Motor enthusiasts from throughout the region are set to gather in Skegness for the Josh Booth Memorial Meet tomorrow (Saturday October 3).

The rally will remember Josh, from Alford, who tragically died last year, aged 22, in a traffic accident.

Taking place at the Festival Car Park, near the RNLI station, the meet has been organised by Mad Motorz club, which Josh co-founded with his friend Danny Hancock.

Car clubs from across the East Midlands are expected to attend the rally which is promoting road safety.

The event has been organised with the support of the police and East Lindsey District Council.

Funds raised on the night will be donated to Brake road safety charity.

Family and friends will be releasing balloons in memory of Josh during the course of the evening.

Josh’s friend and Danny’s partner Laura Jackson said: “Josh was a cheeky and happy person who was into anything that had wheels and a motor. He was a really nice lad and I cannot say a bad word against him.

She added: “We are celebrating Josh’s life at the same time as raising awareness of road safety.

“The night is not just for car and bike enthusiasts, but anyone who wants to come along to join us and support the cause.”

The meet starts 6pm and will be attended by representatives from the Institute of Advanced Motorists and feature the 2fast2soon crash simulator crash simulator
