Sunday (August 11) sees a cavalcade of classic vehicles take to the roads for the 21st annual Wisbech and District Historic Vehicle Club Road Run.

Over 200 vehicles, of all sizes, from scooters to lorries, will complete the 80-mile route departing from the Somers Road car park in Wisbech, pausing for a static display at Railworld in Peterborough - a new venue for the traditional Peterborough stop over - and culminating in a show and prize-giving back at the Somers Road Car Park.

All classic and historic cars, commercials and motorbikes are welcome. All money raised by the Run is donated to charity. Since the club started, over £10,000 has been collected and distributed to local good causes including the East Anglian Air Ambulance. The event is sponsored by Elgood’s Brewery of Wisbech.

People who want to take part can contact the club for an entry form. Alternatively, they can join the Road Run on the day at the Somers Road Car Park in Wisbech at 9am or can join the return leg of the run from Railworld, Cubbitt Way off Oundle Road at 11am.

Vehicles owned by club members range in age from the 1920s to the 1980s and encompass most modes of road transport. There are vans and commercials; vintage and classic cars; motorcycles and scooters. Some members own classic caravans and camper vans; buses; emergency and military vehicles.

Some attend shows and rallies around the British Isles and have won prestigious awards. Others are still used as everyday transport. Not all members own an old vehicle; the club is open to anyone who shares an interest with those who do.
