ALL roads lead to Culzean Castle in South Ayrshire, Scotland this coming Bank Holiday weekend 23-24 August, with the first annual international heritage motoring festival the Culzean Autoclassica attracting crowds of participants and spectators.

With 50 automobile clubs being represented at the event, around 400 vehicles and exhibitors will be on show on Saturday, building up to 700 for the main event on Sunday.

Over one hundred years of motoring heritage will be on display throughout the weekend, with entrants travelling from all corners of the UK, bringing vehicles ranging from an 1899 De Dion Bouton through to the latest high performance and super cars from the likes of Ferrari, Aston Martin and Jaguar.

An added attraction will be the many historic and classic motor sports and race vehicles that will be taking part in driving demonstrations and convoy drives around the estate, allowing visitors to view and hear the vehicles in motion.

Included in the paddock line-up will be cars once driven by Ayrton Senna (F3 Van Diemen) and James Hunt (Hesketh).

Many of the single vehicle and club entrants present will be dressed in the appropriate apparel to reflect the age of their vehicle, and entrants with post-70s vehicles will be arriving in period dress of the 40s to 60s.

Visitors to the event are also being invited to join in with the theme and help create a surreal spectacle that will be unique to a classic vehicle gathering in Scotland, and spot prizes will be awarded over the weekend to the best retro dressed entrants and visitors.

Other attractions being held during the weekend include a Soap Box Grand Prix, a Concours d’Elegance, fashion shows and live 50s-style music accompanied by appropriately dressed dancers who will entertain visitors relaxing in the castle’s magnificent courtyard.

The Autoclassica promises to be a great day out for all the family, and with free parking on site the admission prices are as follows.

Saturday 23 August: Adults £8 Concessions £5 NTS Members £2
Children under 14 Free (accompanied by an adult).
