Crathes Vintage Car Rally will welcome car fans

Vintage cars and motorcycles from the 1920s and 1930s will be among the 280 vehicles on display at the annual Rotary Club Banchory Vintage Car and Motorcycle Rally this weekend.

The event, which is expected to draw thousands to Milton Field, Crathes, will take place tomorrow, with main beneficiary Clan Cancer Support, which opened a new wellness center in Banchory last year.

As well as the range of vintage cars, motorbikes and modern era classics that will take to the grounds, visitors can also enjoy a range of family events during the day.

Classic car tour of Inverness hits the road again

Clan invites visitors to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the entertainment tent where a range of acts will perform.

These include Aberdeen favourites, Alba Acapella and Big Mountain, and local Banchory talent including Coutts School of Highland Dancing, Banchory Strathspey and Reel Society, Deeside Dance Center and Stardust Musical Theater Group.

Fundraising for the fight against cancer

Rotarian Neil Booth, Chair of the Organizing Committee, said, “The Clan team contributes significantly to the day’s program and is well deserving of its contribution to the funds raised.

“We are very grateful to all of our sponsors and everyone who supports the event in so many different ways.

“With the support of the public, we look forward to raising a significant amount of money for Clan and other local charities.”

Electric meets vintage: the value of classic car conversions

A total of 30 cars will road run to Torphins, Inchmarlo and Banchory before returning to the show ground where all of the vehicles on display will be judged in nine different classes.

The award ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m.

This year’s sponsors are Station Garage, Torphins, franchise holders SsangYong, and Aberdeen-based Oceanscan, suppliers of offshore personnel and equipment to the energy sector, with additional support from Stan England Builders, Deeside Memorials, The Strong Water Company, Taylors of Banchory and Duncans of Banchory.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is £7 for adults (£5 discount) and £20 for a family of four, with under-16s free.

Clan provides free emotional and practical support to anyone affected by any type of cancer, and their family, carers and friends, in the North East of Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

Services include counselling, complementary therapies, social and wellness activities and dedicated child and family support, as well as affordable B&B accommodation in Clan Haven for those traveling to Aberdeen hospitals for appointments or treatments.
