The Red Hackle Tour - 6 May 

We return to the land of the Black Watch with a new route this year.
Organiser George Shand  produced a challenging and enjoyable run
starting at Tyndrum, touring the amazing scenery of the west coast and highlands of Scotland.
A great tour taking in sights and places you would never guess existed. A good selection of tight twisty roads mixed with some good flowing sections to suit all styles of driving.

Perth City and Scone Palace bathed in unbroken sunshine and blue skies to welcome the thousands of visitors to the Perthshire Classic Car Festival on Saturday 21 April.

The Parade cars arrived at Scone Palace to be 'dressed; with their rally plates and other documentation, before driving down to Tay Street in Perth to line up along the side of the River Tay.

See some drone footage of the cars linig up on Saturday morning

Meanwhile the club cars from Jaguar Drivers Club, MG Octagon club, PACE and other individual entries arrived to display their cars, exotic, vintage, specials and supercars in the beautiful grounds of Scone Palace.  

Morris Leslie brought along a selection of his extensive collection of classic and rare cars. to join over 200 cars lined up across the Palace grounds for the visitors and their families to see and chat with the owners. HRH Prince Michael of Kent was also talking to owners as he walked round the displays. Special cars included the open top Rolls Royce used by Winston Churchill when he was given the freedom of the City of Perth, An even older Rolls Royce
Silver Ghost, Colin McRae Subaru Imprezza, and Ford Escort, Bugatti Veyron and Lamborghini..

Jaguar were well represented with the XK120 Coupe, LWK707, which ran a full week non stop at 100mph, with Stirling Moss at the wheel in 1952 on display from Jaguar Heritage.

John Clark brought along three of his own cars on the day, all three were on the parade then on display at the palace. 1924 Bentley Vanden Plas, 1951 Tojeiro, 2010 Alfa Romeo 8C Coupe.

The aerobatic display by a Pitts Special had everyone looking skyward in the afternoon. The Pitts biplanes dominated world aerobatic competition in the 1960s and 1970s, and even today remain a potent competition aircraft in the lower categories. Thrilling to watch!!

This was a day out for all the family, with children's entertainment and competitions, and attractions for the ladies.

Period costume was encouraged and many were dressed in  keeping with their vehicles heritage.

 Tour of the Wall - 25 March 2018

A sunny if rather chilly morning greeted around 30 starters for this first event of the CCHMSC season, which took us over the byways through the Scottish Borders, before crossing over into England. After a lunch stop we headed along the route of Hadrian's Wall allowing time to visit some of the Roman forts and exhibitions on the way. Soft tops were down under blue skies and sunshine.  A great way to start the year.
