A unique thing about the HCCS is that we love people to enjoy their classics and like nothing better than seeing them on the road, so we organise a road tour on the morning of the show, giving you an opportunity to use your car and see some of our beautiful local area.
This tour takes place on the morning of Sunday 26 May, meeting on Lion Green first thing for breakfast and a chance to meet your fellow entrants. The tour will leave for a drive of around fifty miles through the beautiful local countryside, with a refreshment stop on route.
The tour is designed to finish back on the Green in time for the afternoon show where you will park up with the show entries and have the opportunity to take part in our 'Best Dressed Car & Crew' and 'People's Choice' competitions - see the cars page for details.
Open to all pre-1979 type vehicles the tour costs £20 for car and driver plus £6 per additional adult passenger, which includes the route, breakfast roll and hot drink, refreshment stop, tour plate and window sticker, a lucky programme and charity donation. Children under 14 can go on the tour for free but if they require a breakfast roll there is a cost of £3 per child.
The 2019 Tour is currently fully booked. Please contact us to go on the waiting list and we will let you know if any places become available. Currently we still have some availability to reserve a space for your car at the show, please see the SHOW CARS page for a booking form.
See how a couple of our previous entrants enjoyed the tour...
In 2017 Clare vlogged about her day with the family in their Morris Minor Traveller and in 2015, tour entrant Aaron, in his Triumph Spitfire 1500, was navigated by his friend Joshua, who shot this great Vlog of the tour to Lasham Glider Club and back. Thanks Clare and Joshua for letting us use their films.
Our tour route uses ‘tulips’ these were first used on Dutch rallies in the 1950’s. These are easy to follow pictorial representations of the road layout
You will approach a junction from the ‘ball’ and leave in the direction of the ‘arrow’. On the left side of the sheet there are two distances, the intermediate distance from the last instruction and a total distance from the start, use these as a guide, as odometers, especially in old cars can read differently. Please note that the kilometer figures have been done mathematically and are there as
a guide and may not be accurate. If you have a trip meter zero it at the start.
Not all junctions on the route are indicated, if the intermediate distance is 3.4 you ignore all other junctions on the road you are on until you have travelled for 3.4 miles and then follow the next
instruction. It is useful to tick off each ‘tulip’ as you go past to help to keep your place on the route. On the right hand side of the tulips we have indicated signposts, added instructions and various
landmarks such as pubs and villages to help you.
Don’t panic they are very easy to follow and once you’ve done the first few you’ll pick it up quickly. If you are on your own it will be more difficult so we suggest you join up with another entrant that
has a navigator.
Second exit at the roundabout
T-junction turn left then immediate right opposite pub
1 You have travelled 1.5 miles from the previous instruction, 2.5 miles from the start. Tulip shows - straight on past the hotel on your right.
2 Travel another 0.8 miles (total from start 3.3) on a curve in the road take a right turn, signposted to Lurgashall Winery. Take care.
3 Travel another 0.6 miles (total 3.9). Keep left on the same road, ignoring a turning on the right.
