Pictures from the start and finish of this years Coast to Coast have been added to the gallery.
The twenty fourth running of this popular event started again from the lovely art deco Midland Hotel in Morecambe and made its way by a wonderful scenic route to Hunley Hall Hotel and Golf Club on the East coast just South of Redcar.
Not blessed by good weather at the start, things became damper as the cars motored their way up the hills to the coffee stop at the Shap Wells Hotel, and then on to the lunch halt at Akebar Park, between Leyburn and Bedale on the A683. Better weather here allowed the crews to enjoy picnics and chats to chums old and new, then off again via the Cleveland Hills and the North York Moors, with all it’s stunning scenery, to the destination to be greeted by the Mayor of Redcar Councillor Barry Hunt, and club officials.
The routine was then fairly straightforward, park the car, find the bar, and enjoy the excellent buffet. After which there was the presentation of trophies with the following awards being presented. The Mayor’s Trophy to Richard Wilkinson with his Fraser Nash BMW, The Presidents award to Paul Kennady with his Porsche, and a Special award to David Cuff, Event Secretary, who fulfilled his role admirably, in spite of one or two problems. In the evening the weather turned positively tropical! And many of the participants took the opportunity to sit outside to enjoy the odd libation and to admire the wonderful sea views
