Despite the cold weather, it stayed dry for the car show put on by Lewis Car Club at Creed Park on Saturday October 8.

A great selection of old classics, modern sports cars and other unusual vehicles as well as a great range of newer and classic motorbikes. People of all ages turned out either to show their pride and joy or just to come and look enviously at what was on show.

Lewis Car Club has been around since the mid-1970s when a group of self-admitted boy racers decided to take their revving engines away from the srets of Stornoway and on to more secluded spaces where fewer (including the police) would complain.

One of them is still an active and keen club member – Malcolm 'Kiwi' Macleod. 

Autocross events took place on Barvas Machair, Bennadrove, and at Stornoway Airport and other places.

In 1999, the Club, with the Stornoway Trust, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and roads contractor Bardon Hebrides, developed a site near Creed Park recycling centre. It has since put on motorsport days with karts and the Supercar Rides were the first time road cars had used the tight and twisty karting circuit.

Visitors paid to do the course in high-end sports cars with proceeds going to Bethesda Nursing Home & Hospice and the Hebrides Alpha project. There have been many other charitable events and as well as being part of the annual Hebrides Rally event which attracted entrants from far afield for about 10 years.

Journalist Iain Maciver put on his helmet, goggles and scarf to have a chat with some of the club's personalities. See interviews here.
