To celebrate 30 years of Back to the Future, a time-travelling DeLorean DMC-12, just like the one in the film is coming to the Borders.

On Sunday, June 7, the car will arrive as guest of honour at Border Vintage Automobile Club’s (BVAC) Motoring Extravaganza at Thirlestane Castle, Lauder. The event will be made even more special with the appearance of Doc ‘Emmett’ Brown and Marty McFly, courtesy of professional actors Calum MacAskill (Doc) and Stanley Pattison (Marty) from Edinburgh-based charity Hearts and Minds. Fans of the film will remember that in Back to the Future II, Doc and Marty travelled to the year 2015 from Hill Valley, California, way back in 1985!

In readiness for the Extravaganza, ‘Doc’ and ‘Marty’ had great fun at Thirlestane recreating some iconic poses from the films. They are shown with a rare right-hand drive DeLorean which will also be coming to the event.
