This seven day classic car tour over a challenging 1,700 mile route will see participants setting off from Cape Wrath and finishing at Great Britain's only other cape, Cape Cornwall on the south west coast of the county.
The "Grand Tour - Cape to Cape" is the brainchild of experienced historic rally and classic trials exponent, Cornishman Dennis Greenslade who is a previous winner of the international Historic Rally of Great Britain - the Rally of the Tests and former four times national classic trials champion. All entrants to the tour are committed to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Relief mainly through asking friends, family and business colleagues for sponsorship.
Drivers come from all over continental Europe to participate in the Cape to Cape Tour and when they arrive in Truro, they will have completed 1500 miles over 7 days. The Truro Classic is the final test in this endurance event which tests driving skill, physical stamina, navigation and vehicle engineering.
