The original Stig is set to come to Bridlington as the town’s first ever Weekend of Motoring event is announced.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council announced its event which will take place from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 September.

With a huge range of classics, vintage, supercars, VWs, modified and beach buggies, displays will be situated in carefully tailored locations across the town for a truly memorable weekend of motoring.

The event is free to the general public and will feature an evening event on the Friday, hosted by the Bridlington Tourism Association, taking place at the Park and Ride; filled with cars of all variety with a blend of street food traders and entertainment.

As part of the weekend The Spa Bridlington will be hosting a gala dinner on the Saturday evening with a twist; ‘The Original Stig’, Perry McCarthy.

Tour Britannia have devised a Sunday Car Challenge that will take participants on a scenic and atmospheric tour of the East Riding.

Alec Poole, Irish Auto Racing Champion and Tour Britannia Director, said: “You do not have to have any competitive motoring experience to enjoy the Sunday Challenge.

“The weekend of motoring encourages everyone to drive and enjoy not only the Wolds but the coastal roads as well.”

Festival director Lauren Frost said: “We really want to create a buzz around the town and put on an event that has people dotting from one hub to the next.

“That’s the beauty of it; it’s not all in one place and each location will represent the cars displayed there, making each spot unique.”
