‘An amazing day, helped by fantastic weather,’ was the verdict of event manager Richard Young, reviewing this year’s 25th anniversary Classics on the Common.
As ever, the show brought spectators in their thousands on to Harpenden Common to stroll among the dazzling display of classic cars, motorcycles and scooters.
Since taking over the running of the event 11 years ago Rotary in Harpenden has developed it into Britain’s biggest mid-week classic car show. It has also become a major community event for Harpenden and a significant charity fundraiser.
The show raised £37,500, another record amount for distribution to
charities local, children's, national and international. The main
beneficiaries were Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, Keech Hospice Care,
Macmillan Cancer Support and ShelterBox Trust.
