Over 80 classic American hot rods, trucks, bikes and classic vehicles will roar through Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge today (Saturday, September 7th) in a mass convoy for charity.

Members of the Blue Ridge Runners will leave West Huntspill at around 12 mid-day and then travel through Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea, ending up on the seafront where they will be on show before heading to Brean.

“With horns blaring and a long line of vehicles on show, this annual event always attracts lots of interested onlookers,” a spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

Members of the public will be able to visit the showground in West Huntspill (TA9 3RH) on the Sunday from 10am-4pm when hundreds of the vehicles will be on show.

Entry on the Sunday will be £3 per adult, with children free of charge. Proceeds will go to Burnham’s BARB Search & Rescue.

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.
