The Somerset Regional Area was formed in the autumn of 1997. Our numbers have steadily grown in the last few years with a few core members always available at events.
A regular run compliments a meeting where we get together for a meal, or just a noggin’ and natter, on the last Thursday of the month, at the Stonemasons Pub & Restaurant, Ilminster TA19 9DJ. We are fortunate to live in the beautiful county of Somerset, with the Devon and Dorset borders close by, giving plenty of scope to choose from either a coastal run or visit the fantastic scenery of the hills and moorland on our doorstep. We generally start with coffee/breakfast before starting the run, with a stop for a snack/lunch/picnic before wending our way to the final stop of the day for maybe tea and cake and home.
The winter runs are shortened with every day cars used when the classics are tucked away during inclement weather or essential maintenance. We are a friendly, social bunch and also attend many classic car shows and village fetes throughout the year, whenever possible meeting up with our neighbours from the Devon and Dorset areas on Drive it Day or events around the West Country. Short break weekends have also featured in our annual program of events for the more adventurous members.
We now have a portfolio of routes from our runs which in time may be available for use by visitors to the area. Just contact Valerie (Area Rep) for details.
We always welcome new members and visitors so come and join us for a bite or a run out sometime.
