The Solway Vehicle Enthusiasts Club Annual Mull of Galloway Road Run, re-named the Scott Little Memorial Road Run in memory of a Club member who sadly lost a battle with cancer earlier this year, got off to a damp start as participants gathered at the Queen of the South Arena in Dumfries.
Thirty drivers and their vehicles gathered having come from far and wide. Vehicles, old and new, big and small and some with three wheels braved the weather. Entries included modern cars,buses lorries , classic cars and even Hot Rods.

Along with the many individual entrants the event also found support from local vehicle clubs and those participants included the Dumfries Performance Club, Border Dubbers, Denton Tyres, Hot Rod Hills, Brasswell Car Sales, McCalls Coaches and a team from the McClure and Taylor Families who always come with a variation of vehicles
As the participants made their way across country the Club had a surprise visit from Wullie Carlton from Moffat in his restored ERF lorry, once his family’s road haulage this vehicle used to be seen regular around the farms of Dumfries and Galloway

The weather improved and as the run progressed to the finish a crowd had gathered at the Gallie Craig Restaurant on the Mull of Galloway to watch as the vehicles headed past to the finish on the Green at the lighthouse, Scotland’s most southerly point. A few keen supporters had made the long climb to the top of the lighthouse to get a bird’s eye view of the vehicles and the surrounding area.

Judging of the entries was carried out by members of Scott’s family Alison Smith from the mull of Galloway lighthouse team with the winners being presented with their trophies by members of Scott’s family.

Club members decided that as a fitting legacy in Scott’s memory all proceeds realised from the road run this year will be donated to a charity nominated by the Little family

Next years event will take place on the 24th of September with a car show at the end of the event
