Organisers of Sunday’s Stamford Round Table Car Show said it was a record event in “so many ways”.
The 11th annual car show began with a rally of 20 cars, which made its way through the countryside before the show kicked off on The Meadows, where 540 vehicles were lined up.
Thousands of people made the most of the sunny weather to see the cars on display, chat to their owners and get ready for the highlight of the event - a flypast from the two Lancaster bombers, which drew huge crowds.
The show is organised annually by volunteers from Stamford Round Table, who work hard to put on a free event for people in the town, as well as raise funds for good causes in the community.
This year’s event raised about £7,000 - an increase of a third on previous years.
Round Table member Olly Wilson said: “It was a record show in so many ways - from the number of cars on display, to the number of visitors to the amount we raised.
“Everyone was particularly excited by the Lancaster flypast and there were big cheers for that. It was arguably the best show we’ve ever had and the weather and the flypast definitely played a part in that.
“I think people enjoy it because it’s such a friendly and relaxed show.”
Organisers worked particularly hard this year to improve access on and off The Meadows for car owners; to categorise cars in a more efficient way and for an improved programme, which all paid off.
The show couldn’t have happened without the support of sponsors, including Robert Loomes, Gladstone Carriages, Rosedale Property Specialists, Woolies of Market Deeping, Sycamore BMW and West Street Garage.
Olly also thanked the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and St John Ambulance, who were “there on the day but thankfully had nothing to do”.
