PETROL-HEADS have enjoyed a weekend of vintage motor displays featuring a vast range of classic vehicles at Uttoxeter Racecourse.
The event took place during the weekend and saw hundreds of people attend from across the country.
Around 100 models were booked in for display from collectors’ clubs and individual vintage vehicle enthusiasts.
Those entering a display included the Potteries Capri Club, North Baam Classic Car Club and the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club.
Around 80 entries from private collectors saw a range of popular manufacturers represented at the Wood Lane venue.
They included Triumph, MG, Ford, Singer, Buick, Vauxhall and Austin.
Exhibits also extended to vehicles of the two-wheeled variety, with classic bikes made by BSA, Norton and Matchless among the ‘hogs’ brought out for display.
Expert commentary kept show-goers informed of developments and gave information about the models.
Elsewhere at the event, motorists made the most of trade and ‘autojumble’ stands, where they could purchase parts and spares for their own vintage vehicles.
A racecourse spokesman said: “This was an absolutely fantastic event and it’s great we can provide entertainment for such a niche market at our venue.
“The turnstiles were busy all day and there was a constant flow of people coming in to enjoy a fantastic spectacle.
“We’ll certainly be more than happy to have this event again in future years as it was a top display of some very impressive vehicles and attracted hundreds of visitors.”
The event was put on by Classic Vehicle Events, which has staged its shows at racecourses across the UK.
