A supercar rally has raised more than £1,000 for three good causes.

The 30 souped-up vehicles hit the North East 250 as part of the Cannonbawz Run event.

This is the second year the rally has been held, taking cars out to Speyside, the Cairngorms, Royal Deeside, Aberdeen, the east coast and the Moray Firth.

Cannonbawz Run is held in aid of the Marfan Association, Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance and the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The tour began at Ballindalloch Castle on Sunday before taking in stops at the Lecht, Braemar Castle, Tor Na Coille Hotel in Banchory, the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in Fraserburgh, Banff Springs Hotel and Stew n’Drews ice cream shop in Buckie.

Orgainser Kris O’ Neill said the charities were chosen in recognition of the work they do in the north-east – particularly the Marfan Association, which has supported his brother Liam.

He said: “We all had a great time discovering the incredible roads and views the road has to offer, raising nearly £1,000 for our chosen charities.”
