CPOP 2014 REVIEW

Andrew English Wrote:

Record crowds of over 67,000 saw flaming Mavis, Chris William’s extraordinary Packard engined Bentley and Alan Minshaw’s thunderous Chevrolet Malibu, they bought their lunch from the brilliant food stalls, thrilled to the old-school grass track racing, wigged out to Status Quo on the Friday, and picnicked to Aled Jones classics spectacular on Saturday, held fingers in their ears at the chiming scream of Brain Glover’s 1965 Honda RC165 race replica and the fast-jet roar of Jonathon Whaley’s Miss Demeanor, the luridly hued Hawker Hunter.
It was all pretty memorable and most Cholmondeley old hands reckoned this was the best ever Pageant. I'm inclined to agree.

1929 NAPIER BENTLEY

Powered by a 24Ltr W-12 aircraft engine from the bi-plane era of the 1920's

MV AGUSTA - 550-3 1967

MV Agusta built its reputation around dominating Grands Prix with its ‘fire engine’ red and silver racers

1914 EXCLESIOR 7C

The Excelsior motor cycle company had been quietly building vee-twins for several years.

The Estate

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power takes place in the beautiful grounds of Cholmondeley Castle, where the Cholmondeley family have resided since Norman times.

All Cavalier and Chevette Club members attending thoroughly enjoyed the Pageant. Interest in our cars by the public was higher than ever.  We are proud to have contributed in our own small way to the success of this years event. We are already looking forward to our 5th visit in 2014!
