On Tuesday 27th June, Bowcliffe Hall welcomed some of the most superb examples of classic cars and supercars from across the UK onto the Estate. Part of an exclusive event and private dinner organised by UBS Wealth Management and KPMG, guests had the opportunity to view very special and rare examples of both classic marques and pristine, turbocharged beauties.
In total, 44 motors (some brought in association with H&H Classics), crunched their way up the Bowcliffe driveway before rolling onto the immaculate Bowcliffe lawns to take their place in the car display line up, whereby they were then lauded over by some 81 invited guests.
Highlights included the classic, inimitable DB5, the 2007 Spyker C8 Spyder and Ferraris both old and new, which received equal acclaim.
After extensive car confab, invitees enjoyed drinks and canapés in the Bowcliffe Drivers’ Club, before moving on to a private dinner in the magnificent Ballroom.
Each dish was designed especially for the occasion by executive chef, Andy Lawson, with dishes including starters of Yorkshire Tea-smoked duck breast with mango, lime and ginger dressing and main courses of Yorkshire Dales dry-aged fillet of beef or portobello mushroom Wellington. Finally, dessert was served, a playground of toothsome delights including grapefruit jelly and sweet basil sorbet or chilled watermelon sorbet.
In the past, Bowcliffe has hosted some of the North’s most spectacular car events, including The Benjafield’s Yorkshire Buccaneer Rally, Bentley test drives and a £13m classic car collection event to boost awareness of The Prince’s Trust.
