More than 150 classic cars, vans and trucks were present in Brackley on Sunday for the second Classic Vehicles In The Park event.

Despite the wet weather, the number of vehicles on display was double the amount enjoyed by crowds at last year’s inaugural event.

About £1,000 was also raised for the chosen charities of Town Mayor Councillor Jim Broomfield, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and Katharine House Hospice.

Towcester-based classic car insurers Hagerty helped sponsor the event, and were at the show displaying some of their staff’s classic cars and on hand to discuss any individual vehicle insurance needs.

Despite the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team car not 
being on display this year, 
they also helped raise funds for the nominated charities by donating a box of goodies to sell on the day.

Tea and cakes were provided by Girl Guiding groups and a full barbecue organised by Brackley Butchers.
