BRINGING YOUR CAR

Our event is aimed at classic two-door sports and GT cars. If you have a classic you want to show, you are free to do so without an invitation. Our guides at the gate will help you find a place for your car on the lawn.

If you are unsure whether your car is suitable for the event, you can contact the organiser Antti Wihanto by phone/email (+358)40-551-9841 or by sending an email to (antti@wihanto.com). Visitors often bring their own hobby cars even if they are not participating in the show. Interesting cars that are not official participants can often be found in the parking area outside the exhibition.

General instructions for participating cars:

  • Classics
    • <1980
    • Most participating cars are from 1940-1980
  • Newer classics (“retro”, “modern classics”)
    • 1980 – 1990 models
    • Not all cars are necessarily “classics”, but rather rare or otherwise interesting. If you have an interesting car, feel free to bring it along! If you would like a guarantee to participate in the show, please contact the organizer: (+358)40-551-9841 / antti@wihanto.com
  • New sports- and super cars
    • If you don’t have a classic, new sports cars are also welcome, but will not be selected for the show competition
    • Newer cars are sometimes invited to the exhibition lawn, if space permits, or if the car is rare
