Classic & Sports Show, Bicester 23-24 June 2018
Dear DeLorean Club members,

This year’s Classic & Sports Car Show, in association with Flywheel, is being held at the fascinating Bicester Heritage site in Oxfordshire over the weekend of 23-24 June 2018, and will include a Concours event for selected classic cars as an added attraction to the event’s intoxicating mix of historic motorsport, motoring, aviation and military vehicle attractions, with spectacular displays and live-action demonstrations throughout the Show weekend.

One of the six Concours classes for this inaugural Classic & Sport Car event will be dedicated to Movie Star Cars, including iconic vehicles from the silver screen, which naturally makes a 'Back to the Future' style DeLorean DMC12 a must for this Concours classI am therefore contacting you to see if you or any of your fellow Club/Register members might have a nice and appropriately modified original example of the model that you, he, she or they may be interested in entering as a potential Concours participant in this static Movie Cars class.
