Registrations for the National Oldtimer Day 2024 in Lelystad are in full swing. From the beginning of February, participants could register for this great event, which will take place this year on Sunday, June 16, Father's Day. This is the largest free event in the Benelux, held on the beautiful Boulevard of the Bataviahaven in Lelystad.

A mix of classic beauties

The updated website has ensured that old and new participants have found their way to the National Oldtimer Day again. Numerous different car brands and types have now been registered. Among the registrations is a special MG B, an anniversary car that is 100 years old this year. This MG B is a “Dutch” classic from February 1968. The burgundy red car with white hood has been in the possession of the current owners for more than forty years. Although the car was previously used in both summer and winter, after a self-restoration in 2000 it only drives in summer.

Special trucks and their stories

In addition to the classic cars, various trucks also register for the Oldtimer Day every year. This year an old acquaintance returns: the Citroën AC4 Camionette Bachee. This truck has a special story. In 2019, this beautifully restored car was supposed to participate in the event, but the van was severely damaged due to an accident with the charging truck. The owner restored the car full of energy within a year, but unfortunately the 2020 edition could not take place due to the pandemic. Now, in 2024, this van, with its wooden loading platform and dark red hood, will be admired on the edge of the Markermeer.

Festive anniversaries

This year extra attention will be paid to some special milestones. For example, 100 years of Chrysler are celebrated, there is a special section for Formula 1 and the 50th anniversary of the Volkswagen Scirocco is put in the spotlight.

Preparations in full swing

Chairman Ed Rentenaar indicates that his team is working hard to guarantee the quality of Lelystad's largest event. “There are many challenges to making this event run smoothly, such as finding enough volunteers and enthusiastic sponsors. In addition to their regular work, my team is busy with preparations almost every day. The municipality of Lelystad is working and thinking along well, so we are going to make it another wonderful third Sunday in June!”

A permanent place in the agenda

The National Oldtimer Day Lelystad has been held on the Bataviboulevard on Father's Day for twelve years in a row. This year the event will take place on Sunday, June 16 and is free for both participants and visitors. With the 2024 edition, National Classic Car Day is almost celebrating its fortieth anniversary and it has now become a household name in the world of vintage cars.

  1. The National Classic Car Day in Lelystad is worth a day out every year. The organization is very well taken care of.
    Every year I do my best to register and be present on this fun day, this year with a Peugeot, previous years with a Cadillac.
