To celebrate the joint 60th birthdays of Group members Nick Arthur and Gus Brooks I'm announcing by far our most ambitious driving tour to date, taking place on Saturday 26th September 2020 .
The convoy will meet at the Quayside in Castletown on the southern tip of the island with members of the islands classic car club , from here we head across to Port Erin, then we will head north using as many rural and coastal roads up the western side of the island, taking in towns with such great names as Peel, Ballaugh, The Cronk, Jurby and the northern-most village of Bride.
From here the route heads south down the East coast through Ramsey and stopping at the Laxey wheel, the largest water wheel in the world, just next door we will park up and take a ride on the Snaefell electric mountain cog railway to enjoy the amazing scenery.
To finish up the convoy will head into Douglas for a pre booked celebration birthday dinner at one of the larger promenade hotels/restaurants .
To answer a few frequently asked questions as best I can:
This is a joint tour with our sister group Pre Millennial Motors, so all vehicles British and foreign built before 2000 are welcome.
