Exhibitors Information

Supporting the industry since 1983

Show Profile

The show is a celebration of all things Kit Car. An opportunity to see the best of what is on offer, for the car enthusiast. The Kit Car industry has evolved over the years and our show has mirrored the changes. Our first show was at Lincoln in 1983 and the following year we moved to our current venue at the Newark Showground and have been there ever since. The show is both an indoor and outdoor event.

The Venue

The show is held on the Newark and Nottinghamshire Showground, which is situated two miles north east of the historic market town of Newark-on-Trent. Adjacent to the junction of the A1, A46 and A17 trunk roads, giving easy access to the country’s major road networks. The show centres around the modern, purpose built exhibition hall. There is also ample parking on hard standing for visitors, provided free of charge.

Visitor Profile

The visitors, enthusiasts and owners that come to our show cover the whole spectrumof ages. Some like our helpers have been to every show, but we also get visitors who have never been to a Kit Car Show before. We also have a strong family attendance as we provide non car related attractions as well.We have a healthymix then of ages,males and females, old hands and young blood. On average over the past five years we have attracted around 8,000 people over the weekend.

Exhibitor Profile

These include Kit Car Manufacturers, Car Related Indoor and Outdoor Trade, Autojumble, General Outdoor Trade and Club Displays. We also have rides etc for children. For an idea of the exhibitors we have had previously, visit the Manufacturers and Trade Stands pages.


We have food outlets during the day, and a licensed bar with evening entertainment on the Saturday evening. (Please do not contact us about Food and Drink as the showground retains the rights for the wet and dry catering at our show).
