MOTORING enthusiasts enjoyed the fine weather as a popular annual car show rolled into the town.

The fourth Hampton Ferry Classic Car and Bike Show was held at the Boat Lane site with an array of the best of British cars and bikes from the last 100 years, on Sunday (June 29).

Many exhibitors returned for their second, third and fourth year as motor-mad people turned out from far and wide to take part in the biggest show to date.

Everything from vintage cars, kit cars, military vehicles, modified vans, boy racers, motor bikes and push bikes were all on display.

There was also cause for celebration at the event as long time supporters South West Midlands MX-5 Owners Club came along in what is their 20th anniversary year.

Mike Hatcher won the Vintage car category for his 1934 British Salmson and Tony Eades scooped first place in the Classic section for his 1951 Austin A40.

Both winners got their hands on a pair of Silverstone tickets.

Judge Geoff Smith, who has 50 years experience in the motor trade, said: “I was amazed and delighted to see such a

wonderful and varied selection of vehicles.

“It made my job extremely difficult but it was a pleasure to be involved.”
