Classic Cars to help Air Ambulance

Entries in September’s Wessex Classic Car Tour which raises funds for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance are filling-up rapidly although the organisers still have some places available for those anxious to take part in this popular classic car event.


The event, which takes place on Sunday 18th September, will see the old cars set off from the White Willow between Bridgewater and North Petherton and follow a scenic route through the Quantock and Brendon Hills before stopping for lunch on the West Somerset Steam Railway at Minehead.

The afternoon run takes in some beautiful Exmoor scenery before finishing at Oake Manor Golf Club between Wellington and Taunton. The entry fee for a crew of two is just £70 which includes lunch and tea.

Rated by previous participants as “a fabulous tour”, “a super day out”, and “very well organised” the entry list is already more than half full with classic car owners coming from as far afield as South Wales and Oxfordshire to take part. Cars entered include Alfa Romeos, BMWs, Fiats, Jaguars, Porsches, Triumphs, and MGs as well as rarer cars such as an Ogle and a Citroen Light 15.
