The press release put out by Craig C (Editor of Retro Cars mag) is getting a lot of interest. We are going to be joined by several members of the Press, some of whom were present at the original launch. There are likely to be requests for rides around the route of anyone is willing to takes a passenger along.

Just to mention that as Lucknam Park is a working hotel, fully open for business on the day, we need to be recognise that we may attract a fair bit of interest. So best behaviour and smart casual attire please :angel

The drive is due to start at 1.30 but you could start a little earlier with careful park. It is about 90mins around the route so you could be on your way by 3 if you forego the optional coffee and chat afterwards
