Border Motor Club are running the TSW Printers Border Classic 2015 on Sunday, May 17, starting 
at 10am from Brigg Market Place.

This will be the 20th running of this event for classic cars built between 1920 and 1985, and for more modern classics built between 1985 and 1995.

This is the largest event of its kind in the Lincolnshire area and is usually the first event in the `Classic Car Season’ of classic runs.

The day kicks off with the cars gathering in the Market Place from 8.15am onwards and will start to leave from 10am at one minute intervals, to drive about 105 miles of some of the best roads in the region.

“The 2014 event was run with 75 cars taking part 
and all made it to the finish - who said old cars are not reliable!” said organiser John Savage.

“The oldest car so far has been a 1929 `Lea-Francis’,” he added, “and some of the others include E Type Jaguars, MG`A’, MG TF & TC, as well as MGBs Midgets, Austin Healey 3000s, Sprites, Ferrari, Porche, Rolls Royce, Bentley and also American cars for the first time in many years.”

There are also lots of cars from the 60s and 70s that were everyday cars then, but now only exist in the hands of enthusiasts who have lovingly restored them to their original condition, or in a lot of cases to better than original.

On the 2007 run, one vehicle was the subject of Discovery TV series `Wreck Rescue’ and the rebuild of a 1959 Austin Healey `Frogeye’ Sprite was also featured.
