drink to consume and entertainment for the children. A real family day out with something for everyone.”
Ample free public parking is available.
The event is run by the Rotary Club of Doncaster St George’s and any funds raised after expenses are distributed through its Charitable Trust to local charities and groups and other charitable activities.
Mr Knight added: ‘So not only will people have a great day, but they’ll help raise money for worthy causes.’
This year’s show will start at 10 a.m. and will showcase a wide range of makes and models of cars and motorcycles from different eras.
There will also be kiddie rides, medieval knights, face painting, ‘Donny Stigalike’, a marching band, the Doncaster Restraint Museum and an emergency services exhibit.
The cost is £6 or £5 in advance.
