On a day perfect for motoring, City of Victor Harbor mayor Moira Jenkins welcomed a spectacular array of rare old cars to Victor Harbor in the British Classics Tour on Sunday, May 2.

Hosted by the Fleurieu-based Historic Motor Vehicles Club and celebrating its 9th year, the tour returned to Victor Harbor after an absence of 18 months and staged under a COVIDSafe Plan.

Among the makes of vehicles that took part in the tour were Rolls Royce, MG, Jaguar, Rover, Morris and Wolseley.

The tour started at Encounter Bay Oval, travelling through Goolwa, Middleton and Port Elliot before finishing in Victor Harbor's city centre.

Dr Jenkins presented trophies to owners in a variety of categories in front of a display of more than 100 cars surrounded by bunting on Warland Reserve and the Soldiers Memorial Gardens.

Sections included best saloon, best convertible, best family car, and best motorcycle.

Adding to the era of classic cars, a special award was presented to the best dressed lady and gentleman in 'attire' of the period.

This award was won by Brian and Diana Triplow, who drove their restored 1938 Morris 8/40.
