Car enthusiasts treated to best of British as TVRs roar into town
3:13pm Sunday 17th March 2013 in News
DOZENS of sports cars roared into a North-East market place this afternoon during a run to welcome the driving season.
The Tees Valley TVR Car Club hold a Cobweb Run each year, taking their vehicles out of the garage after the long winter and enjoying the best of the region’s roads.
The group of 40 TVRs, a British sports car brand that ended production five years ago, started their day in Scotch Corner, following a route through Wensleydale and into Teesdale, before meeting in Darlington’s Market Place.
The colourful collection of cars gathered a crowd of motoring fans and admirers.
Paul Everington, regional organiser for the club, said: “We have people coming from the far north of England and also from Manchester, so we are quite spread out.
“The cobweb run gives us a chance to get together for the first time in the year and it’s something we’ve done for quite a long time.
“We didn’t intend for it to become a car show, we thought Darlington would be a nice stopping off point, but we seem to have attracted a bit of attention.”
