In 2015 HERO organised a taster event in conjunction with Race Retro as a prelude to the Retro Classic Tour in 2016. The 2015 event took place on the Sunday of the show and although starting from Stoneleigh, the finish was located in the South of the country.

The Retro Classic Tour 2016 will see some significant changes from the 2015 format. Once again organised by HERO in conjunction with Race Retro, the Retro Classic Tour will take place on Saturday 27th February, starting and finishing on the front apron adjacent to the main entrance to Race Retro. Intended for cars built before 1992, younger cars will be accepted provided that the model was in production prior to 1992 (other cars of interest or with a “pedigree” may be accepted at the discretion of the organiser).
