Event City is just behind the Trafford Centre in Manchester and this is where the Annual Footman James CC SHOW is held in mid September. The Riley Motor Club had a Stand with 6 cars, including Tim’s and Norman’s cars. Also an Elf, 4/72 Farina, 37 Touring Saloon, and a RME post war saloon. Loads of people came to look and talk. We had the best variety of Riley models on show.
Tim Booth’s dark blue and very desirable 1937 Riley Sprite won the prodigious Sports Car of the Show Award, beating all the Jags, Aston Martins, Ferraris, TVRs, Lotus, MGs, TRs, Lamborghinis and all.
Norman Hamer ‘s silver part restored 1936 six light 12/4 Kestrel Sprite attracted a lot of interest.
