Erskine Veterans Thrilled with Supercars

Erskine Veterans Thrilled with Supercars

Erskine Veterans and their families were dazzled by the display of classic and supercars as an impressive convoy of vehicles made its way to Crieff Hydro Hotel in aid of the Erskine Veterans Charity.

The annual event organised by Mark Ryan, founder of Driving Scotland Car Club – gave dozens of Veterans and their families the chance to ride in a vast selection of automotive gems from the Forth Bridges to Knockhill Racing Circuit, before arriving at the iconic Perthshire resort.

More than 40 cars were involved in this year’s procession, including several Ferrari’s Aston Martins, Lotus, Porsche and many other rare and beautiful cars.

Wing Commander Ian Cumming MBE, Chief Executive at Erskine, said: “We are delighted that our Veterans have once again, been invited, to take part in the Supercar Drive. The happy, smiling faces at being chauffeured around in such a dazzling display of classic and supercars are testament to just how special a day this has been.

“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved, especially Bentley Cars Edinburgh, Mark Ryan from Driving Scotland, Stuart Gray from Knockhill and Stephen Leckie, CEO of Crieff Hydro, for sharing their passion for cars with our Veterans. Our extended thanks go to all the drivers, the team at Knockhill Racing Circuit and staff at Crieff Hydro Hotel, your kindness and generosity is much appreciated.”

Stephen Leckie, CEO of Crieff Hydro Hotel, said: “It was our pleasure to welcome back Erskine veterans and their families for what is quickly becoming one of the most exciting motoring events in the Crieff calendar.

“The charity does an incredible job of supporting our military personnel and we are delighted to play a small role in providing a great day out for those who benefit from the service.”

Mark Ryan from Driving Scotland added: “This will be the third occasion where friends from within the Driving Scotland Club and the wider network of friends have come together to deliver a memorable day for our Erskine Veterans. The event recognises the service to our country from all our Erskine veterans, as well as recognising the care and support of the families and staff from Erskine.

A special thanks to Chris MacMurdo and Bentley Edinburgh for again supporting the event, providing a beautiful Bentley to lead the day, and covering all costs for refreshments for everyone throughout the day.

Many thanks also to Stephen Leckie and staff at Crieff Hydro Hotel for warmly welcoming the event and veterans for the second year now and providing such a wonderful back drop to finish off the exciting day.

Also a big thankyou to Stuart Gray and Knockhill Race Circuit in Fife for hosting the event and giving all of the convoy access to the circuit and hospitality on the day. It was really appreciated by all involved.
