Following the huge success of last year’s Classic Cars Gathering, Arundel Castle will again provide the stunning backdrop for this collection of fine classic cars and super cars.

On Sunday July 10, classic car enthusiasts will have the unique opportunity to roll back the years and view a wide selection of iconic vehicles, from the stately grandeur of Alvis, Bentley and Wolseley, to majestic British sports cars including Aston Martin, Jaguar and MG and mesmerising super cars from Ferrari and Porsche.

The cars on display will be from local clubs and individual entries.

Once again, super car fans will have the rare opportunity to experience an exhilarating ride in a super car, provided by The Sporting Bears, Southern Region, whilst raising money for the event’s chosen charity – The Lavinia Norfolk Centre at Angmering School.

The charity provides opportunities for disabled children to participate in national and international sporting events.

Castle Manager Bryan McDonald commented: “I’m excited that these fine cars will be on display in the grounds of Arundel Castle this summer.

“The Classic Cars Gathering is a must for all fans of classic cars and super cars.

“I’m delighted that so many local car clubs and individuals will be appearing at the Castle grounds and I’m sure lots of our visitors will relish the chance to take a ride in a super car, whilst raising money for such a good cause.”

Steeped in 1,000 years of history, Arundel Castle offers a full day out with guided and free-flow tours of the finely preserved castle rooms including the Baron’s Hall, 14th Century Catholic Fitzalan Chapel and Victorian bedrooms alongside opportunities to ascend the Norman Motte and Keep and enjoy The Collector Earl’s Garden.

The Castle is open Tuesdays to Sundays inclusive, May Bank Holiday Mondays & August Mondays until Sunday 30 October 2016.

Tickets are priced from £9.
