Oldest Sunbeam in the World Comes to the Chateau

Saturday 9 July 2016

It?s not quite the oldest car at the Chateau today, but the 1911 Sunbeam 16/20 is the oldest complete Sunbeam left in the world.

The local car was built in Wolverhampton and held the course record at Shelsley Walsh in 1912. Last year the Sunbeam, driven by Hicky Hickling, was in the Concours d’Elegance, so this year it made its debut in the Edwardian and Veteran class.

Hicky, who has owned the car for 18 years, enjoyed the course and found there were no nasty surprises.
