Petrol heads were all revved up at Dewsbury’s Crow Nest Park when they flocked to a classic car rally.

The Yorkshire Thoroughbred Spring Rally is a favourite with owners and visitors alike.

It is staged by the Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club in association with the Friends of Crow Nest Park.

Many of the owners had spent the weekend preparing their vehicles for the run to the park, where they went on display to large crowds.

Visitors admired a range of vehicles and 11 classes were staged. They covered vehicles through the decades, starting pre-war, and also included a special section for buses.

Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club events secretary David Lloyd said up to 150 vehicles were at the show.

“The weather was a bit against us which will have kept the numbers down slightly but we still had a very good turnout.

“We had a good selection of vehicles from pre-war through the decades, and had two or three Americans and some commercial ones as well.”

There were also some vintage motorcycles for visitors to admire.

The car club was formed in 1966 and meets on the third Monday of each month at Horbury Working Members Club in Wakefield.

It stages a number of shows at different venues through the year and will hold its 50th Anniversary Show at Heath Common, Wakefield, in July.
