A real family atmosphere was enjoyed by everyone for a great Father's Day event. 'Darling Buds of May' show host and arena presenter Paul Mill introduced this unique Coupé as it entered the arena for a solo parade lap followed by an interview with Rich Howlett on the concept and creation of this Concours winning 'Hardtop Coupé'.
28° and blue skies brought together the iconic Spitfire, Hurricane and Messerschmitt with Classics, Sports and Modern Performance cars to entertain the crowds, with ground displays and flypasts throughout the day.
Cambridgeshire's annual Maxey Car Show continues to grow with a packed showground, proving an ever popular event with exhibitors and visitors alike.
The event attracted vehicles from all eras with Classics, Sports, Kitcars, Customs, Americans, 4x4's and Motorcycles. Live music was provided throughout the day by the Collaborators with a fun fair and entertainment for the kids.
Now in it's 13th year supporting local charities, the show culminated with a parade award ceremony and driver interviews with the 'Hardtop Coupé' being presented with an award by the event judges of 2014 Maxey Car Show Winner.
Wow! Booked to capacity weeks before the event, this show promised to be something special.
With a full show ground of exhibitors, trade stands and entertainment it lived up to expectations, with the largest gathering of prestige and iconic cars experienced over the eleven years of the show. Organised by the Stamford Round Table to support local charities, exhibitors and visitors alike donated generously resulting in a record amount raised for the event.
Special thanks go to the Round Table organisers for highlighting British innovation and engineering design with a 'Feature Programme Article' on the Hardtop Coupé development and the project of 'Evolving the Seven'.
A packed programme of air, ground and marquee events over two days saw race cars, sports and classics, with timed sprint events and a parade of GT40's,
single seaters, dragsters, superkarts and race bikes nudging 200mph on the runway sprint strip. Exhibiting displays throughout the event were Lotus, Morgan, TVR and the Concours winning design
of Rich Howlett's Hardtop Coupé development along with Graham Norton's 5.7 Litre Concours Cobra as they took pride of place featuring within the show.
To the skies saw displays on both days by the former Red Arrows pilots 'The Blades' along with aerobatics from the Yakovlevs display team. One of the highlights for many must have been the full flying display by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Great War display team.
Music over the weekend was provided by the five piece harmony group Elle and the Pocket Belles, adding a touch of glamour from Hollywood's Golden Era, with the rock and roll beat of The Hound Dogs and the 60's sensations The Dakotas performing in Hanger One on Saturday night.
