Classics galore at castle extravaganza (1 of 5)

AN astonishing array of classic cars attracted thousands of visitors to Sherborne Castle in Dorset on Sunday.

The annual ‘Classics at the Castle’ event has become a fixture on the motoring enthusiast’s calendar for the past 11 years and this year’s event may just have been the best yet.

After the previous day’s thunderstorms, the weather on Sunday was as perfect as the venue in the grounds of the historic castle and delighted organisers reckoned there were 1,000-plus vehicles for visitors to admire.

The show, sponsored by Heritage Insurance, was a not-for-profit event in aid of Prostate Cancer UK and Parkinson’s UK.

It was billed as the premier classics and supercar show in the south-west and the turnout certainly did not disappoint.

There were vehicles from almost every age of motoring and every type of car imaginable, from the most humble runabouts to the most spectacular supercars.

Numerous motor club stands featured members’ vehicles, and there were trade stands, autojumble stalls and even a display of model cars. Sherborne-based auctioneers Charterhouse conducted a classic car sale in an adjacent marquee.
