HSF Charity partner for the Warren Classic & Supercar Show — Sunday 24th September 2017.
HSF have been named official charity partner for the forthcoming Warren Classic & Supercar Show. The event will be taking place on Sunday 24 September at The Warren Golf and Country Club, Essex.
The Warren Classic provides visitors the opportunity to see some of the finest classic and contemporary supercars in the world, all gathered together at Essex’s most prestigious classic and supercar event. The highlight of the show is The Warren Classic Concours d’Elegance — one hundred and twenty cars from around have been carefully selected by the organising committee to take part in the Concours. The event provides a unique opportunity to get up close to some of the finest examples of motorcars in the world and talk to the owners. The judges, hand-picked for their specialist knowledge of veteran, vintage and classic cars, will judge the cars based on presentation, originality and of course, elegance. The winners of each category will participate in a procession into the main arena, where the overall winner of the Warren Concours d’Elegance will be selected.
In addition to the Concours, the classic car ‘drive in’ enables car clubs and classic cars owners to display their pride and joy.
This year’s event will also feature a special tribute to honour John Surtees CBE. A collection of his iconic vehicles will play an integral part of the event including:
• The TS14: The first car to be introduced to the new safety regulations in 1972 and was driven by Mike Hailwood and Carlos Pace setting lap records in the German and Austrian Grand Prix. Mike Hailwood took 2nd place at the Italian Grand Prix. The team finished 5th in the World Championship (one place behind Ferrari).
• TS15 — Formula 2 car designed and built by the Surtees team which Carlos Pace car drove to victory in the prestigious Interlagos race in Brazil
• The 1960 MV Agusta four-cylinder GP motorcycle — John Surtees won seven motorcycle championships riding for MV Agusta and 6 Isle of Man TT’s
• The 1949 500cc Vincent Grey Flash: The motorcycle on which John Surtees won his first ever race and considered it the most important race of his life. John Surtees built the Vincent Grey Flash motorcycle in 1979 using a large number of parts from the original machine that he built in 1950 whilst working as an apprentice at the Vincent Company. It was the first of many wins before he transferred to a Norton to compete in International events
