HUNDREDS of motoring enthusiasts flocked to admire the array of Porsches, Ferraris, Jaguars and Bentleys that lined Brigg Market Place yesterday for the Lincolnshire Border Club Classic Car Rally.

A record 90 vintage vehicles took part in the event, which saw the line-up of classic cars travel more than 60 miles across the North Lincolnshire countryside.

Event organiser John Savage said the club had been overwhelmed with entries from across the UK.

He said: "This is the 16th year we have hosted the event and this year we had a record number of entries.

"Ninety cars took part and we had such high demand that we eventually had to turn applications down before the event.

"It was wonderful to see so many people supporting the rally and it has become the largest in the area.

"In our first year, we struggled to get nine entries and now we are overwhelmed with them from across the country."

Participants followed a specially devised route, which was only revealed a few minutes before the first car was given the green light.

Mr Savage said: "The drivers travelled to the trolley bus museum in Sandtoft for lunch and then back up to Arties Mill to the finish line.

"Brigg Market Place is a terrific place to have the starting line.

"It has wonderful surroundings and the cars seem to fit in just nicely.

"It is fantastic to see the event is getting bigger and bigger every year."

The event, which was sponsored by TSW Printers, was open to cars manufactured before 1985 and to modern classics built between 1985 and 1995.

The oldest car in the rally was waved off by the checkered flag at 10am, followed by another in date order every minute.

Young car enthusiast Dec- lan Wilks, 10, of Brigg, thoroughly enjoyed the day's event. He said: "It was lots of fun getting to see all of the really old cars up close.

"There were so many to look at, but my favourite was the Mini Cooper.

"I would love to have a car like that when I am older."

The Lincolnshire Border Club meets on the first Wednesday of every month at Arties Mill in Wressel Road, near Brigg.

Its monthly meetings begin at 8pm and new members are always welcome.
