Who doesn’t love a party? 2022 marks the 11th anniversary of Classic Nostalgia and 117 years of hill climbing history at Shelsley Walsh, staged continuously (wartime excepted) since 1905. Get your dancing shoes on for a right party in the Courtyard with non-stop live music and interviews throughout the weekend celebrating music and dance from the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s to modern classics.
CELEBRATING RALLY GREATS
Ralli22 will also be returning to Shelsley Walsh. Always a crowd favourite, the rally class will feature an awesome selection of 22 Group A, Group B and WRC machinery representing British raced, British designed or British built rally cars.
ICONIC BRM RACING CARS SET TO THRILL FANS AT SHELSLEY
Classic Nostalgia has been selected as one of three flagship events at which BRM will celebrate the 60th anniversary of its 1962 World Championship victory. It is entirely fitting that BRM will be returning to Shelsley Walsh. The team was founded during the late 1940s by Raymond Mays, who had a long and successful history here at Shelsley.
Classic Nostalgia will showcase a collection of more than 20 historic BRMs curated by the British Racing Motors, the BRMA and the Owen family, Sir Alfred Owen having bought the team at the end of 1952 and steered it to its greatest successes.
The iconic sound of the V16 engine will reverberate around Shelsley Walsh thanks to the arrival of the first ‘new’ BRM P15, which will carry out demonstration runs throughout the weekend.

HILL CLIMB HEROES
CLASSIC & SPORTS CAR CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE
On Sunday, the popular Classic & Sports Car Concours d’Elegance will return to Classic Nostalgia. It is open to all cars built before 1985, and the judging will be headed up by motoring journalist and regular Shelsley Walsh competitor Simon Taylor. He will be joined by John Mayhead, classic car valuations expert from event partner Hagerty, plus Alastair Clements, editor of Classic & Sports Car magazine.
Entries are welcome from any concours-worthy car, with priority given to those with significant provenance and rarity. There will be four classes to be judged: Pre-World War 2, 1949-1959, 1960-1985 Saloons, and 1960-1985 Sports/GT, plus a Spirit of the Day award for an entry that may not be in top concours condition but outstanding in its own special way.
ENTER YOUR PRE-1985 CLASSIC
Pole position parking for all pre-1985 classic cars and motorbikes. Those arriving in a car or on a motorbike manufactured before 1985 can pre-book a place in the classic vehicle display area which is located right in the heart of the event.
Classic Nostalgia is the perfect event at which to hold an annual car club gathering in the most picturesque setting. Car clubs are actively encouraged to take part in the flagship event. All registered car clubs can reserve their own designated club display area right in the heart of the event. An award will be given to the best presented club stand.
In addition, there will be a fashion competition for the best and most authentic vintage outfit, and trade stands selling everything from clothing and accessories to motoring books, models, art, photography and memorabilia.
