Motoring fans in Lincoln are looking forward to a brand new event on the city’s summer calendar, which promises a great day out for all the family.
Independent garage owners have teamed-up with Lincoln BIG to stage the
first-ever Lincolnshire Motor Show on the city’s Brayford Waterfront on Sunday. August 16.
Lincoln Volkswagen Specialists Managing Director Andy Bower said: “Lots of
independent garages support a wide range of different car marques. Their owners, and the mechanics they employ, are very knowledgeable about various models.
“I got in touch with Lincoln BIG because we thought it would be a great idea if
we got together and introduced ourselves to a wider group of people, in a setting where they could see the types of cars we work on and chat to us.
“We wanted them to be confident of receiving impartial advice, without being under any pressure to buy a vehicle.”
As well as having the chance to talk to experts in dealing with a range of different
makes of vehicle, from Volkswagen to Vauxhall, Citroen, BMW and Mercedes,
visitors to the Brayford Waterfront will also be able to admire customised and highly
tuned vehicles in the Performance Cars section.
Visitors can look out for vehicles such as REVO Performance with cars from the VAG world and enjoy supercars, such as an Ariel Atom and Ferraris.
Local car clubs, including Lincoln RS Owners Club, Lincs Driver Car Club, LN Custom and Louth Classic Car Club, will also be showcasing their vehicles and there
will be a truck tractor unit, camper vans and even a vintage tractor towed by a
Land Rover and trailer.
The event runs from 10am through to 5pm and it will also feature music from live bands. Visitors may also catch a glimpse of the county’s own ‘Elvis’.
Money raised by the event is going to support The Lincoln Gymnastic Club, who will be holding a tombola.
There will also be an award up for grabs for the Car of Show.
Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Manager Michael Armstrong said: “The Brayford
Waterfront has become increasingly well-known for our motoring events. We are
delighted to be adding another to a range which already includes our camper van, mini and motorcycling days.
“We hope families will enjoy our latest event and the refreshments offered by the many restaurants in this part of the city. People can also pop into town and do a
spot of shopping and even take a look at our Lincoln Charter Barons Trail.”
