Also on the programme were Historic F1 cars from the 1970s - 1980s, Historic Sports Cars, Group C and a number of other classes.
According to an event release, there were 11 races and two dynamic demonstrations featuring cars spanning the past century, from standout single-seaters to title-winning tin-tops and giant-killing GTs featured at the event.
The on-track thrills ‘n’ spills were enjoyed by a record single-day crowd, putting the event well on-track to break through the 10 000 barrier over the weekend for the first time in its quarter-century history, says event organisers.
The racing was complemented by a wide array of off-track entertainment including a sensational Spitfire aerial display – to commemorate the 75th year since the Battle of Britain – the JET Village Green, Adrenaline Zone, Giant Wheel, ever-popular 2CV Tin Snail Challenge and a headlining evening set from rock legends Status Quo.
