Whatever you drive – Club members will want to be out in force for our 50th Anniversary Celebration Run recreating the Northern section of the historic route used 50 years ago. Immediately following this run the group of Scottish enthusiasts who had taken part formed BVAC, a Club that has thrived ever since.

We plan to start in Wooler and drive into Scotland and thence to Kelso where there will be a stop and an official greeting by the Town Provost in the Market Square and a stop for lunch. Later we drive on to Mellerstain House for another brief stop to commemorate the many years of shows held there by the Club. Finally on to Thirlestane Castle to bring us right up to date for a photoshoot to finish and looking forward to the BVAC Classic that will be just two weeks away.

You may wish to add some form of embellishment to your car in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
