Annual Wye Run Classic Car Event

A scenic drive for classic cars. Due to Corona virus we have had to cancel this event

The Club staged its 17th Annual Wye Classic Car Run on Saturday 4th of May last year.  Some 62 cars took part, ranging from a 1916 Crossley tourer to the more modern Morgan, Jaguar E-Type and Morris Minor.   At the Chepstow Garden Centre participants assembled for briefing and a pack showing places of interest en-route, reminding the drivers that this was not a race but an enjoyable drive between interesting locations set in wonderful scenery.  A rally plaque was displayed on the front of each car.
Every year a different route takes competitors through some of the wonderful local scenery.   Competitors having stocked up on a bacon sandwich left at 2-minute intervals.  Unusually this year the route went eastbound routing through Blaise Castle, the Vale of Berkley and up into the Cotswolds to Painswick to the estate of Miserden. Those in open sports cars welcomed a hot cup of tea and a large slice of homemade cake at this delightful location with its Lutyens gardens.   Then west around Cheltenham to Sudeley Castle where many enjoyed lunches.  Afterwards on into deepest Gloucestershire and Goodrich Castle.  
The final leg was southwards, into Monmouthshire and down the beautiful Wye Valley to Tintern and The Anchor Inn. The intense chatting, smiling and deep satisfaction shown by everyone showed how successful the event had been.  All the teams completed the 120-mile Wye Run and prizes were awarded by Rotary President.  All of the funds raised were allocated to Rotary Charities.
