Just when you thought the climax of the annual classic car show season couldn’t get any bigger or busier, it does! Over 71,000 attendees headed for Birmingham’s NEC over the weekend of the 9 – 11th November 2018 for the world’s biggest gathering of classic motoring clubs, to celebrate the many landmarks within this year’s NEC Classic Motor Show.
Duckhams, the iconic British oil brand, has introduced three classic car gear oils to their range.
80W–90 GL-4 is formulated to assist smooth gear selection and 85W-140 GL-5 offers high performance protection for all differentials, including true hypoid gear sets. Both contain sulphur and phosphorus extreme pressure agents, tailored to offer protection for a variety of classic gearboxes and differentials.
The Rally of Spain is the penultimate round of the WRC and the World Rally Championship’s only registered female driver from the 109 driver entrants, Louise Cook, was still in with a shout of claiming the WRC3 Championship, the 2 wheel drive support class of the WRC.

If your classic car handbook specifies a 20W-50 grade, then Duckhams is the premium choice.Purchase Classic Q20w-5010w-40 being launched in April 2019.
Vintage vehicle applications.If your car has a strainer-type filter, predominantly found on older and pre-war vehicles, and has not had a full flow, cartridge or spin-on type filter retro-fitted, then your choice is Duckhams Classic SAE 40 (for summer) or SAE 30 for winter.
