The Wells Run

The Wells Run is a Touring Assembly, a non-competitive navigational road run around Kent and Sussex for classic and sports cars.

The run will start in Tunbridge Wells with tea/coffee and a bacon roll before navigating its way through country roads and villages. There will be a stop for refreshments before continuing to a lunchtime stop at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum. The motor museum contains a unique collection of cars, motorcycles cycles and vehicles, which span over 100 years of road transport history. Most of the exhibits are privately owned and change regularly providing fresh interest for your visit. The wildfowl reserve has over 2000 birds and 130 species from around the world.

The navigational run will then continue back to Tunbridge Wells where there will be a BBQ at the finish held at Team Dynamics in Bells Yew Green.

2017 Entries

Norman & Sue Redhead – Honda S2000 (2007)

Bought by the current owners as a retirement present to themselves. Currently Chairman and Treasurer of TWMC with Norman being involved in all types of motorsport for 50 years.

The Honda is 1997cc normally aspirated, giving 240bhp @ 8300 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox driving the rear wheels, 0 - 60 is achieved in 6.2 seconds with a maximum speed of 150mph.

With the soft top, when stowed, in only 6 seconds electrically, not taking up any boot space it allows plenty of luggage room. Two cabin sized suitcases, two medium holdalls and a suiter can easily be stowed. You can have a convertible sports car, which in our view is the perfect Grand Touring car.
