MORE than 100 vintage sports cars will descend on Cumbria’s rural roads this weekend.
Members of the Vintage Sports Car Club will make their annual pilgrimage for the popular Lakeland Trials, which take place around Keswick, Whinlatter, Buttermere and Fleetwith Pike.
The event will start at Honister Slate Mine, at the top of Honister Pass, on Saturday, November 10. It will feature vintage sports cars built during the 1920s and early 1930s.
They will converge at the foot of Honister Pass, one of England’s steepest roads, to pit themselves against the challenging conditions.
The event is expected to attract hundreds of spectators, who are being encouraged to use the viewpoint at Honister Slate Mine, where all-day parking will cost £3.
