Brecon Motor Club, in collaboration with The Brecon & Radnor Express, has announced a new historic car and motorcycle show to be held annually in the Brecon area. The inaugural event, being held this year on Sunday, August 3, at the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre in Libanus, Powys, will raise money for 'The Prince's Countryside Fund,' and celebrates the touring heritage of Brecon and the Beacons. The Visitor Centre has spectacular views toward Pen y Fan, the highest mountain peak in the United Kingdom south of Snowdonia. For entrants, an optional '40 Mile Guided Scenic Tour' of the Brecon Beacons countryside will be held in the late afternoon for all participants with suitable vehicles. Entries are invited from the owners of veteran, vintage, classic, sports and prestige vehicles. Cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicle s (including tractors) are also welcome. A wide range of refreshments will be available at the centre throughout the day. The event will also feature stalls, competitions, displays and other family entertainment, including a 'Red Flag' treasure hunt commemorating the repeal of the Locomotive on Highways Act in 1896. Prior to that date, every powered vehicle on Britain's roads had to be preceded by a walking person carrying a red flag. For spectators, entry to the event and the Visitor Centre is free, although a small charge for parking is made. Donations to the 'The Prince's Countryside Fund' will be welcome. Awards for the 'Best Car in Show' and 'Best Bike in Show' will be made before the close of the event. Entry forms are available from Mark Weller, the Brecon Motor Club secretary, by email at [email protected]">[email protected] or via his mobile: 07711 885388. • The Brecon & Radnor Express is part of the Tindle Newspaper Group and therefore a sister paper of the Tenby, Narberth and Whitland and Pembroke and Pembroke Dock Observers.
