Lancaster Insurance Classic Car Show

11-13 November 2016

Well what an event! We were all totally shattered but elated after what was our busiest & most successful NEC event ever. Everyone that visited us loved the stand and the feedback was scimply brilliant. Yes the stand was smaller this year but that was the penalty for being located the premier hall and in a premier location.

Zoute Grand Prix

October 2016

The Zoute Grand Prix. Ever heard of it? I hadn't but did read an article in a Classic Car journal whilst flying back from the states a few months ago. It read that the event was like a Belgium equivalent of our Goodwood Revival save the circuit racing. What an opportunity I thought it would be to see if we could get a Middlebridge assessed and invited to attend an International Concours d 'elegance.

Pistons and Props 2016

24-25 September 2016

This is our final outdoor show of the season and boy what a show, we had five cars on our stand (See pictures) and I think it's fair to say that we were all surprised at the continued increased interest in the marque, we noted this at the Manchester show a week before.

Footman James Manchester Classic Car Show

17-18 September 2016

This event is a first for the MESS and our stand was contiguous with the High Peak Reliant stand and I must say they put on a great and varied display of the various Reliant models.

NEC Classic Car Show 2015

Pistons and Props 2015

September 2015

This event seems to have become a firm Middlebridge favourite, once again we were blessed with great weather for the whole weekend.

Innaugural Middlebridge Rally

04/10/2009

This event was organised by George Sampford who has really excelled and helped forward the marque this year (well done and thanks George). This event followed closely behind the Curborough anniversary meet and although not as many cars attended (10 in a row) the event was a huge sucess, the cars were lined up in the Centre of Nottingham (Market Square) with our banner proudly advertising the marque, the people of Nottingham were very keen and interested in the cars and some were shocked to discover they were built just around the corner in Beeston.
