Time to fire up clas­sic and vin­tage en­gines

Bray People - - NEWS -

West Wick­low will be filled with the sooth­ing purr of en­gines as the eighth an­nual Balt­in­glass clas­sic car and mo­tor­cy­cle run takes place this Sun­day, Au­gust 13.

The run, which is or­gan­ised by the West Wick­low Clas­sic and Vin­tage Ve­hi­cle Club with sup­port from many other clubs and spon­sors will this year be help­ing out two very de­serv­ing lo­cal causes: So­las Dunlavin and West Wick­low Day Care Cen­tre. Or­gan­is­ers say they chose these or­gan­i­sa­tions as they both do amaz­ing work for some of the most de­serv­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity in west Wick­low.

The event has grown steadily in pop­u­lar­ity since the very first run in 2010. Last year saw an en­try of 137 ve­hi­cles, which trav­elled from all over Ire­land to take part and con­trib­ute to a very suc­cess­ful and en­joy­able day.

A new fea­ture for this year will be an indoor auto jum­ble and trade area.

Ve­hi­cles with 1987 reg­is­tra­tion plates will be es­pe­cially wel­come as it is the 30th an­niver­sary of the in­tro­duc­tion of the new type of num­ber plate. There will be ex­tra prizes for ve­hi­cles in this cat­e­gory.

To mark 100 years of Ford in Ire­land, there will be prizes for Fords in three cat­e­gories.

Of course, makes and mod­els of all ages are wel­come as al­ways and there will be prizes for Best Clas­sic Car, Best Mo­tor­cy­cle, Best 4x4, Fur­therst Trav­elled and the Ka­tri­ona Deevy Me­mo­rial Cup for Clubs.

Reg­is­tra­tion will take place from 11.30 a.m. with the run start­ing at 2 p.m. The en­try fee is €20 which in­cludes a meal, free driv­ers’ draw, fun com­pe­ti­tion, sou­venir and goodie bag. The ve­hi­cles will be on dis­play in the town from early on Sun­day morn­ing un­til the run be­gins.

This an­nual re-en­act­ment is al­ways a pop­u­lar event. A range of mu­si­cal acts will fol­low on the main stage from 8 p.m. Ad­mis­sion €3.
