Tickets for the 2021 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, are now on sale with special discount codes available to enthusiasts to help get the classic car industry moving again following lockdown.


Show Director Lee Masters explains: “Like everyone else, we’ve had to sit on the side-lines through the lockdown. We know some of our exhibitors have struggled without events taking place and we’re all craving to get out and about.



“So to do our bit to help get the classic car community moving again, for the first time ever, we are going to be releasing discount codes that everyone can use. Historically, we have only given money saving codes to our exhibiting clubs, but this year we will also be offering them to all our partners, media outlets, and exhibitors, as well as our own social media channels and newsletters.”



The show is being planned with a number of covid safety measures still in place that can adapt with any changing guidelines. Visitors will be asked to choose a specific arrival time and entrance hall from which to enter the show. The organisers are planning the event to ensure everyone gets the best possible experience whilst keeping safety the number one priority for all attendees. More information can be found on the shows website.



The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, is scheduled to be held at Birmingham’s NEC from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 November 2021. Tickets are now on sale.

NEC CLASSIC SHOWCASES ELECTRIC CLASSICS IN MOTION

  • ‘Our Friends Electric’ showcases classic electric vehicles with a brand new driving feature within Hall 5.
  • The models in motion include a 1912 Baker Electric, converted classics and ‘restomod’ vehicles.
  • Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, held 12-14 Nov 21
  • Tickets on sale via advanced online booking
This year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, is embracing the future with a brand new feature showcasing not only the look of classic electric cars but also how they drive.

Twice-daily, a range of electric classics will be driving around a purpose built oval within Hall 5, next to the Discovery Live Stage, with Wheeler Dealers’ Mike Brewer talking to the various companies and owners.

Show Director Lee Masters said: “Electric cars may seem like they’re fast becoming part of our future but what most people don’t realise is that they’ve been part of our motoring heritage for over 100 years.”

This includes the 1912 Baker Electric, on loan from Mr Andrew Wood. Manufactured in Ohio from 1899 to 1914, the first Baker vehicle was a two seater with a selling price of $850 and boasted Thomas Edison as one of its first buyers. Edison also designed the nickel-iron batteries used in some Baker Electrics.

Unlike other early cars, the Baker Electric needed no cranking, had no gasoline smell and was essentially maintenance-free. Not surprisingly, it was marketed to women. In late 1910, the Baker Electric was quite luxurious and priced at $2,800. It had a seating capacity of four passengers.

These days, owners include Jay Leno in the USA and there are only three Baker Electrics on the UK’s DVLA database including this example, of the 85 historic vehicles powered by electricity.

Amongst the other electric cars that will be driving will be the Porsche 356 inspired Electric Chesil E, the Westfield Eleven, an electric replica of the iconic Lotus Eleven produced in the 1950’s to race at Le mans, and the Westfield Sports.

The RBW Electric Roadster ‘restomod’ will also feature. The roadster is a brand new electric car with a MGB heritage bodyshell that has been slightly modified. Whilst the car has all the styling of a classic car, it drives like a modern sports car.

These will be joined by converted classic cars from Electric Classic Cars, the subject of Discovery Channel’s Vintage Voltage. Founder Richard Morgan has converted a whole range of cars from a Mini and a Land Rover to a Ferrari and BMW 2002.

Masters added: “With some classics being converted and other ‘restomods’ coming to market, we wanted to highlight the options available to enthusiasts who are interested in electric motoring but still want that classic styling. It’s a perfect fit for our show theme of The Journey Continues…”

The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, will be held at Birmingham’s NEC from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 November 2021. Tickets are on sale. Check the website www.necclassicmotorshow.com or sign up for the newsletter for the latest updates at www.necclassicmotorshow.com/newsletter.

The Classic show do have an advisory on their website though saying that you'll need the cert for NEC Entry. The link for NI just takes you to our NIDirect Covid page.

On the RMS Blog: The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show thankfully returned this year to Birmingham's expansive National Exhibition Centre. In the same week as the COP26 climate summit and with the Coronavirus pandemic still lurking in the background, an event that celebrates our beloved internal combustion engine in all its many guises over the last century is one to be revered.

Such a broad church is why the Classic Motor Show is such a beloved entry in the petrolheads calendar, supported by the best owners clubs in the country that bring out their best member's examples be it an immaculate Miami Blue Peugeot 309 or an original Jetta on TSW Venom wheels.
