What An Event ….SEE THE GALLERY HERE
As we have now concluded this years Cotswold Classic Run, (which has to go down as our best CCR so far), we would like to thank all of the entrants, and our generous sponsors again for this year’s event. Your support is not something we take lightly and is very much appreciated by everyone connected with the club and this event.
The CCR team were completely overwhelmed and delighted with around 80% of the participants making so much effort into dressing up in this years 1920’s theme, everybody looked amazing and made the atmosphere that more special.
The route took the cars through the most beautiful countryside the Cotswold’s had to offer, so what better way to explore this pretty pocket of rural England – from rolling hills and sweeping meadows to bucolic villages, than in your own classic car. So we had taken considerable time and effort in this year’s superb 90 plus mile route.
The comfort break this year was very special indeed, as possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore the multi awarding winning Fiennes Restoration, who specialises in the maintenance and restoration of Bentley and Rolls Royce motorcars. The enthusiastic team gave up a day of their weekend to welcome the CCR to their premises where they gave personal tours around their fantastic workshops with access to all areas.
One by one the cars returned to Grittleton House with the participants happily saying it was one of the best classic car events they had ever taken part in.
Following the lunch, the winners’ were invited to display their vehicles for all to see and trophies were duly awarded as the champagne was sprayed in true Cotswold Classic Run tradition
This event raised over £900 for local charity, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
The events team committee “The Cotswold Classic Run chose to support CHSW as it exists to make the most of short and precious lives and put children and families at the centre of all it does. It’s a very worthy cause.”
Frances Kenneally, Community Fundraiser at CHSW said “We are delighted to have had support from the Classic Car Run and would like to thank everyone who was part of this tremendous day.”
