Prepare your tartan rugs, mix up a thermos of slightly weak tea and put on your second-best set of clothes, because the 2022 Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional is right around the corner.

Last year’s show was a much-needed spectacle after a pandemic-stricken 2020, and 2022’s is shaping up to be more of the wonderfully down-to-earth same, with a full roster of cars ready to fill the Concours de l’Ordinaire and many hundreds more to be found in the unexceptional parking area.

To whet your appetite we’ve rustled up this short quiz, based around cars you might have found at last year’s Festival. The cars may be average, but you’ll need a better than average seven out of ten to score a pass – so let us know how you do. And if you haven’t got a ticket yet [One ticket for £20 admits a car full of people! Ed] there’s still a small number left – so hurry!

#1. Which car won the very first Festival of the Unexceptional in 2014?

#2. This green is an iconic shade for the Mk1 Twingo. But what is this herby hue called?

#3. Today the Vauxhall Astra is built at Opel’s Rüsselsheim plant in Germany, but which British factory used to build the Astra?

#4. What is the marvellously mundane silvery-blue car at the front here?

#5. The Vauxhall Cavalier was a rep favourite and a race-winner. In which year did John Cleland win the BTCC in a Cavalier?

#6. Which Japanese manufacturer made this boxy little device spotted at last year’s show?

#7. This Renault 11 caught our attention at last year’s show. What car did it replace in Renault’s range?

#8. Can you identify what car this unexceptional interior can be found in?

#9. This rare four-door will be on the concours lawn this year. But what is it?

#10. On which manufacturer’s car might you find a badge like this?

Finish

Results

Congratulations, you are definitely above average even if your car isn’t!

Better luck next time, but don’t feel so bad for being unexceptional…

    I just want to attend the event, not display a car. Do I need a ticket ?

      Hello Lee, you do need a ticket to enter, but tickets are not available on the gate and have now sold out, unfortunately.
