Quay for my car red open topsFrom Italian Stallions to Lotus 7's, enjoy Poole's regular display of magical motors with a changing weekly theme.  Nine weeks of Friday night car heaven kick off on 1 July with red open top sports cars & red convertibles as Rockley Park Quay for my Car returns to Poole Quay. 

Sponsored by Rockley Park, Poole's 5* holiday park, the event showcases classic cars featuring a different marque every evening from 6pm.  

Displays of magical motors are part of Poole’s Wave 105 Summertime in the South.  Each week car owners with a specific marque park up for free, displaying their vehicles against the backdrop of Poole Harbour and mix with spectators and enthusiasts before enjoying the fantastic restaurants, continental café bars and traditional pubs.      

Rockley Park’s General Manager, Geoffrey Smith, said: “As a major contributor to Tourism in Poole, Rockley Park is delighted to be associated with this fantastic event.  Car events have grown enormously in popularity and the chance to see such a great mix of vehicles for free brings visitors to the Quay.  As Rockley Park continues to invest in providing five star holidays and holiday home ownership experiences, events like Quay for my Car help to attract visitors and ensure that Poole has a wide range of exciting and varied experiences for them to enjoy.”

Bruce Grant-Braham, Chairman of the Poole Tourism Partnership, said: “Interest in Rockley Park Quay for my Car has gone from strength to strength and is a must for every car fanatic.  And with the backdrop of the Quay there is no better place for the start of a perfect summer weekend.”
