The 31th edition of the National Oldtimerdag gets a British twist. The National Oldtimer Day in Lelystad is the annual celebration for historical cars, which takes place this year on 21 June. The event has a unique stage on the Bataviaboulevard in Lelystad. Every year, more than 400 vintage, veteran and classic cars find their way to this unique stage. This vintage car meeting has become the largest of its kind in our country and is free of charge.

The organization has linked some appealing themes to the 31e edition. "95 year Bentley" and "80 year Jaguar" are the backbone of the event in the capital of the province of Flevoland. The themes are flanked by musical accompaniment, the theme "70 year of liberation", an automobile market and attractive street theater.

95 year Bentley

In collaboration with the Bentley Drivers Club Dutch Region and Pre War Car, a unique collection of Bentley's has been brought together for our country. The first Bentley was launched in 1920. In its 95 years of existence, the British manufacturer has become a household name in luxury circles. The mobile collection that can be seen during the National Oldtimer Day has various models that made the brand great. Including a 3 Bentley 4.5 / 1924 Speed, 4.5 Bentley 1928 Tourer Vandenplas (winner of the Tulip Rally), Bentley 4.5 Blower Special (winner 24 Hours of Le Mans), Bentley Derby 4.2 Tourer (1934), Bentley 3.5 DHC Park Ward (1935), Bentley 3.5 Mayfair London DHC (1935) and a 1955 Bentley R Continental Mulliner Fastback Coupé, of which Rehza Pahlavi, Shah of Persia, was the first owner.
