The cavalcade of cars will then make their way to the Northamptonshire circuit where the prestigious trophy - carried in one of the cars - will be kept until its award sometime on Sunday afternoon.

Editor's Note: You can read all about last year's Tour HERE, when we entered a Maserati Quattroporte Executive GT. It was a great day out and much enjoyed by all. We'll be there again (in something nice I trust...) and can thoroughly recommend it.
