An appeal for petrol heads to be part of the Bodmin Rotary Platinum Jubilee Car Run

Fancy yourself as a bit of a 'petrol head'? Do you have a passion for cars and want to find a fitting way to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee?

Bodmin Rotary Club is organising a very unique and special event to showcase the British cars manufactured during the 70 years of the Queen's reign, as part of the jubilee celebrations. Seventy cars, one for each year, will drive 70 miles from Bodmin to Penzance on Sunday, 5th June.

Sound like something you'd like to support? The club already has a MGTD from 1952 and an electric Jaguar representing 2022, but now they'd love to hear from car enthusiasts and owners to help them fill the missing spaces for 25 cars - ranging from the 1950s all the way to more recent years.

The Rotary team are hoping to have every British make represented, including Humber, Alvis, Austin, Armstrong Siddeley, Jenson, Rover, Lagonda, Riley, Hillman, Rolls Royce, Singer, Vauxhall, Triumph, Wolseley and TVR.

For the entry fee of £25 every participant will get a bacon butty to send them off, a Monte Carlo

style plaque and a commemorative mug.

Anyone owning a British car from one of the missing years who wants to take part in this truly fun and

historic event should contact Peter Old on 01208 832333/831935
