CLASSIC and super cars stretched almost as far as the eye could see when thousands descended on Chepstow racecourse for the annual South Wales Motor Show.
The event, in aid of Newport-based St David’s Hospice Care, was sponsored by Motorpoint and St Joseph’s Hospital.
It was first staged last year and was an even bigger success this time around.
Cars, from Ferraris to Trabants, Porsches to Fords and just about everything in between, covered almost the entire public area of the racetrack. And car enthusiasts and spectators could get up close and personal with each of them, even Lamborghinis and other super cars.
A stage provided live music while booths and entertainment delighted families and car enthusiasts from the start at 10:00 a.m. until the end at 4:00 p.m.
Jennie Sim, Head of Sponsorship Events and Charity at Motorpoint, said: “What an amazing turnout at the South Wales Motor Show. Motorpoint Newport were proud to be title sponsor of a such a fantastic event in support of St David’s Hospice Care.”
Stuart Hammond, CEO of St Joseph’s Hospital in Newport, which recently celebrated 75 years since its founding, said: “We were delighted to be sponsoring the motoring festival again this year. The participation of the 500 cars and the support of the people who participated was brilliant.”
Beth Harrington, of St David’s Hospice Care, said: “We have been extremely grateful for the wonderful support we have received from St Joseph’s Hospital and Motorpoint. We are also honored not only by the car owners who have come forward by the hundreds, but also by all the people who rushed to the show from the start, which contributed to making the event such a brilliant success.
“The show featured a dazzling array of vehicles on display as well as bars, street food, a children’s corner, a funfair, live music, entertainment, a VIP area, craft stalls, produce locals and more.It was a great day out, in a fabulous setting, enjoyed by all.”
