Last week the Cumbria Classic Car Club staged their first major event of their club year.

This consisted of an evening ‘Fox Hunt Run’ around the Penrith area with a number of members involved.

More than 40 members and 20 cars took a ‘tulip’ style sailing route from Penrith Rugby Club to the Fox Inn in Ousby.

The club thanked the rugby club for allowing them to use their facilities and the Fox Inn treated members to a dinner of pie and chips served with local beers.

A spokesperson for the Cumbria Classic Car Club said: “The 37-mile route took in Brougham, Lowther and Askham lanes, along the closed road to Whale, Bampton Grange, Rosgill, Shap and back via Crosby Ravensworth, the new Irish ‘ford’ bridge at King’s Meaburn, Morland and Culgaith.

“We were hoping the evening sun wouldn’t materialize, but early showers gave way to relatively dry, even gray skies, although the wet and muddy lanes required many hours of classic car cleaning after the race.”

The club mainly serves the North County including Penrith, Keswick and Carlisle. They host vintage car brands as well as “modern classics”.
