This follows a virtual concours run last year, the winners of which will be invited to feature at 2021’s in-person event.

Joining them will be an array of classics, many with a strong local flavour, Jaguar, Daimler, Standard, Triumph, the Rootes Group and Armstrong Siddeley all set to be represented.

And the event will kick-off with all participating vehicles driving through the city to the cathedral.

“It’s going to be a fantastic opportunity to see beautiful, premium heritage cars and motorcycles showcasing the best of Coventry’s car and ’bike manufacturing expertise in an incredibly iconic setting and we are really looking forward to it,” said Festival Director, James Noble.
