Wirral Historic Vehicle Rally to hit the streets

12th July 2012

Categories: News

A procession of classic cars will adorn the streets of Wirral later this month.

Hundreds of spectators are expected to line the streets next Sunday (July 22) to watch Wirral’s historic car rally.

Now in its 13th year, the event attracts classic cars dating from 1907 to 1972 from across the north to drive around Wirral from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The rally’s new starting point is Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton, and it will pass through Irby, Moreton, Saughall Massie, Meols, West Kirby, Caldy, Thurstaston and Bebington before finishing at Port Sunlight, where a prize-givingŠceremony will take place.

Wirral Classic Car Club has organised the rally, supported by Wirral Council.

Club chairman Blair Percival will be driving a 1959 Austin Healey Sprite with his girlfriend Dawn Edwards.

He told the News: “The rally will have a parade of cars dating back to the very earliest days of motoring.

“The oldest will be Richard Gardner’s 1907 Patterson and it will also feature vintage cars of the 1920s, 1930s and 1950s, plus 1960s vehicles.

“Many of the entrants travel from as far away as Derbyshire, Lancashire and mid-Wales.

“The Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral, Cllr Gerry Ellis and his wife Margaret, will travel in one of the entrants’ cars on the afternoon run.”
