Classic Car Day was a 'Triumph'!

A view of the crowd in the Tuesday Market Place on Classic Car Day 2017

Published: Tuesday, 12th September 2017

Our Classic Car Day was once again a great success, and a fitting end to our summer programme of free events in King's Lynn.

Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, deputy leader and cabinet member for Culture, Heritage and Health, said: "Cars started to arrive from 8am, and at 10am over 200 cars were in place for the public to view. There was an amazing collection of cars; some in perfect condition, and a few still under renovation. Many proud drivers told some interesting stories to the public on the history of their cars. The day was enjoyed by the public as well as the car owners: even the weather was kind and kept dry for everyone".

The winner of the 2017 Les Daubney Car of the Show award, presented by Cllr Nick Daubney, was Chris and Hilary King's 1954 Riley RME.
