More than 500 iconic vehicles will be on show on the Meadows in Stamford for the return of the town’s classic car show.

Now in its 11th year, the car show is set for a record number of entrants when it takes place on Sunday.

The day will begin with a rally of about 20 cars, which will set off from Guyhirn and wind its way through the countryside before arriving on the Meadows.

The cars will join hundreds more ready for a full day’s show from 10am.

There will be food and craft stalls for people to browse and the car owners will be happy to chat about their vehicles.

And this year’s event will be a particularly special occasion. The Stamford and District Round Table, which organises the show, has secured a flypast from the only two remaining Lancaster bombers in the world at 3pm.

Round Table member Olly Wilson said: “This will be our biggest car show ever. We have got a record number of stands with all sorts of food, drink and crafts.”

Among the attractions on offer for visitors will be the famous duck race, with the chance to win £100. But for many people the highlight will undoubtedly be the Lancaster flypast.

Olly said: “It’s really quite a special thing.”

This year the Round Table set itself three main aims for the show. Olly explained: “One is the car show and the spectacle of 500 cars on the Meadows. It’s a great event for the town.

“The second aspect is that we are looking to raise money for local charities. We can’t charge to get on the Meadows so we look for donations. For the exhibitors there is a suggested minimum donation of £5. We are looking for everyone who comes to the show to support us in helping support local charities.

“And the final aspect, which we are trying to push a little more, is looking for new members.”

Olly said the club was open to men aged 18 to 45, and was looking for new members all the time. He added: “It’s an instant group of friends and you give back to the community.”

The Round Table is also looking for people to help marshall on the day. If you would like to help, turn up at 8am on the Meadows and ask for Olly.
