150 car cruisers meet in Carlisle

Up to 150 cars descended upon Carlisle in the county’s latest cruising meet.

Look and yearn: A previous Cruise West Cumbria meet in Carlisle

Organised by Cruise West Cumbria, it saw motor fans and their cars travel from as far afield as Silloth, Barrow, Appleby, the Scottish borders, Warrington, Hexham and even Gateshead to be part of the fun.

Although initially set up in west Cumbria in 2003, Cruise West Cumbria quickly spread to encompass the entire county.

The club has its own website, which is dedicated to the county’s ‘cruise culture’ – where car enthusiasts meet to look at and swap tips on the latest changes and modifications they’ve made to their vehicles.

A statement on the site says: “Since its [Cruise West Cumbria] birth, the modifying scene in Cumbria has grown; we have helped to bridge the gap between cruisers and the police, press and council, and are becoming more accepted in the local community.”

The latest event was a welcome return to the city for the cruisers, as they gathered in Town Orchard Dyke car park.

A spokesman for Cumbria police confirmed that they had been made aware of the event on Saturday evening.

“We had one or two complaints of minor offences such as hand brake turns,” he continued, “but otherwise this was an organised meet which passed peacefully and without issue.”
