Seaton Ross welcomes classic cars

Classic car enthusiasts brought their vintage vehicles to the region last Saturday to meet up and enjoy a casual drive.

Members of the North East division of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain met in Seaton Ross in the morning, at the Black Horse pub’s yard, where local residents gathered to look at the rare motors.

Among the 24 cars on show were a 1902 Pannard et Levassor and two Morse’s, made in the same year.

The club’s cobweb run saw them drive 30 miles to a pub near Thorne, where they had lunch, and then 30 miles back to Seaton Ross.

Pete Thomas, from Seaton Ross, who organised the run, said: “It went very well. We had 24 cars and they all returned safely except two which broke down.

“We had a lot of people from Seaton Ross come [to see the cars]. We didn’t advertise it because of safety.

“The weather really made it.”
