Some of the vintage and classic cars on display during last Sunday in Tralee.

THE Kingdom Veteran, Vintage and Classic Car Club is planning two events to wrap up the classic car season in Kerry.

On September 25, the club will run its Secretary’s Scramble, a long-standing tradition in the club where the sitting secretary puts on a run of their choice.

This year Garret Foley has devised a route that will see a convoy of club cars leave Tralee for a visit to the Kilgarvan Motor Museum before a run down Moll’s Gap and a lunch halt in Killarney.

The club is also in the planning stage for its two-day Autumn Run in Kenmare, always a highlight in the club’s calendar.  This year’s event will take place on October 14 and 15.

Meanwhile, the club was invited to put on a static display in Tralee Town Park on the Sunday of the Rose of Tralee International Festival.

New for this year’s returning festival was the inclusion of Feile na mBlath which usually takes place over the June weekend. A total of 22 cars were on display ranging in age from 1938 to 1996.

“It was very much a family day and the reaction from the general public was unbelievable with many never before seeing the models on display,” said KVVCC secretary Garret Foley.

“As a group, we were very well looked after with all participants receiving a medal and food voucher to use at the event’s many stalls. The day was very much enjoyed by all who attended, with many coming well prepared with deck chairs and even picnics. Our thanks to Brian Carr for looking after us on the day.”

The oldest car on display was a 1938 Riley which was driven to Tralee from Killarney by one of the club’s longest-serving members, Mike Mc Donagh.
