Hundreds of retro trucks will once again head to the British Motor Museum when it hosts the Retro Truck Show on Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 September. Around 300 modern and classic trucks will descend on Gaydon for this popular show, making it one of the largest truck shows in the calendar. The show, now in its 13th year, features some of the best trucks produced between 1972 and 2002, making for a nostalgic and family-friendly show.
Truck enthusiasts can see an array of powerful vehicles from some of the biggest names in trucking, including Volvo, Scania, DAF, Foden and ERF trucks. Trucks from across Europe, notably France, the Netherlands and Belgium, will also be present, giving a continental flavour to this great event!
All trucks built between 1972 to 2002 are welcome to attend, at a cost of just £25. There are no trophies or judging, just the opportunity for truck fans to get together and admire the displays. For truck owners, this annual weekend makes for the perfect trucking holiday and the chance to catch up with friends and like-minded truck enthusiasts. There will also be an Indoor Model Show and trade area with a range of photos, models, and brochures. Camping is available on the Friday and Saturday nights.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum, said, “This show is one of our most popular and a great weekend out for owners, drivers, enthusiasts, and the public. It’s great to see the trucks roll in on the Saturday, making for some wonderful photo opportunities, whereas on the Sunday, you can see them tower over the car parks creating a labyrinth of truck displays to roam and enjoy!”
Visitors can also enjoy exploring the Museum and Collections Centre as entry is included with the Show ticket. Saturday show tickets cost £14.50 for adults, £9 for children and £40 for a family. Sunday is the busier day with more trucks on display. It is also one of the Museum’s Annual Pass Exempt Event Days, meaning that Annual Passes will not be valid on this day. Sunday show tickets cost £18 for adults, £10 for children and £46 for a family. Weekend tickets are also available.
