Players Classic, it’s got to be one of the most anticipated car events on the calendar, and for good reason… Take the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit, fill it with the best modified cars from the UK and Europe, add some incredible sponsors, traders, entertainment, and of course great people, and the results speak for themselves. Players Classic has that chilled vibe, crucial to the success of a car show. This year, Jay, Carl, and the rest of the team behind Players decided to take things a step further and turn it into a two-day event. The idea was to make day one (the Saturday) a track day, with the usual pre-booked track cars taking to the circuit all day long, with a similar show car layout to previous years – imagine cars scattered around the grounds of Goodwood, it’s a pretty amazing sight. Day two (Sunday), saw the track taken over by show cars – which were parked all up and down the main straight – in a similar style to Goodwood’s own events, this was an awesome opportunity to actually see many more cars than you would have in past Players Classic shows. If you want to see variation, this is the place to be. Check out our highlights from this year’s event, and don’t forget the bonus gallery at the end!

Players Classic was the first ever show we attended back in 2013 as Slam Sanctuary – it’s amazing to see how much it has grown since then. All these years later, it still very much remains one of our favourite car events in the UK. The quantity/quality of cars, variation, and perfect setting would be very difficult for anyone to top. Combining so many aspects into two days has just made it even more enjoyable and accessible to everyone. Can we just go back every weekend?
