We’ve been attending Retro Rides Gathering for years, which is known for its hill climb motorsport action at Prescott Hill, which then moved to Shelsley Walsh. Well, this year the guys at Retro Rides had something else in store for us… In addition to the usual Gathering, they’ve introduced a sister show, the Retro Rides Weekender, held at no other than the legendary Goodwood Motor Circuit. We are huge fans of Goodwood, it’d be hard for any petrolhead not to be! Now, imagine the historical paddocks and grounds taken over by all sorts of weird and wacky classic cars. Retro Rides is where you go to see the biggest mixed bag of old cars, ever. Add the surroundings of Goodwood, and you’re onto a winner – this included Pre-selected paddock displays, point-to-point sprint track action, ‘guest’ vehicles, clubs, retro parking, food, and traders (including ourselves!). Just like the Gathering, Retro Rides Weekender did well to attract that unique blend of anything retro. We attended on the Saturday with our Pop-Up Store and took some photos of our highlights, enjoy…

Although we had to leave and run off to Early Edition, Sunday (day two) saw the historic Goodwood track taken over by club stands and cars parked all over it, we can only imagine that it must’ve been quite a sight! So, if you like what you see and missed the Weekender, the usual Retro Rides Gathering is back this year also, at Shelsley Walsh in Worcestershire on Sunday 19th August for more retro goodness. We highly recommend that you check it out. Visit for more info.
