Classic 300 to visit museum

Classic cars on display outside the museum

The Lakeland Motor Museum will be helping to host the Cumberland and Westmorland leg of the ‘Classic 300’ this weekend – as part of a series of individual classic car runs taking place across England and Wales.

The Classic 300 is being organised by the Masonic Classic Vehicle Club to mark 300 years of English Freemasonry (1717-2017). It was launched earlier in May at Windsor Castle and includes a range of special tours for classic car and motorcycle enthusiasts nationwide between now and October.

The 55 mile Cumberland and Westmorland route is the first of the runs in the north of the country. It will start and finish at the Lakeland Motor Museum on Sunday 11 June 2017 and will take in a range of quieter A roads, B roads and unclassified roads across the south and west of Cumbria.

The event is open to both masons and non-masons, along with their family and friends. There are also options to reduce the length of the route, if some entrants want to spend a little longer in some areas.

Director of the Lakeland Motor Museum, Bill Bewley, says, “This non-competitive car run will include a range of classic and future classic cars, and potentially, some motorcycles and commercial vehicles. It will be a significant and colourful part of the national tercentenary celebrations, and I’m proud participants will have the chance to experience some of the country’s most spectacular and awe-inspiring scenery here in South Lakeland.”

It is £12.50 to participate in the Cumberland and Westmorland leg of The Classic 300, including refreshments on arrival and admission to the Lakeland Motor Museum. The event starts at 10am and returns to the Museum for a 4.30pm finish.
