    There were 38 Tigers at Capel Show 2022 and another 12 Alpines on display, plus a couple of others in the car park. This is a video of the day. This is an exceptional show with over 700 classics there. It raises £1,000s for local charities. I hope that this is of interest to you.

    Great video and a really nice show. Good to hear that a lot of young people volunteer to help make this
    show a success! Very interesting to see not only British cars but quite a few American cars too.Lots of
    Corvettes , Vipers and Rancheros & trucks. Your show is almost the polar opposite of shows here where
    there are more US & hot rods than British/foreign cars. Kinda like your show better!

    I am a little surprised to see so many tigers at a UK event. I thought they shipped most of those stateside. ;)

    My understanding is that the Tiger was made primarily for the American market but they still made plenty of Right Hand Drive ones for the U.K. as well as the Tiger pursuit vehicles for the Police. It was amazing to see 38 together at the same time, I have never seen that many Tigers in one place before.

    If ever any of you guys in the U.S. come over to the U.K. you should try and do it when one of the big classic shows like this one is on. I'm certain that you would enjoy seeing the different cars and motorcycles. There are all manner of small scale specialist manufacturers that have produced sports cars over the years in Britain, many of which will have never exported to the States. There are one or two that you can see in this video.
