The Shetland Classic Motor Show started out as a one-off event in 1984 in Lerwick, in modest surroundings in the Gilbertson Park. Encouraged by the great response, the organisers decided to hold a second show two years later, and so began the biennial show which has grown to become a major local event, and a significant feature in the Scottish classic vehicle scene. Now held in the Clickimin Leisure Complex, it occupies four separate halls inside, plus a large display area outside.
In response to the number of exhibitors visiting from outwith Shetland, “Cruise in Company” tours were introduced and have become a significant feature in their own right. The tours are led by knowledgeable local guides and enable the visitors to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery, history and culture that the islands have to offer. It also allows the local population to enjoy seeing and hearing the vehicles being used as they were intended on the many miles of high-quality roads around Shetland.
The tours for cars are held on the Thursday and Friday preceding the show, Commercials will be on the Friday and Monday and Motorcycles on Monday and Tuesday.
Show categories include: Motorcycles; Cars; Land Rovers; Tractors; Commercial Vehicles; Stationary Engines; Bicycles; Models; Motoring Memorabilia and Photographs.
Other features will be confirmed nearer the time, and this website will be updated to reflect these.
