BMC & Leyland Show supported by Peter James Insurance

Welcome to the BMC & Leyland Show supported by Peter James Insurance, a must-see for any fans of classic British marques. We have a huge variety of vehicles on display covering everything from Morris Mini Minors to Rover 800s. Explore the show and meet like-minded people. This is the show where you can examine every panel and bolt on a Triumph TR7 or say that you like the Austin Allegro and not worry about being judged for it! On top of all that, Museum entry is included with the show ticket giving you access to see over 400 classic British cars in the Museum.

2024 also marks 60 years of the Austin Morris 1800 “Landcrab” and we are hoping for 50+ 1800’s to join us on the day. If you’ve got a Landcrab of your own sitting in the garage, you won’t find a better excuse to show it off to the world!

The Abingdon Works Motorsport Celebration, which was established by the Mini Cooper Register and the Historic Marathon Rally Group, will again have a display of classic cars that represented the BMC Competitions Department across three decades.

In addition, we also welcome the TR Drivers Club and Club Triumph, who hold their annual National Rally here the day before the show.
