This year’s tour spans just over 100 miles winding its way through the pleasant Warwick countryside.

Commencing at Stoneleigh Park with the excitement of Race Retro,  the route heads generally south passing through charming villages and notable landmarks like the Second World War RAF Edgehill previously used for flight tests for experimental jet aircrafts. After the war it was decommissioned from RAF use and became Shenington Airfield, the base to a gliding club. Part of the former RAF air station is now Shenington Kart Track, the home of Shenington Kart Racing Club. Founded in 1959 it is the oldest Kart racing club in the UK.

From here the route heads west passing through Shipston on Stour, linked to the early wool trade and from the 1600s to 1800s a staging place for stagecoaches. There are former coaching inns, such as "The Coach and Horses" in the High Street, featuring many other listed buildings.

A short run north gets us to our unique lunch venue, where shimmering supercars can sit alongside custom creations without either stealing the spotlight. On the northern fringes of the Cotswolds, a region famed for its staggering pastoral beauty, criss-crossed network of wonderful winding roads and chocolate-box villages, Caffeine and Machine thrives itself on creating a hub centred around enjoying food and drink alongside a display of all things machinery.

Refreshed, our quest heads further north passing Charlecote Park where William Shakespeare was said to have poached rabbits and deer in the park as a young man, and to have been brought before the magistrates as a result. As we head to the top side of Stratford Upon Avon, we come across the village of Snitterfield where John Shakespeare, father of William Shakespeare, was born.

The route now is well on its way back to the show. Promising a reunion with fellow tourers, we arrive back to the HERO-ERA stand for a tea of coffee where it's time to bid farewell, knowing that we will always welcome you back for your next motor venture.
