  2. The 15th Annual Serpentine Charity Run Presented by the Cheshire Lotus Owners Group and The Lotus Drivers Club Sunday the 28th June 2020 Open to all types of classic cars, sports cars and classic motorbikes the event will start from 9:30am from the historic Devonshire Dome (Devonshire Road, Buxton, Derbyshire. SK17 6RY) and involve a route though the Peak District National Park and some of the UK’s most beautiful scenery. Entrants will be given their route maps at the registration point and from where they will also be started at regular intervals. The start point allows for the use of the cafeteria and facilities and alongside the refreshments (free tea and coffee) there will be bacon sandwiches available to purchase at a small cost. The journey will be approximately 100miles and will involve several stops at places of interest as well as stops for refreshments, pub lunch, picnic etc and will culminate in a display of all the cars at the finish line in one of the Peak Districts historic locations (it’s a secret until you get there) around mid-afternoon. This is not a race and the planned journey time though the Peak District is to be around 4 hours to allow you to enjoy the scenery, stop for lunch or a picnic as well as enjoy your driving experience. Please feel free to use the attached entry form Serpentine Run 2020.pdf
