Man­u­fac­turer seeks 50 ‘in­ter­est­ing’ clas­sics for a spe­cial cen­te­nary run

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Mitsubishi’s UK arm is or­gan­is­ing an ex­clu­sive tour to help the Ja­panese man­u­fac­turer cel­e­brate the 100th an­niver­sary of its first car. The cen­te­nary run, in hon­our of the Mitsubishi Model A, will take place on 30 Septem­ber.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now open for own­ers of UK-spec­i­fi­ca­tion Mit­subishis regis­tered be­fore 2007, with the ‘most in­ter­est­ing’ 50 ve­hi­cles be­ing in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the event.

The tour is to start at the com­pany’s UK head­quar­ters in Cirences­ter, be­fore em­bark­ing on a 90-mile route that takes en­trants through Glouces­ter­shire, War­wick­shire and Worces­ter­shire.

It will cul­mi­nate at Shel­s­ley Walsh Hill Climb, the old­est op­er­a­tional mo­tor­sport venue in the world. and par­tic­i­pants will be of­fered the rare op­por­tu­nity to take two runs in their cars up the 1000-yard course that has hosted events since 1905.

Lance Bradley, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Mitsubishi Mo­tors in the UK, says: ‘Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the UK com­pany’s 40th an­niver­sary in 2014, we are de­lighted to present an­other event along the same lines to mark the cen­te­nary of Mitsubishi’s first pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cle.’

As well as the 50 Mit­subishis se­lected to rep­re­sent the spirit of the event, a col­lec­tion of ve­hi­cles from the Mitsubishi UK her­itage fleet driven by VIP guests, jour­nal­ists and com­pany di­rec­tors will also take part in the tour. Clos­ing date for en­tries is 25 Au­gust. For more de­tails and to reg­is­ter your in­ter­est, visit the web ad­dress be­low.­te­nary-tour

The car­maker hopes the tour will be as pop­u­lar as the 40th an­niver­sary of Mitsubishi in the UK.
