If you’re a fan of a particular car marque or generally passionate about motor vehicles of all vintages, make sure you head down to Poole Quay one Friday during the summer months to catch Quay for my Car. This popular motor event dedicates itself to a different theme ever Friday in July and August. Proud owners whose wheels fit the week’s category are invited to showcase their motors for free for likeminded enthusiasts to admire and enjoy.
The 2017 programme kicked off on 7 July with Landrovers featuring Defenders and the following week was the turn of the Minis to take to the stunning Quayside. The next event, on Friday 21 July was the turn of the Italian Stallions to take pride of place in front of the historic Quay and grand Poole Harbour. Other themes featured roaring Ferraris, Alfa Romeos, Lamborghinis, Fiats, Maseratis and more lined up and ready for inspection while their proud owners gladly share their stories and tips.

Quay for my Car creates a lively and bustling atmosphere, where petrolheads and Sunday drivers alike are free to mingle, swap notes and spend time talking about their passion. Why not make a night of it by popping in to one of the Quay’s pubs, café bars and restaurants while you’re here?
If your motor fits the bill, simply turn up from 6pm when the road closes to the general public. Spaces are available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis for a maximum 100-120 vehicles and from then it’s one in, one out. If you’re planning on coming down to exhibit or just to enjoy, make sure you check the website around 3pm on the Friday as each event is weather dependent.
