Exmouth to host vintage car rally

Classic car owners from across East Devon will be heading for Exmouth later this month to raise funds for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

The Devon branch of the Morris Minor Owners’ Club will be hosting a vintage vehicle event at the Imperial Recreation Ground on Sunday, August 21, from 10am until 4pm.

Visitors will have the chance to browse the large displays of classic cars and motorcycles charting more than 60 years of motoring.

The Triumph Spitfire - to family saloons such as the Ford Anglia and Volkswagen Beetle - will be among the old favourites on display.

Owners of vintage vehicles – clubs and individuals - are invited along to showcase their pride and joy.

Booking is not necessary and there is no entry fee – just turn up on the day.

With no age-related cut-off date, owners of more recent cars are also welcome to display their vehicles.

Lorna Moggridge, spokesman for the Devon Branch of the Morris Minor Owners’ Club, said last year’s event attracted more than 150 cars, including supporting displays from local clubs such as the Exeter Air-Cooled Club, RS Owners Club and Torbay Mods.

She said: “The informal atmosphere of this vehicle gathering is well-liked by both exhibitors and visitors, whereby they can turn up when they want to and also take in the additional sights of Exmouth.”
