The 25th Cumbria Classic Weekend proved to be one of the best yet. The Rose and Thistle Challenge on the Saturday endured heavy rain for part of the event which started at the Reghed Discovery centre and took the 60 crews on a 140 mile tour into south Cumbria and Lancashire before finishing at Lowther Castle.

Sunday saw the Cumbria Classic & Motor Sport Show at Dalemain Mansion. The weather was much improved with dry and sunny weather welcoming over 600 cars and large crowds.

The organising Wigton Motor Club were celebrating their ninetieth anniversary with a display of competition cars covering that age range from a 1923 Bentley to 1 2013 Ford Fiesta WRC car from M Sport. The Club were actively promoting �Go Motorsport� and ran a grass autotest with passenger rides and also the opportunity for cars owners to have ago themselves.
