American hot rods and trucks to thunder through Burnham
Almost 100 classic American hot rods, trucks and classic vehicles
will thunder through Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday lunchtime (August
27th) in a mass convoy for charity.
The Blue Ridge Runners will be setting off from the Oaktree Arena
on the A38 at around 12-12.30pm before driving in procession into
Highbridge, then into Burnham via Burnham Road and Marine Drive,
passing along the seafront, before leaving via Love Lane.
"With horns blaring and a long line of vehicles on show,
the procession is sure to attract scores of interested onlookers,"
a spokeswoman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
The vehicles will be on show to the public throughout the weekend
at the Oaktree Arena, the Somerset Rebels speedway track. This
year's event is raising money for two local charities - BARB and
Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance.
The Blue Ridge Runners were formed in 1989 to link up motoring
enthusiasts from across the South West who own hot rods, trucks
and other unusual vehicles. Thousands of pounds are raised for
local charities from the group's events.
