PETROLHEADS were treated to a surprise flypast at an annual car show.

The Stamford and District Round Table held its eighth charity car show on the Meadows in Stamford on Sunday.

More than 450 cars were on show, ranging from classic pre-war models to modern day sports cars.

Last year’s Round Table chairman Jim Coulam said: “The region’s premier car show event is free to enter not only for the public, but also for the entrants who just need to register before the day.

“Through generous donations and our loyal sponsors, the day raised more than £5,000 that will be distributed back to the local community around Stamford over the next 12 months.

“The weather stayed reasonably kind for the 6,000 plus visitors who were treated to a flypast not only from the Lancaster, but also the Vulcan that made a surprise visit.”

The show also featured the famous duck race on the mill stream.

On the day of the show drivers had the opportunity to enjoy a drive around the countryside of Stamford and Rutland.

They then arrived at the Meadows for reserved parking at the show.

Framed photographs of driver and car were taken at the start of the drive and delivered at the end.

The Round Table is a group for men aged between 18 and 45.

The group regularly meets on a social basis and also organise the yearly car show.

All funds raised go to good causes in the Stamford area.
