Selection announced for 2024 Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional

Hagerty’s “world renowned” Festival of the Unexceptional celebrates its 10-year anniversary at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire on Saturday, 27th July, with thousands of mundane motors on display, and a Concours de l’Ordinaire selection of the UK’s finest base-model cars.

Launched in 2014, Hagerty’s Festival of the Unexceptional is a show dedicated to great everyday classic cars that has earned its place as a must-attend event in the automotive calendar. Showcasing much maligned and long-forgotten ‘ordinary’ classic cars of the 70s, 80s and 90s, it remains the only event to celebrate the everyday cars we all know and love.

The Concours de l’Ordinaire selection, celebrates the world of mundane motoring with a tongue-in-cheek take on the traditional concours format – think Fiesta over Ferrari and you’ll get the idea. And, as with any Concours event, the judges will be looking for originality, condition, rarity and great ownership stories before awarding the coveted trophies.

Judging of these special cars will take place from 10am, with a panel of renowned judges including Steve Cropley, Danny Hopkins and Richard Bremner. Prize giving takes place on the Festival Main Stage at 16.00.

Tickets are priced at just £35 per car, so make sure to bring friends and family in the same car for a great value day out and, with gates opening at 7am and closing at 7pm, it really is a full day out.
