Like aviation? Like WW2 history? Love driving your 924 on pretty, twisty, quiet roads? This is the event for you!

Lincolnshire is dotted with RAF bases. From abandoned relics to active stations the county is full of aviation history. Bomber County Run was Ed's first ever event and has grown from strength to strength each year.
Starting just outside the county and very close to the A1 the tour this year will be more confined to cars than it has been in the past, due to the COVID restrictions.

That shouldn’t detract from an amazing day though. We have lined up the International Bomber Command Centre to visit and several interesting stop offs on the route but, most importantly, we have Lincolnshire. What does that mean? Well the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds are one of the country's best-kept secrets. Lovely driving roads and often surprisingly empty…

As always, there will be a lot of poignant history to discover along the way. With a little luck the BBMF and Red Arrows will be back up and running by then. If they are, there is a very good chance we’ll be able to give them a wave!

E-mail me at events@porsche924.co.uk or add to this thread if you’d like to join us.

If I can get accommodation, I will be there! Will the starting point be in Melton Mowbray as before?

Would love to - have planned to for the last two years!
My 924 lives in Bourne but the cylinder head is currently somewhere in Northampton... if it gets bolted back on in time and up and running I'll be there.

When do you need to know by?

I only need to know a couple of days before if you’re a full member, like you. There’s no cost (apart from museum entry) which you’d pay on the day.

I would like to know this too please, as I'll want to arrange a Friday night sleepover.
