Motoring enthusiasts got to admire classic vehicles at the inaugural March Raceway Classic Car and Bike Show on Sunday.

The event, held at Westwood School, raised £300 for two charities - FORDS (who look after oval drivers, staff and media unable to work due to injury) and the Chloe Lewis Hand Cycle Appeal.

Westwood pupil Chloe is wheelchair bound and her parents are trying to fund a hand cycle for her.

March Model Car Club chairman Mike Chilvers said: “As chairman I would like to thank all those who supported our first show. We are very appreciative of all those who brought along their vehicles for the general public to view, and to those who came along to see them all, as well as the display of model cars out on by members of the club.

“Additional thanks go to the staff and governors of Westwood School and to Mark, our club treasurer, who was the main organiser along with Kevin our secretary and to all the club members who helped in any way on the day.”

March Model Car Club meets most Friday evenings at Westwood School, apart from August. They race all forms of 1/12 scale radio controlled cars.
