The Durtnell 1944 Austin K4 took part in this year’s Sprat and Winkle Run organized by The Historic Commercial Vehicle Society. The event took place on Sunday 16th October and Geoff Edwards, one of Durtnell’s long service site managers drove the 1944 Austin. The route started in Sevenoaks on the Vestry Road Industrial Estate and finished at the Stade car park in Hastings, taking in Hildenborough, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Eridge Station where there was a quick refreshment stop. Following refreshments the route continued through Boarshead, Crowborough, Buxted, Cross in Hand, Heathfield, Netherfield, St Leonards into Warrior Square and then along the sea front into Hastings.
