A host of classic cars will take to the roads of central Scotland next month as part of an event celebrating the heritage of four of the country’s best-known motorsport venues.
Teams taking part in the Three Hills and the Rest event on Saturday September 7 will visit four hillclimb sites: Forrestburn, Bo’ness, Doune and the Rest and Be Thankful.
The event will help raise funds for a feasibility study for the proposed Rest and Be Thankful Heritage Centre at the top of the classic hillclimb.
Drivers will be able to take a run up the hills at Forrestburn and Doune, while at Bo’ness – Scotland’s oldest motorsport venue – they can either ‘walk the hill’ as competitors did in the past and/or visit the museum to learn about the history of the hillclimb.
Finally they will visit the iconic Rest and be Thankful for a photocall with the Rest and be Thankful as the backdrop. The day will finish with refreshments and prize-giving in Arrochar.
The entry fee for the event is £75 for car and driver, plus £10 per passenger.
It is being run by the Ecosse Rallye Drivers Club Auto Heritage Tour in association with the Rest and be Thankful Heritage Project, Tartan Tarmac and other motor sport clubs in Scotland.
