On Sunday 24th November 2019 our Hythe Marina Village hosted an automotive extravaganza. Dating from 1914 to 1990 the featured vehicles included Supercars, British Classics, American legends, motorcycles and scooters. There was even a Kenilworth big rig and five fire engines.
Starring in the Supercar display area were Bentleys, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Aston Martins.
Visitors were able to view over 280 vehicles lined up along Hythe Marina Village’s picturesque waterfront. Attendees could ‘talk yesteryears motoring’, enjoy a meal at the onsite Boathouse restaurant, have a bite to eat from Waltling Street Food and Pit Stop or sample drinks with HMS Spirits. Solent boat rescues also welcomed people to its stand.
“What a fantastic event to have at the marina. We make a point of hosting events which offer our berth holders something different and enhance their time with us,” comments Dave Lewis, Hythe Marina Village Marina Manager. “We thoroughly enjoyed having all the amazing vehicles on display, and also working with local and onsite companies. We look forward to welcoming them back in June 2020.”
“This amazing event has caught the eye of keen motoring enthusiasts across the south of England, showcasing a wide range of automotive legends,” says Mark Elliott Classics and Supercars on the Quay organiser. “We are extremely pleased that this show exceeded all our previous 28 shows’ visitor figures and we thank everyone for attending.”
“We encourage our marina managers to get involved in making fantastic events happen for our berth holders, like this show at Hythe, the Big Bay Eco Challenge at Torquay Marina and Proms in the Park, also at Hythe,” states Maxine Lane, Head of Marketing at MDL Marinas. “Events like this mean we can welcome local communities into our marinas which can only be good for encouraging more people to participate in watersports.”
The next stop for ‘Classics on the Quay’ will be MDL’s Shamrock Quay Marina. If you are interested in taking part check out the Shamrock Quay Facebook Page where the date will be announced.
