Heritage vehicle fans watch at strategic points along the route to wave them as they pass, while others enjoy the gathering at the end of the route to browse cars and stalls.

The rally run begins and ends in Somers Road car park in Wisbech, with the vehicles heading off to Peterborough via Long Sutton and Market Deeping then returning for the popular afternoon static show via Whittlesey, Coates and Wisbech St Mary.

Vintage vehicle owners travel from far and wide to take part, including a regular who makes the trip up from Oxford every year to get involved.

All money raised from the day is given out to local charities including the air ambulance, at the end of the year.

It is hoped that the latest day will match last year’s total of more than £1,000.
