First Class Technologies, based on Britannia Enterprise Park in Lichfield, is sponsoring the Cannock Chase Classic Car Tour for a second year.

Over 100 vehicles will be taking to the roads on Sunday 25th June 2023 to help raise money for The Community Foundation for Staffordshire, organised by Wolverhampton & Staffordshire Car Club.

The informal convoy (touring assembly) will enjoy a 100-mile route, starting in Lichfield, visiting places of historical and local interest around the greater area of Cannock Chase.

Drivers have entered from across the UK with a wide range of vehicles, including some historic and modern classics and a couple of American muscle cars. Many famous British marques are represented including Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Jensen, Lotus, Bristol, Rover, Triumph, MG to specials like Mini Moke and a great selection of foreign makes such as Porsche, BMW, Opel, Lancia, Renault, Citroen, Fiat, Mazda, including a rare German Borgward and Lancia Stratos replica.

Crews run with associated interest groups, culminating at the finish Bishton Hall, Wolseley Bridge, Rugeley where notes can be compared between crews whilst spectators can view the fabulous cars on show. A static display of cars will be on view from midday onwards with the convoy of tour vehicles arriving after 1:30 pm. Public entry is £2 per car.

A spokesperson for Wolverhampton & Staffordshire Car Club says: “It’s a chance to get cherished vehicles out of the garage for a day and enjoy an organised drive around the greater Chase. We’ve been delighted by the response from classic car owners, as we’ve had over 100 cars enter so far! It will be a great day out. In 2021 the car tour had 70 entrants and raised over £1,000 for the Staffordshire charity.”

Based in Stafford, The Community Foundation for Staffordshire is an organisation which creates and administers benevolent funds and grant giving schemes for philanthropists, business, central Government, and local authorities, which gives away over £1m every year to voluntary organisations and charities.

Faye Williams of the Community Foundation for Staffordshire said: “It was an amazing spectacle to see so many beautiful cars entered in 2021. We’re grateful to Richard Hinton of First Class Technologies for coming up with the idea, sponsoring and organising this and other events for us.”

Richard Hinton says: “We’re delighted to sponsor the event for the second year running, to raise money for a very worthwhile local charity.”
