Gay Classic Car Group hosts Eurotour 2023 in glorious Yorkshire

The Gay Classic Car Group (GCCG) hosted Eurotour 2023 – an annual event that takes places cyclically in Germany, Switzerland, Germany and Holland and of course the UK – in glorious Yorkshire. Over 200 people and 120 cars attended from the UK, Europe, USA and New Zealand for an epic weekend of driving, sightseeing, dancing, eating and drinking. The event was an opportunity to catch up with old friends, meet new friends, show off a latest car purchase, or just car tart and go for rides.

GCCG said: “We were blessed with good weather that made the stunning country drives even more memorable. Brodsworth Hall gave a touch of elegance and history, for the art lovers the vast grounds of the Yorkshire sculpture park gave time for reflection. The rally started at the historic Thwaites Mill in Leeds – one of the best last-remaining water-powered mills dating from 1823.”

All of the venues gave spectacular backdrops to the huge variety of cars. Imposing Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Bristols and a distinctive bright blue Alvis through to a very original 11k miles from new aqua Austin 1100, plenty of open top sports cars and some very rare cars too.

GCCG added: “We saw plenty of Lancias from Europe and one was celebrating its 90th year. One of our more recent members who loves Japanese K-cars brought along a very rare Daihatsu.”

The GCCG’s 1,000 LGBTQ+ members are as diverse as their cars. The GCCG hosts regular national and international meetings. Members receive a quarterly magazine and monthly email bulletins.
