Retro Classic Tour 2023

Stoneleigh Park



26th February 2023

Setting off from the renowned Race Retro event at Stoneleigh Park, The Retro Classic Tour winds its way on a 120 mile route through the beautiful West Midlands countryside, enjoying views from the undulating hills of Warwickshire to the incredible engineering masterpiece that is the Harbury Windmill, a 17th Century, Grade 1 Listed Building.

The route will also cross some incredibly important points of British History, including the site of the Battle of Edgehill, one of the first Battles of the English Civil War, in 1642. After passing by this historical area, the route descends into the picturesque village of Kineton, a traditional English village.

As we leave Kineton keep an eye out for the famous Hook Norton Victorian Brewery, still brewing ales and beers in the same traditional way since the early Victorian Era, and a great tour for anyone who may want to visit on a weekend where you’re not enjoying some of the best roads that we can offer. We now work our way towards our lunch at the Vale Golf Club.

The second half of the tour sees us wend our way towards Harvington, a beautiful little village nestled in the rolling hills of Worcestershire. A little further into the afternoon you will cross the River Avon, using a narrow bridge, as you cross this we use a road even older than some of the historical sights we passed this morning, Ryknield Street, which has been traversed by everything from chariots to supercars, and was initially laid by the Romans on their conquest of England.

Before you know it, you’ll drive through the gates back into Stoneleigh Park returning to the show where you will be welcomed onto the HERO-ERA Stand for a tea or coffee.
