Wisbech and District Historic Vehicle Club revving up for 19th annual road run

HUNDREDS of classic vehicle enthusiasts will descend on Wisbech for the annual historic vehicle road run on Sunday August 14.

The 19th annual run is organised by Wisbech & District Historic Vehicle Club and will feature classic cars, motorcycles and commercials.

The run - to Perkins Engines in Peterborough and back - starts at Somers Road car park at about 9.30pm. The outgoing journey will take vehicles via Tydd St Mary, Holbeach, Whaplode, Spalding and Market Deeping, arriving at Perkins at about 11.15am.

A static car display will take place at Perkins for about an hour before the procession heads back to Somers Road car park via Whittlesey, Chainbridge, March and Wisbech St Mary.

Once back in Wisbech, there will be a static display from 2-4pm. Cups and rosettes will be presented at 3.45pm.
