SHETLAND’S motoring enthusiasts are showing their colours by bringing clubs from Europe to this year’s Shetland Classic Motor Show for the first time, just weeks ahead of June’s in/out EU referendum.
Organisers say the 17th biannual event to be held at Lerwick’s Clickimin Leisure Complex on 4 and 5 June will be the biggest ever, having seen the highest level of interest and bookings in its long history.
As well as clubs from across the UK, the Moto Mundo Club from Denmark are coming with a number of rare Nimbus motorcycles.
The Motor Sport Club of Sernatingen in Germany will also bring some of their large selection of vehicles.
More than 300 motorcars and motorcycles will be on show alongside commercial vehicles, bicycles, tractors and stationary engines from the last 100 years.
Organiser Maurice Mullay said this year’s haul of exhibits would be “truly impressive”.
“The diversity and range of outstanding vehicles is quite amazing,” he exclaimed.
“This is now a major show in the Shetland and Scottish calendar of events: put the dates in your diary now.”
Anyone interested in displaying classic vehicles or equipment who has yet to receive an invitation can contact Graham Johnston on 07876 164777.
