Another Classic event bites the dust!

Classic & Sports Tour of Cornwall, 1st July 2012.

Sunday’s good weather saw Newquay Auto Club hold their annual charity car tour in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care.
Classic cars from a bygone age, all in pristine condition, enjoyed a challenging 95 miles around our stunning county.

The course started from Fraddon, to Newquay, Mawgan Porth and back to Victoria Inn at Roche for coffee.
From Victoria the route wheeled its way cross country for an enjoyable lunch halt at The Granary, Looe before heading up to Millbrook for a run down the beautiful coast road. Their journey continued in a northerly direction towards Minions via Landrake, Pillaton and Upton Cross. Finally a run following the Fowey river all the way to Bolventor saw everyone sitting down to a cream tea at Jamaica Inn.

At the finish prizes were presented to the vehicles judged on condition and age.
Overall winner of the Tregoning Trophy went to the 1962 Daimler SP250 Dart owned by Keith Prance.
Best sports car (Kessells Garage Trophy) Graham Brokenshire, 1978 Aristocat Jaguar XK150.
Best saloon car (Lewis BMW Cup) Phillip Brooking, 1966 Triumph Herald 1200.
Best Concours car (Western Leisure Trophy) Mike Bunt, 1993 Mini Cooper SPi 1.3i.
Best Convertible car (Ryders Garage Trophy) Geoff Trewella, 1991 Jaguar XJS Convertible.
1950 to 1959 (Mitchell & Webber Trophy) Paul Tucker, 1959 Triumph TR3 Sports.
1960 to 1969 (Lewis BMW Trophy) Peter Marnham, 1967 Jaguar Series 1 E Type Roadster.
1970 to 1979 (South Coast Trophy) Mr H Philpot, 1972 MGB Roadster.
