More than £100,000 raised for charity

Its quite incredible to think that the support given by all of our visitors, whether spectators, entrants, sponsors and exhibitors across one weekend helped to support 29 local charity projects.

John Biggs, the organiser of the event, said "We're so lucky to receive such amazing support from enthusiasts who enter their cherished cars and motorcycles that help to make the event, our businesses that sponsor or exhibit and of course the thousands of spectators from near and far. A big thank you also to the hundreds of volunteers that give up there time and without whom the event just couldn't take place."

There were record visitor numbers of around 16,500 for the two-day extravaganza of cars, motorcycles and the special festival atmosphere that attracts car enthusiasts and families alike.

Hits of the show

This year we celebrated cars from the 60's with a host of Lotus Cortinas, Astons, Jensens and Lancias amongst many others. Even two Gilberns made the show!

Either side of the sixties display we of course had the mix of veteran, vintage, pre and post wars vehicles as well as historic racers such as the Hudson Super Six and the Fafnir Hall Scott Special. This was all topped off by exotics including the original TVR Sagaris protoype.

The Soapbox event was the biggest yet with 21 teams entered and the initial prizes awarded by Mary Berry on Saturday afternoon.

If that didn't entertain the children then the steam fair which came back bigger and stronger certainly did, providing a beautiful and iconic look to the children's entertainment area.

Whatever your highlight was we hope you had a very enjoyable time with us this year and do tell us about it on our Facebook page.

Looking ahead to 2017

Dates are now set for the 16th and 17th of September and spectator tickets are already available.

We'll be opening the entries for the hill run and classic and club displays in April. Keep and eye out on this web page or better still subscribe to our newsletter.
