The VCC’s 13 current past presidents will be taking part in motorsport events throughout the UK, including the Chateau Impney Hill Climb in July.
Some of the highlights of the year-long celebration include the most recent past president, Ruth Moore, taking part in the VCC Creepy Crawly rally on 17 and 18 April in her 1902 De Dion Bouton. Participants are stopping off at a variety of locations during the weekend including Hinchingbrooke House, former home of Oliver Cromwell and the Earl of Sandwich.
Veteran driver and former VCC president Brian Moore will be heading to the Hill Climb on 11 and 12 July to compete in his 1907 Métallurgique Maybach Special, as part of the Edwardian and Veteran Cars class alongside the Piccard-Pictet and De Dietrich.
Showing that former presidents are not shy of covering high mileages in their cars, Nigel Bradshaw will be venturing from Blackpool to France from 20 to 25 May for the South East section’s Pas de Calais event, while past John Longden will be driving his Model T Ford from his home in the Midlands up to Scotland for the Scottish event from 20 to 25 September.
The year of celebration will be rounded off with Johnny Thomas participating in his 51st Royal Automobile Club’s London to Brighton Run on 1 November, with the first cars departing from the Serpertine at daybreak.
