 Cobweb Run Celebrating FBHVC Drive-It Day:   Sunday 28th April

See below, the event invite from run organiser Ian Graham…

After the winds, rain and a bit of snow we have just endured, spring is hopefully just around the corner heralding it is time to take our cars out of hibernation to be ready for their first major Road Run of the 2019 Season.

The Tyne-Tees Centre will be no exception and will be arranging their annual “Cobweb Run” with a circular tour through some beautiful parts of the Northumberland countryside.

The Tyne-Tees Centre will be no exception and will be arranging their annual “Cobweb Run” with a circular tour through some beautiful parts of the Northumberland countryside.

The start and finish will again be from Brocksbushes Farm which is located at the junction of the A69 Newcastle to Carlisle and the A68 south to Darlington. It is anticipated that the first car will leave Brocksbushes Farm at 10:00am. After the run of approximately 107 miles you will return to Brocksbushes for well-earned tea and scones, about 2:30/3:30pm. There is no designated lunch stop this year, so you may want to stop at one of the cafés or hotels in Alnwick should you wish to use their facilities. Alternatively, why not bring a picnic especially if it is good weather, as some of the scenery is absolutely spectacular.

The event will have as usual, Motorsport UK & Police approval and will be open to both members and non-members of the MG Car Club. Please note it is not mandatory for you to be driving an MG or other classic vehicle.

 The entry list for this is event now CLOSED – we have reached our maximum entry of cars.  

Entries are now invited for the Prince Bishops & St. Cuthbert’s Runs – see below.

Should you have any questions regarding this event please do not hesitate to contact me (Ian) on 0191 413 6321 or e-mail to:  ianmggraham@gmail.com

2019 Prince Bishops Run and St. Cuthbert’s Run: Sunday 2nd June

The 2019 Prince Bishops Run will take you on a 99 mile route which starts from Lordstones Country Park near the Cleveland Way at Carlton Bank.  Taking in some breath-taking scenery over wonderful driving roads, the route traverses parts of North Yorkshire and onwards across the County Palatine of Durham, following elements of the routes taken by the medieval Prince Bishops travelling north to Durham City.  This year we once again have a rather special lunch halt which, with other key points on the route, will attract much public attention.

The concurrent 2019 St. Cuthbert’s Run will take you on a route of some 95 miles, starting from the splendid Maritime Centre at Newbiggin by the Sea, overlooking the bay on the Northumberland coastline. This tour takes you through stunning scenery, motoring over some great driving roads in Northumberland, then onwards across the County Palatine of Durham to St. Cuthbert’s final resting place in the heart of Durham City.

A key feature of this event since 2012, is that both runs conclude around Palace Green in front of magnificent Durham Cathedral. A cavalcade of MG cars on display in this sublime setting, cream teas to hand, and trophies for the most appealing cars…Sundays don’t get much better than this!

An entry form can be downloaded HERE

Entries are limited to a combined total of 60 cars for these two very popular runs, so I suggest you get yours in sooner rather than later!
