Large show paddock
The show paddock in Drachten made its debut during the 2017 edition. That was an overwhelming success, and the organization led by Sjouke Bosma decided to expand this part for the 2018 edition. Anyone who owns a classic car, motorcycle or moped from before 1 December 1990, can display his or her pride in the enlarged show paddock. Those receive a € 2 discount on the already attractive entrance price. In addition, the classic car can be offered for sale and there is the possibility to organize your own trunk sale.
Low entrance fee
Once again, the organization has succeeded in keeping the entrance price low. For € 8 (showpaddock participants pay, as stated, an even lower amount), visitors are offered a complete, varied and attractive program. Children up to 12 years can even pass the gates for free. There is ample parking space, where visitors can park the car free of charge before they visit the event that may be considered very promising based on the first two editions. It will be a classic party again, that much is certain.
The Frisian Congress Center is open from 10.00 hours to 17.00 hours on the three trading days. You can read more information on the Klassieker Drachten website.
