Get your foot on the pedal and your engine revving, it’s time for the best vintage cars to roll into town.

The Hebden Bridge Vintage Vehicle weekend is coming back on August 6 and 7.

There have been more entries than ever.

It attracts visitors from all across the north of England.

Alan Jones from Northowram will be at the event along side his pooch Spike.

They will be showing off his Le Mans type replica racing Bentley.

Graham Pearson of Sowerby Bridge will show his Citroen Maserati which will be one of the fastest cars in the park. In its natural habitat - the road - it can hit a top speed of 147mph.

The car has toured extensively and has been enthusiastically shown at Hebden Bridge for the last seven years.

Original organisers and stalwarts of the show, John and Marilyn Rushworth have entered their 1927 Morris Oxford Tourer and 1939 Buick Drophead Coupe.

Since last year the latter has taken on the Trans Alpine Rally driving through France, Germany, Bavaria, Austria and Switzerland.

It included putting the classic open American touring car through some of the world’s most iconic roads including the Stelvio, voted by Top Gear as the best driving road in the world.

Marilyn said: “Time flies, another year gone – but we will be at Hebden Bridge which we now enjoy more than ever.”

There will be plenty on offer at the event, including stalls, autojumbles and live music.

There are a bigger-than-ever range of places to grab a bite including Indian food, crepes, special teas and coffees, ice creams, hot and cold roast sandwiches.
