MONTE CARLO FEVER GRIPS PAISLEY

Thousands of people went car crazy in Paisley tonight as vintage vehicles again took over the town centre for the only UK start leg of the Monte Carlo Classic Rally.

Paisley was hosting one of world motorsport’s most glamorous events for the third year in a row, as the town’s bid for UK City of Culture 2021 gathers pace.

More than 70 classic cars dating back as far as the 1920s gathered outside the iconic backdrop of Paisley Abbey before being flagged over the start ramp by Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall.
Entrants included a 1950s London taxi piloted by a Belgian crew, and a Paisley for UK City of Culture 2021 branded Chrysler Sunbeam driven by a local driver.

IMG_3998w1

Paisley is the largest town in Scotland. The town  has a rich history; from it’s 12th century Cluniac Abbey, it’s world famous Paisley Pattern Shawls, and its position at the forefront of the Thread Industry all of which brought great wealth and prosperity to the Town, enabling it to build it’s inspiring Town Hall, Museum and Art Gallery, Observatory, Schools and numerous fine Churches.

Paisley is surrounded by many historical towns and villages and is also ideally situated as a gateway to the Highlands and Islands, with Loch Lomond only 20 minutes away and Edinburgh a mere 45 minutes, and with the airport within 2 miles of the centre of Paisley, it really is the ideal base for visitors from near and far.
