This year’s BVAC Classic Festival of Motoring, at Thirlestane Castle, was deemed a huge success with record breaking crowds, exciting new attractions and the traditionally extensive display of wonderful classic cars and machinery.

Taking place on 18 June, the event celebrated 100 years of the iconic British MG car, with a special display of over 100 pre-war, classic and modern MG’s on front of the Castle. In addition, scattered across the beautiful grounds of Thirlestane Castle, visitors were treated to hundreds more wonderful classic cars – of all shapes, sizes and types – from almost 60 car clubs, as well as military vehicles, motorcycles and buses.

New for the 2023 BVAC Classic was the addition of live rally action, courtesy of the Scottish Summer Hill Rally, which gave visitors the chance to see 35 unique and dramatic Hill Rally cars setting off for a special stage, in the grounds of Thirlestane Castle.

Away from the cars, visitors enjoyed breath-taking BMX Stunt shows, pipe band displays and browsing the collection of over 50 fabulous food, drink and retail exhibitors to keep everyone fuelled and entertained throughout the day.
