Truro Classic Car Challenge

Truro Classic Car Challenge

Truro Sunday 29 April 2012, 10am - 12.30pm
42 Classics challenge the city streets and perform driving skills tests, 12.30pm - Prize giving
Displays on Lemon Quay all day

The Truro Classic is the spectacular conclusion to the 9th Cape to Cape Tour, a 1500 mile route from Cape Wrath in Scotland to Cape Cornwall. With the city centre roads closed, each of the 42 drive a special circuit of the city streets including a driving skills test.

The 42 cars are on display throughout the day on Lemon Quay as well as displays from our sponsors. The drivers and navigators will be happy to show you around their cars and to share their thrills, spills and adventures of their journey from Cape Wrath. There are plenty of places to see the cars on the circuit route from the start point on Lemon Quay through Victoria Square, Kenwyn Street, River Street, Boscawen Street for the test and the finish line on Quay Street. Both the Cape to Cape Tour and Truro Classic Car Challenge are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Having raised over £420,000 over the last 8 years, the organisers are hoping to beat the £500,000 mark this year so please give generously.

Bus services will be running as usual and all usual car parks will be open.
