    Save the Date!!
    2021 will mark 30 years since the first Capri show was held in Alford, Aberdeenshire, with many more held in the period between 1991 and today.
    I'm very excited to advise that we have now booked the venue to mark this occasion and as always that venue is the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
    We are planning a run on Saturday 28th of August around the North East of Scotland, and a meeting at the Museum on Sunday the 29th.

    Exact details are still to be firmed up which I will share in due course.

    Many thanks
    Stuart and the Scottish Capri Club team

    its a great show, my last was 2009, Rumbly ran out of strength in the July of 2010...
    Capri Club Scotland (formerly Capri Ecosse) has been attending the show since the start along with the guys from Scottish Capri Club. and it was always a great weekend out ..
    last time I went up, we travelled on the Friday, camped at the site just around the corner, toured on the Saturday, attacked the track on the Sunday..
    then drove home..

    Thanks go to Stuart, and the others in the Scottish Capri Club for getting this one back on the calendar...

    Thanks chaps and thanks for the pinned post too! Format has changed quite a bit since 2009 Alan, around that time was probably the best time for the track, it got progressively more difficult to use the track and then I don't think anyone has been able to use it since a chap was sadly killed in an accident a couple of years back (not at our show). Anyway, for 2021 we are planning to park all the Capri's in a 30 formation over said track and have a drone go up and take an aerial photo. First 30 cars will be included for this (Although we will squeeze in more if we can!). Thanks all.

    Three weeks today will see the run part of our 30th anniversary celebration taking place from Alford in Aberdeenshire. On the Sunday we have a gathering of cars at the Deeside activity centre. Event will be covered in a futur edition of retro ford magazine too. We’ve put together a wee video of what we will be up to. Great support this far, if you’ve not entered but would like to entries are still open so please get in touch.
