The Spanish Classic Scene


DAVID HUDSON,  president of Club Torrevieja Clasicos Red, produces a very useful club bulletin every month and with it a run down of the various classic car events that might be interesting to local aficionados.

David said that there should soon be a Concentration of Classics and Specialists vehicles in Catral. This annual event in the Industrial Estate is one of the biggest in this region and is free and very informal. As yet no date has be announced but look out for details.

This time next month, Antic Auto, the region’s largest Feria of Claassic Cars and Bikes takes place at the IFA Exhibition Centre, on April 22nd and 23rd, 2017. The International Automobile, Motorcycle and Classic and Antique Show is an opportunity to see hundreds of vehicles displayed by private individuals and local clubs and associations, private collections of models and toys, spare parts and collectibles in the area enabled for this purpose, a display area featuring emblematic vehicles of classic models, coming from private collections of all Spain. The fair is open on Saturday from 10:00am to 8:30pm and Sunday from 10:00am to 7:00pm.

Moving south, the Feria de Coches Antiguos of the Region of Murcia is an annual event held over three days in sunny May in the Antigue Artilery Barracks just off the Cartagena bypass and is totally free. The show and location makes it pleasant to walk around and has a large supply of vehicles for sale and spare parts businesses from all over Spain as well as classic displays of cars, motorcycles and lorries. Other local events to look out for are the Annual Concentration in Guardamar, the Encuentro of Classic Motorcycles in Redovan organised by La Carbonilla Moto Club. Passion for Classics in Rafal, Orihuela in November.
