Cruise West Cumbria meeting hailed as 'great night'

A convoy of car fans cruised across Cumbria as part of a 10th anniversary gathering.

Dozens of petrol-heads polished their spoilers and got their exhausts sparkling ahead of two parades of motors leaving Carlisle’s Kingstown Industrial Estate and Aspatria.

People from across the county, the north east, Lancashire and Scotland took part in the get-together at the Central Station car park in Workington on Saturday night.

It was the latest event organised by Cruise West Cumbria, which describes itself as helping to bridge the gap between so-called cruisers, the police, media and authorities.

The car club is marking its 10th anniversary and motorists had gathered at Kingstown to meet and check out each other’s cars and engines before heading into west Cumbria.

Bonnets were popped up to get a look inside and alloys glinted in the evening sunlight. Organisers said they stayed in touch with police throughout the night.

A spokesman said it was a “great night”, adding: “We thought it went really well.

“It was good to see a lot of old faces. People came from all parts of the country.”

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