More than 250 cars lined the streets of Cleveleys to 
celebrate the town’s annual car show.

Organisers said this year’s event, on Victoria Road West and the Promenade, was bigger and better than ever.

Featuring classics to sports, cars and bikes, there was also a full-sized replica of a Formula 1 car as well as American and special 
vehicles.

A funfair with inflatable slides also featured in 
Jubilee Gardens.

The event attracts visitors from far and wide, with tens of thousands of people reported to be at there this past weekend.

Competitions were held 
including the ‘furthest travelled’ award, which went to Geoff Brown, whose MGB Roadster had travelled all the way from Acklam in Middlesborough; the ‘oldest car’ award, which went to Jim Lovegrove from St Annes who had a 1934 MGPA and the ‘organisers choice’ gong, which went to Gary Watts, from Lytham, who had a 1965 Chevrolet Stingray.

The winners were each given a crystal plaque.

A spokesman for the event’s organising team said: “This is the fourth year that we put on the Cleveleys Car show and it was a fantastic day. There was upwards of 10,000 who turned up and the weather was lovely.

“We start planning this event about 12 months in 
advance so we have the time to publicise it and get all the best cars in, we are already planning now for next year.”

The day was sponsored by Simpsons Skoda, along with a significant contribution to help cover the costs of the day.

The event is organised and run by volunteers.

Meanwhile, the Cleveleys car show has been nominated in the event of the year category in the Radio Wave Culture and Lifestyle awards 2015.
