About the Classic Car Relay
In 2018 after two friends were diagnosed with cancer I was inspired to help make a change and for the first time ever I wanted all classic and sports car owners to join together and make a difference accross the UK. Read about Charlotte's Story here
The first Classic Car Relay started in April 2019 with a fabulous selection of 32 cars who participated in different sections accross the coastline and raised over £10,000.
When I launched the relay I had not anticipated such interest and passion, I certainly had not expected to be lucky enough to have the opportunity to make it an annual event but thanks to the incredible support of Cancer Research UK and 2019 participants we are now able to launch the second Classic Car Relay - the Road to Research 2020.
How does the Classic Car Relay Work?
The Classic Car Relay is a unique 23 day journey travelling along the UK coastline which has been designed to bring together classic and sports car owners to take to the road and help fight against cancer. you can join any one or more of the 22 locations accross the UK. You may participate in as many locations as you wish, the registration fee is just £25 per car per sign up.
Experience the Challenge
My aim is to travel around the UK in my 1969 Morris Minor Convertible over 23 days with like minded classic and sports car enthusiasts joining me along the way. This unique challange gives YOU the chance to take part with any make or model of classic or sports car. It is not a race, it is about supporting each other through the challenge of a long days drive and taking on the fight against cancer TOGETHER.
Who Can Join the Classic Car Relay?
The Classic Car Relay is open to everyone, if you own a classic or sports car and a can drive in the UK and have valid insurance you can participate.
What to Expect
The Classic Car Relay is a non competitive journey around the UK in a classic or sports car. Each day is a full day of driving with scheduled stops. There is no pressure to complete by a certain time or the day itself, as we understand that some classic cars cannot be pushed into driving the whole day. Taking part is what counts.
