Kit cars gather in Beer
KIT car fans met in Beer on Sunday. The nearest meeting place for the car enthusiasts currently is in Kent, so Bill Goodey, of Seaton, decided to stage something closer to home – at Pecorama.
The model railway-themed tourist attraction gave complimentary tickets to the site to everyone who turned up for the event, along with free tea and coffee.
Bill said: “It meant there was something for the ladies to do, as opposed to be stuck in the middle of a field.”
Around 20 people brought their cars along, double the anticipated attendance, which gave Bill hope for it becoming an annual event.
“There was a nice mixture of vehicles. We kept a record of those who came and with the Pecorama management’s consent are hopefully going to grow it as an event.”

Pecorama’s tourism manager Mark Ridgers said: “We were pleased to provide the venue. These inaugural events are always hard to gague, especially when they aren’t run by an organised club, but it went well. It brings people in who might not have heard of us before, and if they like it here they will come back, which is great.”
