THE lucky winner of our recent Festival of Motoring competition enjoyed a truly vintage day out at the BVAC Classic at Thirlestane on Sunday.

Gordon Sanderson, and his son in law Derek Allison, both from Peebles, started their VIP day by receiving a goody bag from BVAC chairman David Pratt.

The bag contained an array of motoring memorabilia, including a special commemorative Jim Clark book with signed photos by racing legends Dario Franchitti and Allan McNish.

The lucky duo were then driven around the Borders countryside in a 40-year-old Karmann Cabriolet Beetle, with owner Sarah Forbes from Edinburgh, before being dropped off for lunch at the Firebrick Brasserie in Lauder.

Gordon then had the afternoon to soak up the show with Derek and his daughters, Pauline and Julie.

Sunday’s large crowds enjoyed the spectacle of seeing a record-breaking 1,500 vintage and classic vehicles on display.

And stunt rider Flyin’ Ryan was in action leaping over some of the exhibits on his motorbike.

The show certainly brought back many happy memories for motoring enthusiast Gordon, which included when he bought his first ever motor car, a 1937 Austin.
