Fifty classic cars will hit Cotswold roads as part of the popular Corinium Run on Sunday.

The run, which was first staged in 2004, is designed for crews to navigate over a 100 mile route using the most scenic and lesser used roads of the Cotswolds.

Starting and finishing in at The Highway Man Inn in Elkstone, the run includes four sections throughout the day, including breaks at various locations for coffee, lunch and afternoon tea, before returning to the start venue for an end of event meal.

The route, chosen for its scenic element, is covered in a specifically designed road book, using easy to follow Tulip navigational diagrams, first used in European rallies in the 1960s.

Martin Saunders, chairman of Cirencester Car Club and clerk of the course for the run, said: "The Corinium Run is one of the club’s most notable events of the year and attracts a large number of entrants from across the country.

"This year, we have changed the event slightly to give crews and the small volunteer organising team the task of organising a friendly and enjoyable event, with good roads, scenery and company.

"Also, as the run involves no competition, entrants do not require a motorsport licence or a specially prepared car, which results in an enjoyable and social day out for all crews, exploring the beautiful area we are fortunate enough to live in. It also means we can attract a wide assortment of cars ranging from a 1928 Clyno Tourer to a 2012 Morgan."

Ben Amor, publicity officer for Cirencester Car Club, added: "The Club has been busy preparing for yet another successful Corinium Run and we have again received a full entry this year of 50 crews. We, as organisers, intend to run an event we ourselves would like to attend and consequently look forward to seeing many new and returning faces on the day."

A trophy in memory of previous event supporter Mike Webb will also be presented by a committee member to the owners of the car they would most like to drive home in.

All entrants who complete the run will be awarded with a finishers certificate as well as a photo which will be taken by a professional motorsport photographer.
