Note also that food and drink exhibitors handing out samples will be doing this from behind the stall, to mitigate any potential COVID-transmission.

To keep track of our numbers we will be clicking each individual into the event.

We continue to monitor the latest guidance, and if this is a requirement, we will be updating our website. If you have any doubts, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. :)

Visitors are requested to take a face mask or covering with them to the Motor Show. Visitors are encouraged to wear a face mask or covering during any queuing and also if entering an exhibitors area where this is enclosed on three sides. Other than this, face masks and/or coverings are not required in general outdoor areas so long as there is no overcrowding or congested areas. However, we always encourage face masks be worn as much as possible.

Please see this LINK for everything you need to know about the Cartie Race.

The link includes how to enter, the rules, the race track and much more!

Yes, we understand the concern. However, the event capacity numbers will be strictly controlled through mandatory registration, scanning in and out of the event, providing us with accurate data on how many people are on at any one time. Our marshalls will also be ensuring that all exhibitors and visitors to the event are adhering to all current social distancing guidelines. In addition, our guidance is as follows:-

SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES

  • Members of public to be advised that 2 people from the same household should visit any single exhibitor at a time;
  • ALL to be advised not to attend the Motor Show if they or any of their household are symptomatic or self-isolation;
  • Members of public will be required to ensure social distancing at all time;
  • Volunteer stewards to be stationed at main access points to alert people to COVID procedures, and to enforce where necessary;
  • Access to the Event to be marshalled through main Entrance;
  • Members of public will be reminded of the social distancing measures and asked for compliance. Members of public will also be asked to move on from exhibitors once they have made their purchases/finished looking;
  • Exhibitors will be widely spaced i.e. there will be minimum 2m (typically 3m) between every space – this guarantees space for 2 or 3 customers to queue safely and ample space for exhibitors. Between any two facing stands or pitches, there will be minimum 6 metres distance. 

 

Note that the site is an Events field, and may be difficult to traverse due to potential trip hazards (longer turfs, divits in ground level, wet underfoot, etc). We therefore urge all visitors to maintain awareness of the ground conditions at all times. The grass has been cut to a reasonable level. However, it is not a manicured lawn :) We therefore advise to take care when browsing.

There is not a card machine on site however majority of stallholders will accept contactless.

There will also be various charity buckets located throughout the site and it would be greatly appreciated if you had any extra pennies to pop in, every little helps!

We do have a specific area available in our visitor car park for less-abled/disabled individuals or people with pushchairs. We also have a temporary drop off and pick up area near the Entrance, so long as any temporary stopping does not impede other traffic flowing around the Motor Show entrance area or causing a safety issue for pedestrians.

The venue includes free parking on site, which is accessed from the one way system starting from Torphins. We also always strongly encourage visitors to use public transport if at all possible.

Public Transport: The nearest bus route that travels past Kincardine Castle is the Stagecoach 201 (Aberdeen-Braemar) service.

At the Royal Deeside Motor Show we will be providing a number of seating areas available throughout the site.

There is also our Walled Garden - Quiet / Retreat Zone as we recognise that events can sometimes be stressful or overwhelming. That's why we have created a dedicated place within the Walled Gardens for people to come, sit down and chill out, in the peaceful surroundings of the Walled Garden.

The £45 includes your team entry and a Royal Deeside Motor Show Pass for the Driver of your Cartie.

(The Fee is to help us with the costs of creating safety barriers and track obstacles!)

You can pay online at this LINK.

This has not been revealed as a requirement to us, but we will always follow the latest guidelines and recommendations. 

Yes, the Royal Deeside Motor Show will be showcasing motors from all eras, ranging from cars, bikes, agri, HGV, motorhomes, classic, contemporary ... the list goes on!

We hope not. However, queuing cannot be ruled out. This is dependent on how many arrive at the same time, and how many people have not pre-registered. You can help these efforts by having pre-registered and being patient. We may also have to crowd control to ensure that the site is not over-crowded.
