Cheshire Concours d’Esprit took place on the Gold Cup Sunday, featuring a collection of extraordinary pre and post war sports-cars, each well-used and with a fascinating story to tell. This was not a typical concours full of polished 'garage queens' rather every one had character, worthy of the description ‘spirited’” with a unique story to tell.
The Market Co provided an artisan market all weekend. Priority is given to locally based traders providing locally produced and sourced products for the area. Complimentary traders are then sourced further afield to ensure the variety of goods on offer is exceptional.
Alongside the beautiful Classic Cars - hundreds of Sports Cars & Supercars from more recent times lined the paddock and infield of Oulton Park. The Gold Cup brought together Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Jaguars, Porsches and much more!
Throughout the weekend the Gold Cup had large military camps and vehicle displays featuring both German and Allied re-enactors taking part! Military displays included an American Civil War camp - new for 2017, Winston Churchill (not the real one), Jeeps, vintage weaponry and a static Messerschmitt WW2 Fighter.
BRISCA Heritage Stock cars took to the rally stage on Sunday and Monday. These machines hark back to the early days of organised racing in North America, and the formation of NASCAR. All the cars are V8 or straight-eight-powered racing machines, built accurately to the 1950s period regulations. Famous American car manufacturers represented include; Ford, Chevrolet, Pontiac and Packard, with both saloons and coupés.
Visitor got up close to the magnificent machinery and were able to meet the drivers moments before they did battle on circuit during the free pit walk.
A real highlight at the 2017 Gold Cup was the live music from decades gone by - the Gold Cup performances included The Belladonna Brigade, Lindy Hop Swing Dancers, Natasha Harper, DJ Dapper Dan and Don Gentile.
Rally passenger rides were on offer in the fully prepared Toyota GT86 cars on Sunday and Monday giving the thrill seekers exactly what they wanted!
