Sports Cars in the Park at Newby Hall.

Historic Newby Hall near Ripon is the setting for a spring celebration of sports and super cars next month.

Up to 1,400 cars are expected to be on display at the annual ‘Sports Cars in the Park’ event where owners will showcase their vehicles to fellow enthusiasts and visitors.

The show brings together exhibits from car clubs and individual car enthusiasts.

A wide range of prestigious car marques will be on display including Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren.

The Alfa Romeo display will feature an 8C Competizione, one of only 500 manufactured by the Italian marque.

There will also be displays featuring Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Ford and Jaguar as well as fun and classic cars.

Sports Cars in the Park, set in the magnificent parkland at Newby Hall, attracts hundreds of visitors and returns to Newby for a second showing in September.

Founder Chris Crossley said:

“Sports Cars in the Park never fails to disappoint – it’s a very family-friendly event with owners keen to share their car passion with other enthusiasts and of course visitors.

“We are hoping for a bumper crowd this year and again in September.”

There will be a range of trade stands including Boroughbridge based Alexanders Prestige and Porsche Centre York as well as market stalls.

Film of the exhibits will feature on Sports Cars in the Park’s YouTube and Instagram platforms.

Stuart Gill, Commercial Director at Newby Hall, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Sports Cars in the Park again this May.

"It’s a great family day out with enthusiasts sharing their love for their prized cars with visitors who can enjoy a wide range of vintage and new marques in our beautiful North Yorkshire setting.”
