King's Lynn car club set for annual convoy of classics
Iconic vintage and classic cars will make their way through West and North Norfolk villages this weekend during the King’s Lynn Motor Club’s annual classic car run.
Nearly 90 cars have been entered and will leave the start at Anglia Car Auctions site, at Lynn from 10am on Sunday.
They will be flagged off by Tony Longmate, who has been involved in the event since its inception 42 years ago, either as an organiser or a competitior.
The entries range from Bentleys and Rolls Royces through to a variety of Jaguars, Austin Healeys, MGs, Triumphs, a Lotus or two and Austin Seven, Austin 10 and an early Model A Ford. They date from the 1920s to 2004 and will line up at the finish to be judged by fellow competitors for class awards and for the selection of the Car of the Day.
The event will make a donation to NARS (Norfolk Accident and Rescue Service) and its main sponsors are Anglia Car Auctions.
The route will take the cars from Lynn through Shouldham, Fincham, Cockley Cley, Hilborough, Ashill, Necton, Castle Acre, Great Massingham, Helhoughton and to the Thursford Collection for a lunch break. Then it is via Little Walsingham, South Creake and Tattersett to the finish at Pensthorpe Natural Park.
