Land Rovers and Defenders line up for Poole’s Quay for my Car

Quay for my Car 2017Two months of car heaven kick off as Quay for my Car returns on Friday 7 July with a night dedicated to Land Rovers and Defenders. 

From 6pm, owners of the classic vehicles will line up at the water’s edge as Poole Quay becomes the venue for car enthusiasts and spectators to get close to the vehicles of their dreams. 

Sponsored by Rockley Park, Poole’s 5* Holiday Park, the themed car nights take place every Friday night in July and August and feature a different marque every week. 

Displays of magnificent 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 restaurants, continental café bars and traditional pubs.  2017 will see exhibitions including Itallian Stallions, Minis, VWs and the Best of British pre 1983 plus a night dedicated to Lotus 7’s in their Diamond Jubilee year. 

On 7 July as part of the Land Rover line up the Wessex 4x4 Emergency Response Team, a volunteer charity that provides support to the Emergency Services across Avon, Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, will be at the event with their vehicle.  The team provide transport in emergencies which are hard to reach or affected by severe weather such as flooding that need 4x4 support.
