Visitors were able to view the classic vehicles and have a chat with their owners at the annual event at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

Alex Birtwistle, chairman of the East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club, said: “The event at Sewerby was excellent. It is one of our most popular events and it was a great way to start the new season.

“It is a lovely location with great facilities and we thoroughly enjoy being here each year.

“The public seem to enjoy the event also as we offer such a diverse range of vehicle so there really is something here for everyone.”
