A MEMORIAL cruise in memory of 21-year-old Carl Roe, who was killed in a tragic road accident, was held earlier this month.

More than 300 modified and tuned motors descended on Whitby’s Marina car park for the Carl Roe Memorial Cruise, hosted by Whitby Cruise and Extremebhp.

Convoys from as far away as Preston, Newcastle and Grimsby arrived for the 7.30pm start.

A range of modified metal through to the pure classics were in attendance.

The car park was full up, then with a few spots of rain, some of the earlier arriving cruisers headed out towards town but new convoys arrived and filled the spaces.

North Yorkshire Police’s Roads Policing Team were in attendance with their highly tuned performance vehicles and oversaw the night’s events.

Whitby Cruise had approached the police to be there, and also sought council permission, creating a wholly-legal cruising event.

Organiser Nathan Stuart said: “There were no incidents and it was an exciting atmosphere as a lot of the cruisers hadn’t been to Whitby before.

“Whitby Cruise and Extremebhp would like to thank everyone who attended the event, a special thanks to members of Carl’s family who also attended.

“Also thanks to North Yorkshire Police and Scarborough Borough Council whose involvement allowed it to be a success.”

The next Whitby Cruise event takes place later in the summer.
