Millions of pounds worth of cars have been turning heads during the annual classic and supercar event, which took place on Thursday and Friday at the Hoste hotel and Beauty Spa in Burnham Market.

It marked the ninth year for the event, which attracts more than 30 of Britain’s rarest classic cars as well as unique supercars. They are estimated to be worth a total of £20m and include well-known brands such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ferrari and Aston Martin.

On Friday prizes were presented in numerous categories, including Best Pre-War Classic, Best Modern Sports Car and Best Modern Saloon and Coupe.

Brendan Hopkins, owner of The Hoste, called the event a “one of a kind experience” for car enthusiasts around the world and said he is “delighted” to put so many cars on display.
