MOTORING fans were treated to a dazzling display of classic and supercars at the weekend (15 April 2023), as an impressive convoy of vehicles descended on Crieff Hydro Hotel for a charity event.
The event – organised by Mark Ryan from Driving Scotland in aid of veterans charity Erskine – saw more than 40 automotive gems travel by police escort from the Forth Bridges in South Queensferry to Knockhill Racing Circuit, before arriving at the iconic Perthshire resort on Saturday afternoon.
Dozens of veterans and their families were given the chance to ride in a vast selection of vehicles including the latest Ferrari 296 GTB and Bentley Bentayga, before being treated to lunch and refreshments at the hotel.
Erskine volunteer Zee Bremnar said:
“Our veterans are truly the most magnificent people, and it was so rewarding to see so many of their happy, smiling faces on the day.
“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved, especially Mark from Driving Scotland, all the drivers, the team at Knockhill Racing Circuit and staff Crieff Hydro Hotel.
“It truly was a really special day.”
Stephen Leckie, CEO of Crieff Hydro Hotel, said:
“We were proud to welcome veterans who are in the care of Erskine to Crieff Hydro on Saturday for what was a fantastic event, supporting a worthwhile charity who go above and beyond for those who use its service and their families.”
The event was also supported by luxury car retailers Bentley Edinburgh and Graypaul Ferrari Edinburgh, as well as mobile caterers, The Bonny Bean.
Mark Ryan from Driving Scotland added:
“It was an honour to arrange a memorable day out for our veterans and residents and their families from the Erskine Charity.
“We owe such a great debt to so many of our military personnel and we all wanted to provide a great day out.”
