Classic 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

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.
