What better way to celebrate this special day and take advantage of a great family day out than joining us for the renowned Father’s Day Classic Car Rally and Yorkshire Post Motor Show on Sunday 17th June. Whether you love the gleam of hundreds of well polished vintage and classic cars, all the arena activities with vehicle concours, competitions and trophies, the thrill of seeing Michael Schumacher’s 1992 Benetton Formula 1 car or be amazed by the incredible stunts of The Bold Dog Lings, the Classic Car Rally at Harewood has something for all the family.
The Bold Dog Lings, the UK’s premier motorcycle display team, will showcase their extraordinary freestyle skills in the arena at the show; what man can do in the air with a motorcycle will stun you and you’ll see feats that will take your breath away. With heart-stopping tricks, 35ft-high jumps and interactive displays, it's no wonder they are Honda's official motorcycle display team. You'll have the chance to get a closer look at the bikes and meet the riders too; it's a mind-blowing show not to be missed, and you can see them doing what they do best at Harewood in June.
As if that wasn’t enough, kindly loaned to Harewood by private collector, Zak Brown, the Formula 1 Benetton Team Ford racing car will be on show, with thanks to local racing team, United Autosports. See the car that some of the best drivers drove including the world’s former number 1 Michael Schumacher, who achieved his first two podiums by finishing third in this car at the 1992 Mexican and South American Grand Prix, plus this is the car that also saw Nelson Piquet and Martin Brundle at the wheel. The Yorkshire Post bus will be on site and a great selection of Yorkshire motor dealerships will be showing off their very best.
You can also peruse a great range of stands, perfect for everyone (not just the petrol heads among us!) including a chance to try and buy Harewood’s very own Harewood Gold beer made from our own hops by the local Wharfebank Brewery, enjoy a family fun fair and make the most of all that Harewood has to offer with gorgeous locally sourced food at the family friendly Courtyard Cafe, and the ever so sophisticated Terrace Cafe overlooking the breathtaking landscape. Or take advantage of the onsite catering facilities at the Show for food on the go. If you need a break from the activities in the arena, then enjoy the fabulous gardens and grounds and the House for some quiet time to catch your breath between arena stunts.
