Brit classics tackle annual tour in Luxembourg

| 24 Jun 2012

The British Sports Car Owners' Club of Luxembourg braved dreadful weather to hold its 35th annual sporting tour.

Some 30 cars were entered for the 16-17 June meeting with rally marshal Paul Welbes allowing participants to choose between a 'tourist' category with a road-book or the tougher expert class with just maps to guide them along the narrow roads through the mountains around the Sure valley.

The rally was based at the restored medieval castle of Bourscheid and the oldest car in the field was an 1937 MG Cabriolet.

Other British machinery included Lotus Elans and a Morgan Plus 8 that had a scary near-miss on a public road section that caused it to lose its bumper.

Jaguar XK150s, Triumph Stags and Austin Healeys were well represented too.
