CLASSIC and vintage vehicles from yesteryear took to the Fen roads for the Wisbech and District Historic Vehicle Club Road Run on Sunday.

The 17th road run was a great success with commercial vehicles, classic cars and motorcycles completing the route from Wisbech to Peterborough and back.

Main sponsor for the event was Elgoods Brewery and money raised from a draw will be donated to the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Last year's draw raised more than £1,000.

Among the vehicles making the journey were a 1967 Leyland Super Comet used for hauling sugar beet until 1991; a 1962 BSA A10 Gold Flash, the last model produced from a long line starting in 1950 to 1962 and was one of the top bikes of its time; a 1955 Wolseley 4/44; and a 1931 Austin H12/4.

The club was formed in 1989 by a group of enthusiasts and now has a membership of more than 100. Some members do not own historic vehicles but share an interest with those that do.

The age of vehicles owned by club members range from the 1920s to the 1970s commercial, vintage and classic cars. The club meets on the first Tuesday in every month at 8pm at The Three Tuns public house in Norwich Road, Wisbech.
