Pictures show: Rotary’s Classic Car show at Buckingham Beer Festival

During this year’s Buckingham Beer Festival for the first time ever organisers produced a classic car show to accompany the festivities.

On Saturday 9 July, 85 vehicles were displayed for Buckingham Rotary Club’s first vintage car show.

The retro vehicle showcase was just one part of the 10th anniversary celebrations at this year’s beer festival.

Over 4,000 punters descended on Buckingham Rugby Club on Friday and Saturday to witness live music from local acts and pick from 42 different ales and 12 ciders.

Buckingham Rotary Club asked for classic, or even ‘interesting’, vehicles to put forward for the show.

Among the highlights were a couple of stunning Ferraris, a speedy Sierra Cosworth, a charming 2CV, a couple of vintage US military vehicles and even one 90-year-old car.

Money raised from the event was split between local charities including Buckingham and Winslow Young Carers, as well as Buckingham Rugby Club.

A spokesperson for the rotary club said: “Thank you to all who took part and who helped, and to the rugby club.”

Next year’s festival will be a two-day extravaganza taking place on Friday 7 July and Saturday 8 July.
