Cartagena with Clasicos Mazarron

Posted on

We’d heard about the ‘Asociacion de Vehiculos Clasicos Mazarron’  car show in Cartagena from Andy Coomb in the ‘Sports and Classic car group Mazarron’. Andy had invited me and Julie to join them if we we’re free.
 
It was an early start, up at 07:00am to give the 3000GT another quick wipe over. Thankfully we woke to blue skies and the strong winds from the night before had abated. We set off at 08:45am to meeting up with several of their members in Campasol at 09:30am as agreed.  We were the first to arrive, I must have been a bit heavy with my right foot, but with the clear early Sunday morning roads, it was a pleasure to allow the 3000GT to stretch her legs a bit.
 
Over the next 15Mins the others all started to arrive, our car was given the ‘once-over’ by the members and some light hearted banter showed she met with their approval. Then, very kindly they suggested we all took the country road to Cartagena so we didn’t have to drive all the way back to the motorway again.
 
So in convoy off we all went and arrived at the port around 10:20am, when to our surprise the organisers invited us to add our cars to their show! The marshals showed each of us where they would like our cars parked. 
 
There must have been 150+ show cars there and the place was packed with visitors who has come to see the wide variety of cars on display. We were asked to register are cars on the forms provided, we we’re then given tickets for free food and drink as a thank you for coming with our cars, along with free club pens and the traditions bag of tomatoes.
 
The show started to wind down around 13:00 and each of us left when we were ready, we left around 13:30 and headed back to Campasol, where the rest of the members were waiting in a bar for us. After food and drinks, we headed home around 16:00. A wonderful day out with our new car and was made very welcome by both clubs.
