A vintage car rally is set to return to Brodie Castle
The HISTORIC Wheels Club Vintage Car Rally is set to return to Brodie Castle this weekend for the first time in three years.
Organizers of the family favorite have been forced to hold back scaled-down versions of the event for the past two years due to the pandemic.
However, the event will return in full this weekend on Sunday, July 24, and will be open to the public from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Darren Mcwhirter of the Historic Wheels Club said: “We’ve had two quiet ones at different locations, but this is the first in Brodie that will be open to the public.
“We have a young committee that has put it all back together, so hopefully we will see a good turnout because I think people are keen to get out and do things again after several lockdowns and the pandemic.
“We have a whole range of vehicles that I think will appeal to the general public even if the numbers are down slightly this year, but I think that’s down to the cost of fuel.
The rally typically features around 300 vintage vehicles, but this year that number has dropped to 225.
Despite the slight drop, vehicles from 1913 through to the 70s, 80s and 90s will still be on display for the event’s return this weekend.
Judging will take place later in the afternoon before the awards ceremony around 3 p.m.
“The vehicles are all categorized into different classes,” Mcwhirter added.
“There are 15 different categories of cars and motorcycles of different ages. We have judges and give out prizes at the end of the day.
“The judging side of things is really only for the few, so I think most people will be there for the picnic and the social side of the day.”
Day tickets range in price from £5 for adults, £3 for children or a family ticket for £12.
