THE Rotary Club of Chepstow and District are gearing up for the 2017 Wye Run, a classic car event taking drivers through the region’s scenic countryside.
The Wye Run is a non-competitive event for classic and interesting cars and the people who enjoy using them.
The aim of the event is to provide a memorable and leisurely drive, to provide onlookers with the spectacle of interesting cars, and to raise money for worthwhile charities supported by the Rotary Club of Chepstow and District.
Entries are now open for this year’s Wye Run which will set off from Chepstow Garden Centre at 9am on Saturday 29th April.
The route has been carefully planned, keeping to lesser-used scenic roads through the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons.
Drivers may bring lunch or picnic and stop to enjoy it where they please along the route or dine out at the variety of eating places along the way.
At the end of the rally refreshments will be on sale and rally cars will remain on display up to 5pm, at which time participants will be awarded completion certificates, photographs of their cars and prizes.
Entries this year are limited to some 80 cars.
The entry fee is £25 for each car for which drivers will receive full route instructions and a Monte Carlo style “Rally Plaque”.
Those wishing to take part in this event on Saturday 29th April 2017 are now invited to reserve their place.
