Costa Blanca Custom and Classic Car Events
The classic and specialist car scene is rapidly growing in Spain and, although there are a number of shows and exhibitions around the Alicante and Murcia regions, until now Spain has been without regular evening events to attract the public and classic and custom car owners.
The team at Most On The Coast are trying to change that. In March 2010, we introduced Noche del Coche at Marina Salinas in Torrevieja. In 12 months more than 300 different cars showed up for the event. Due to the popularity of the marina during the summer, difficulties with access and parking, Noche del Coche has now relocated to Di Vinci’s Bistro, Lakeside Commercial Centre in San Luis, Torrevieja until further notice. We invite everyone to come along from 1900 hrs, enjoy the ‘craic’, good company, the €5.00 BBQ and like minded souls!
The Sunday Drivers Club also takes place at Di Vinci’s Bistro on the last Sunday of the month at 11:00.
Our newest event is further inland; the Catral Custom and Classics with entertainment, a BBQ, huge car park and more activities than our other events.
In the near future we have Cruise Nites planned with the co-operation of the Policía Local. TBA.
Simply called ‘Noche del Coche’ *Car Night*, it’s a fun and informal event open to owners of all kinds of interesting cars (and motor bikes) from classics, through exotics to tuned and customized cars. The Tuning boys and girls are more than welcome to bring along some neon lights and lambo doors along with American Muscle cars, Italian Exotica, Hot Hatches, Classic British, Mini Coopers, Radical Racers, Harley Davidson, Choppers and Cafe racers; all are invited to a fun night out.
This fun event is organised by a group of local enthusiasts, all members of local clubs who wanted to do something a little different to supplement their regular car meeting nights and Sunday runs.
Noche del Coche takes place between 19:00~22:00 on the last Friday of every month at the Di Vinci’s Bistro, San Luis, Torrevieja. Entertainment and a BBQ for just €5.00 too.
‘Sunday Drivers Club’ is our morning get together.
Same format as Noche del Coche except taking place in the Winter sunshine (fingers crossed) It’s a morning event, from 11:00~13:00 hrs and always takes place somewhere you can enjoy an inexpensive breakfast or brunch.
It takes place on the LAST SUNDAY of each month.
Catral Custom and Classics takes place at the Meriol Garage in Catral on the first Saturday of the month at 1830 hrs.
It has attracted the widest mix of cars from Hot Rods, Americans, Classics to tuning and customized cars and attracts visitors from Alicante, Benidorm Denia, Jávea, Orihuela and even Murcia due to it’s location just off the motorway.
It’s free to show off your car and it’s open to all cars that are classics, future classics, bikes, trikes, specialist, kit, exotic, tuning plus anything interesting or even just fun cars. It’s a very informal affair; an opportunity for car owners, who drive something that little different, to display their cars, chat and meet others with similar interests plus offer the general public the chance to see some interesting vehicles in a beautiful setting.
Entrance is free and owners can leave when they feel like it. ‘Motor’ related stallholders; insurance companies, magazines, services, mechanics and even a few cars for sale are expected. It’s also a perfect opportunity for those interested in classic car ownership to find out more about the pros and cons of running a classic or specialist car in Spain.
Why not bring your pride and joy along to one or all of our Custom and Classic Car Events?
See you all there.
