Then it was the turn of numerous Minis to make their way along the Carfax before lining up in the Bishopric for the day.

It’s not just the cars, though, entertaining the crowds.

There is the Italian Market with a host of goods on sale, plus dough-making classes, and street entertainers.

The fun continues tomorrow with Fiat, Classic Cars, Supercars and Porsche displays, the market and again plenty for the children.
