SUNSHINE helped to draw the crowds to another successful car show.

The 20th Sleaford Historic Car and Motorcycle Show was held at the North Kesteven District Council offices car park on Saturday and attracted an excellent turn-out for the show’s landmark year.

Entrants brought their vehicles to the show from far and wide, with many from the East Midlands and some travelling from further afield, including Chelmsford, Northampton and Birmingham.

More than 100 cars and 60 motorcycles were on show at the event and one of the main attractions was a 1911 Clement Bayard car which had travelled to Belgium for a centenary event at the Ardennes race circuit There was also a modern, limited edition Victory Ness Vegas motorcycle.

Trophies were awarded for first and second places in each of the categories, as well as special memorial trophies given by families of previous supporters of the show. The prize for overall Best in Show was won by a 1969 Ford Capri 1600GT.

As well as classic cars and motorcycles, there was also a range of trade stands run by the show’s sponsors and local businesses, as well as stands promoting voluntary support organisations, including the Lincolnshire 4x4 Response Group and LIVES First Responders.

Mary Sanders, spokesman for the show’s organising committee, said: “Plans are already under way for 2013, with the committee looking to build 
on the success of this year’s show.

“We would like to thank everyone involved in the event and for making the day a fantastic success.”
