One of Chipping Sodbury’s most popular annual events returns to the town this month when the 23rd Classic Car Run takes place.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Chipping Sodbury the run is open to cars, motorcycles and light commercial vehicles made before 1990, and organisers expect over 200 vehicles will take part.

The event starts on Sunday 24 June, when all the cars assemble at 7.30am in Broad Street.  At 8.45 they leave on a stunning route that takes them through the countryside of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire, ending at the Ridings Playing Field in Chipping Sodbury. 

Cars are expected to arrive back in the town  from around 12 noon and will park up whilst the owners have lunch.

Co-organiser Mark Benstock said: “Because this is an event based very firmly in Chipping Sodbury, we like to give local residents the opportunity to come and see these wonderful vehicles”.

“Anyone who’s an early riser can come to Broad Street to see the cars as they arrive and assemble. The Ridings from lunchtime is a particularly good place to bring the whole family to see the cars and to meet the owners.”

The Classic Car Run is one of the Rotary Club of Chipping Sodbury’s annual fund-raising projects.
