On a designated Sunday in August a cavalcade of classic vehicles takes to the roads of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire for the annual Wisbech and District Historic Vehicle Club Road Run.
Around 200 vehicles, of all sizes, from scooters to lorries, complete the eighty-mile route departing from the Somers Road car park in Wisbech, pausing for a static display at our new venue in Peterborough – Bauer Media in Lynch Wood – and culminating in a show and prize-giving back at the Somers Road Car Park.
WDHVC Road Run Frequented Route:

The 2023 Entry Form will be available here when the 2023 date has been set.
The Conditions of Entry and Inclusion from 2022’s Road Run are included below for reference purposes only. Please be aware that the 2023 dates will be different to those in the 2022 document. We advise all prospective participants to check the age of their vehicle and ensure it is 25 years or older before entering or attending on the day. Cars which are younger than this, no matter how interesting or unique, will be asked to leave the car parks as we will need to prioritise space for eligible vehicles and the spectators that have come to view them. Thank you for your understanding.
