Classic car and motorcycle owners are often true enthusiasts, keen to show off their restored cars and meet like-minded friends. Classic insurance specialists are wise to tap into the huge social side of ownership, which saw hundreds of exotic cars and bikes attended the Footman James Coffee & Chrome event, held in the grounds of The Chateau Impney Hotel in Droitwich last weekend.
The third running of this family-friendly event attracted a diverse range of machinery that included vintage, classics, supercars, bikes and military vehicles, as well as several classic car and classic bike clubs.
The vehicles ranged from a 1923 Ford Model T Hot Rod through to a beautifully restored 1964 Citroen 2CV complete with a matching child seat in the back. A large gathering of TVR models was also in attendance, as was the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club.
The Footman James Drivers Club offered members a relaxed space as well retro tunes and jazz that were played throughout the event.
David Bond, Managing Director of Footman James, said: “It has been another great day at Chateau Impney and our no-segregation-of-marques policy has meant that we have all been able to enjoy the sight of modern supercars rubbing shoulders with pre-war vehicles and classic bikes.
“Within just three events, the Footman James Coffee & Chrome gathering has become a firm fixture in the motoring calendar, and we are already looking forward to the next one in January.”
The next Coffee & Chrome event will take place at Chateau Impney on the 12th January 2020 with registration now open to participants. Visit footmanjames.co.uk/classic-hub to reserve your place.
