CLASSIC car enthusiasts raced to Selsey on Saturday (August 17),to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

Nigel Baker, of Bracklesham Bay set up the annual event alongside his colleagues from the Manhood Classic Car Enthusiasts, and more than 200 cars were on show at the recreation ground.

The event was part of the Selsey Festival, but each year the group choose a charity to raise money for.

This year it was St Wilfrid’s, and they raised £496 for the hospice from the day.

“It was very, very busy,” said Mr Baker. “It is an annual thing so we will be doing it again.”

The cars were judged in certain categories and won prizes donated by local business.

To name a few winners, Malcolm Brockhurst from Fontwell won the Best Commercial Vehicle with his Ford Model A Pick-up.

Charlie Day won the prize for the furthest travelled car, as he came all the way from Swindon, and Alan Rush won a prize for his Ford Escort.

“Thank you to Mark Sadler who did the catering and made a donation, to Total Concept Paint who supplied a prize, and Mithral Racing, who run the classic cars at Goodwood and they did the judging,” said Mr Baker.

The Manhood Classic Car Enthusiasts meet every third Sunday at Sidlesham Football Club.
