More than 100 classic cars – including a 1939 MG TB – will take a scenic route to Ely for the 15th annual Snowdrop Run.
The vintage vehicle event, organised by the Cambridge and District MG Owners' Club, will start at Melbourn and travel through Cambridgeshire, finishing at Palace Green on Saturday February 15.
The oldest car booked to date is a 1939 MG TB and there will be many MGs and a few non-MGs from the 40s, 50s, 60 and 70s.
Cars will arrive at Melbourn from 8.30am, and their owners and co-drivers will sign in at the school hall for a light breakfast.
Cars will start to leave from around 9.30 and arrive in Ely from late morning.

The Snowdrop Run was initially held in its current form in 2006, after what started as a one-off meet up the previous year turned out to be a great success.
