Welcome to Elsecar at the Races!
We're a family-orientated car show held at Doncaster Racecourse, in the North of England, showing VW Group and retro cars.
Now in our 6th year (would be 8th if not for COVID!) at Doncaster Racecourse, we're back there again for more of the same!
We've evolved from a small meet of enthusiasts back in 1998 at the Elsecar Heritage Centre (hence the 'Elsecar' in our name) to what is now one of the UK's largest specialist car shows at the fantastic venue of Doncaster Racecourse (the 'Races' bit of the name).
The venue has space for over 100 cars in the indoor exhibition centre plus space outside for over 600 additional show cars.
All the information you need to know can be found on this website– what’s happening, how to book a club stand, trade pitch or indoor space, how to buy a ticket and much more.
Scroll down for all the info and if you need to know about something that's not shown, get in touch via the CONTACT US page and we'll get back to you.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 16th April 2023!

'Elsecar at the Races', formerly ‘Elsecar Mega Meet’, formally known as ‘Club GTI Mega Meet’ has been running for the last 18 years - making 2023 our 25th birthday!
Over the last 12 years the Mega Meet has grown gathering over 200 show cars and 200 club cars at the old Elsecar venue, to 700+ vehicles at Doncaster Racecourse.
Due to the popularity of the meet we have outgrown the Elsecar Heritage Centre and have had to move to a bigger venue – Exciting!
A new venue comes with a new name and great opportunities to make our little meet into a great show!
However we still want to keep that 'family feel' so we hope you will join us in taking the event to the next level.
