LEEDS CASTLE, KENT, 7-8 MAY

More than 20,000 clas­sic fans min­gled in the pic­turesque grounds of Leeds Castle for this two­day event with more than 600 clas­sics on show.

The Jaguars Driv­ers’ Club and the Kent Clas­sic and Sports Car Club brought along the big­gest dis­plays, with each show­ing more than 20 cars. Other star clas­sics in­cluded an un­likely homage to Cars char­ac­ter Light­ning McQueen based on a Hyundai Coupé MkI, and the Bat­mo­bile used in the 1989 film Bat­man Re­turns.

In all, 20 clubs took part in the clas­sic dis­plays, with SELKent Mini Club among those re­port­ing plenty of in­ter­est from show­go­ers.

Paul Burnell, who showed off his 1980 Mini 1275GT on the club’s stand, says: ‘It was a great event. We had a lot of in­ter­est in the cars – and we even man­aged to re­cruit three new mem­bers over the week­end.’ Rachel John­ston
