Vintage and classic vehicle owners overcame early rain at the 20th running of the Sodbury Classic Car Run to enjoy an enthralling ride from Chipping Sodbury around Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds.
The run takes a different route each time, always starting in Chipping Sodbury High Street and this year it was an 80 mile drive that finished at Westonburt School near Tetbury,
A 1935 Hudson 8 Convertible Coupe (pictured) was judged best in show from the 219 vehicles that took part, a record number for the event. Owned and driven on the day by Nicholas Milner of Yate, the Hudson is thought to be the only one of its type in the UK.
Organiser and Rotarian Geoff Baker commented ‘I would like to thank everyone involved for helping to make the run such a successful and enjoyable event.”
Over the 20 years the Car Run has enabled the Rotary Club to raise in excess of £90,000 for charity, the 2015 run estimated to have broken another record with a profit of over £7000.
