Wartime Jeeps, classic Chevrolet Corvettes and a Lamborghini were just some of the vehicles on display at the Bungay Lions’ classic vehicle rally.

The popular annual event, now in its third year, attracted around 350 vehicles, from car enthusiasts who tour around the country to first timers.

Thousands of people attended the event, enjoying the range of British cars dating from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, old lorries, classic American cars and more than 30 tractors.

“It started off quite slow because of the weather but a lot of people still turned out,” said Michael Gardiner, president of the Bungay Lions.

“A lot of new people have come this year and it’s been a success again - this is only our third year so we’re still in our infancy.”

While walking around the rally, held on the grounds of the 15th century Earsham Hall, people were entertained by music from the Taverham Band and Air Mail, a Shadows tribute band.

All profits from the event will be donated to the Beccles and Bungay Area Community Transport, which provides transport for people to whom public transport is not easily available.

“We’re hoping to have raised a good amount,” added Mr Gardiner. “And we’re aiming to hold the rally again next year.”
