MOTORING enthusiasts from around the East Riding revved-up their engines for an annual classic car show held in Pocklington.

Many locals turned up on the day to look at the vintage cars on display.

In total, 76 cars were brought along to the event on West Green by their proud owners, most of whom are members of The East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club, which organises the rally every year. A number of classic bikes were also on show.

Arthur Douglas, who is a member of the club, said: “It went exceptionally well.

“A lot of people came in the area. It was well supported.”

During the day there were stalls, a tombola and a free bus tour of surrounding villages provided by East Yorkshire Services.

Funds raised on the day have been donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind.
