The Strathmore Vintage Vehicle Club is set to host a special milestone event this weekend (July 12 and 13) at Glamis Castle.

The group are organising their 40th Transport Extravaganza, regarded by some as “the premier vintage motoring event” in Scotland.

To celebrate the 40th event, organisers have had bumper entries this year. A spokesperson for the Strathmore Vintage Vehicle Club said: “On display over the weekend we have over 1300 vehicles representing a wide array of transports, including veteran, vintage and classic vehicles; such as cars, commercials, military, tractors, steam engines, motor cycles and much more.”

It’s not just cars set to make an impression on crowds, a stunt show is scheduled to take place as well.

The spokesperson continued: “In the ring to entertain this year we will have the return of the Jason Smyth Stunt Show who will wow the crowds once more with their exciting adrenaline filled show.

“And on top of that there are a multitude of parades, pipe bands, and on Saturday only we welcome the Charity Companion Dog Show in aid of Dogue De Bordeaux Welfare.”

The event, which will have Glamis Castle as a stunning backdrop, runs for both days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days and parking for motorists is free. Dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a lead.

The spokesperson addded: “We appreciate that coming to an event such as ours can give you a good appetite and there are plenty of good quality caterers willing to provide much needed nourishment, whether it be a snack, a full meal or just a cool ice cream.

“We are very fortunate to be able to hold the Extravaganza in the beautiful grounds of Glamis Castle.

“The Castle provides a magnificent backdrop to our event and we can recommend the 40th Transport Extravaganza, so do come along and enjoy a great day out for all the family at the Scottish Transport Extravaganza.”
