Event co-ordinator Steve Foster, said: “We were very lucky with the weather, I think God must have been smiling on us.

“We held our first scooter rally in Bridlington in 1990 and it’s our big end of year event that everyone looks forward to, maybe it’s something in the water.

“We had some fantastic entertainment at the Spa, with a lot of reggae, northern soul and indie music as well as a performance fromt the The Complete Stone Roses.

“It was great to see all the custom scooters there as well, we had some going for a 50s retro look and some were even steampunk themed. There’s an awful lot you can do with a scooter, lots of panelling that you don’t get on a motorbike.

“I’d like to thank the Spa for looking after us so well.”
