Motoring enthusiasts young and old are expected to roll into the grounds of Doncaster Deaf Trust on July 3 for the spectacular event which promises to feature more than 400 vehicles.

Nigel Thorley, president of event organisers the Rotary Club of St George’s, said visitors can expect this year’s show to be bigger and better than ever.

He said: “The show has grown in size and stature every year and in 2015 we had over 600 exhibiting classic vehicles, plus 6,000 visitors from the area.

“We raised over £22,000 as all the profits are ploughed back into the local community.

“This year we are increasing the size and content of the event again and already have over 450 vehicles pre-booked but a lot more turn up on the day.”

Alongside all of the automobilia, there will be live music from Darrell and the Krew Kats and The Moonshiners, plus children’s rides, stalls and a whole host of other family friendly entertainment.

There are expected to be hundreds of classic and modern cars, commercial vehicles and bikes on show.

Last year’s spectacular featured a vehicle dating to 1916 right up a modern Lamborghini supercar.
