MOF­FaT sHOW­GrOUND, DUM­Fries & Gal­lOWay, 25-26 JUNe

A gag­gle of Rootes Group clas­sics fresh from a tour of the Scot­tish coun­try­side made up the bulk of the en­tries at this one-day event.

The cars all be­longed to mem­bers of Scot­tish Rootes En­thu­si­asts, and took part in the run around St Mary’s Loch the day be­fore the static show to raise funds for lo­cal cancer char­i­ties. Fords were par­tic­u­larly well rep­re­sented at this year’s show too, with more 60 head­ing into Mof­fat’s show­ground.

The pageant’s prox­im­ity to the English bor­der meant the day’s dis­plays were in­sti­gated by clubs from North­ern Eng­land as well as South­ern Scot­land. Clas­sic Wheels Dum­fries, Ty­ne­side Amer­i­can, Scot­tish Kit Cars and the Mi­das Group of New­cas­tle all put to­gether stands that were a hit with vis­i­tors.

Scot­tish Rootes En­thu­si­asts says that the turnout of more 900 ve­hi­cles has made this year’s show a big suc­cess. Event chair­man Gor­don Bis­sett says: ‘The pop­u­lar­ity of this event con­tin­ues to grow. In fact this year, en­tries had to be closed off a few weeks ago be­cause we hit max­i­mum num­ber of cars we squeeze into the show­ground.’ Gil­lian Car­moodie
