Stage 1 (Day 1)
Where better to start an epic Classic Car trip around the coast of Britain than at one of the world’s most famous motor museums? Out of the Beaulieu gates and passing through the New Forest, drivers really will be spoilt for scenery, as this region contains a number of Areas of Natural Beauty and Heritage sites.
Literary lovers will enjoy motoring through Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, and there is a spectacular coastal drive along the Jurassic Coast that really illustrates what the event is all about.
Lyme Regis is particularly appealing, and you can channel your inner Meryl Streep or Jeremy Irons from the French Lieutenant’s Woman by gazing broodily out to sea from the famous Cobb.
The Lord Haldon Country Hotel was today’s destination, just past the Cathedral City of Exeter
Go! Go! Go!
Murray Walker, our longtime friend and supporter, flagged off the cars from the National Motor Museum at the start of our 2017 drive!
Known for his warmth, wit, enthusiasm. business acumen and charisma, it is almost impossible to run out of superlatives when talking about the inimitable Mr Walker.
An absolute legend in the world of motorsport, his name recognition extends far beyond the roar of the engines and the squeal of the tyres.
A true enthusiast and total gent, we were delighted that he was able to join us.
