The Norfolk Showground had an impressive array of animals on display for last month’s Royal Norfolk Show but it was horsepower people had come to see this weekend.

Families have descended on the Costessey-based showground today to wonder at the glorious sun-kissed gathering of cars, trucks and bikes old and new which glinted and gleamed in the summer sun.

There was literally something for everyone with classic cars like Austin Sevens and Morris Majors through to note contemporary offerings like Corvettes, Lotus Esprit GT3 and even a Norfolk police-liveried Lotus Evora.

There were also military vehicles, trucks and bikes on show as well as an array of trade stands and food stalls.

The Norwich Star Wars Club were also in attendance to give the show an out of this world feel.

The Wroxham and Hoveton Lions Club -organised car show is an annual charity event with all proceeds from this year’s event going to the East Anglian Air Ambulance and East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH).

Mike Clipston, show organiser, said the Wroxham and Hoveton Lions Club had helped raise more than £58, 000 for charity from previous shows since 2008 and hoped to add to that impressive total this weekend.

He said: “We’re hoping to add to that this year.

“Last year we had around 5,000 people so hopefully we can equal that or exceed it which would be great.”
