The annual Aviva Motor Sports Association Classic Car rally was held last weekend in Norwich. A host of vintage limos and sports cars paraded through the streets before embarking on their race on Sunday. Scores of people turned out to see the spectacle which included a 1930’s Rolls Royce limo and a 1937 Bentley Tourer.
Sunday’s rally marked the 13th time the event had visited Norwich. In previous years it has taken place in a range of different locations including Andover, Bath, Chelmsford, Cheltenham, Chester, Dorking, Nottingham, and Silverstone. The route of the race is designed to take in some of the most picturesque areas of Britain providing an inspiring backdrop for this unique event.
The Norwich route was carefully constructed to take in a raft of Norfolk landmarks including the Ecotech Centre in the beautiful market town of Swafham. The race began at Norwich City Football ground and ended at renowned British racing track, Silverstone. The classic cars crossed the finishing line at this iconic track before doing lap of honour much to the delight of the on looking crowd.
The Director of Direct Insurance at Aviva, David Tyers said he was delighted with Sunday’s event adding “The Aviva MSA Classic always generates such a great atmosphere wherever it travels and it reaches hundreds of people – not just those taking part but those watching the parade of some of the UK’s finest cars.”
