Over 80 classic American hot rods, trucks and classic vehicles will thunder through Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge today (Saturday, September 5th) in a mass convoy for charity.

The Blue Ridge Runners will be moving through the town at around 12.30pm in a procession through Burnham, passing along Burnham’s Esplanade, and then along Berrow Road to Brean.

“With horns blaring and a long line of vehicles on show, the procession is sure to attract scores of interested onlookers,” a spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The vehicles will be on display at the Classic, Custom and American Auto Club Show throughout Sunday from 10am in a field at Seymour Farm near the Woodpile on the A38 between Pawlett and West Huntspill.

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.
