Bath Motor Club to celebrate its half century


A 120-mile classic tour through the South West will mark Bath Motor Club’s 50th anniversary on 20 July.

Starting at the Chew Valley Lake Restaurant, participants will travel to the East Somerset Railway, at Cranmore, for lunch and an opportunity to enjoy the steam locomotives.

The next stop is at Compton Abbas Airfield, near Shaftesbury, to catch a glimpse of a Tiger Moth in full flight.

After tea, cars will travel to the Farmhouse Inn at Southwick for dinner and a talk from Stuart Turner, ex-BMC competition manager and former director of Ford’s European motor sport.

British vehicles are expected to be out in force, but the event is open to any classic or ‘interesting’ cars.

Entry is priced at £40, which includes a rally plate, tulip roadbook, breakfast, plus two tea and coffee stops. Dinner is charged separately.
