A SPECTACULAR display of vintage sports cars greeted visitors to the Royal Oak Pub in Much Marcle on New Year's Day.

The VSCC (vintage sports car club) meet at the Royal Oak on the last Thursday of every month and twice a year hold a big rally.

Hannah Slade of the Royal Oak said: "This year we had 133 pre war cars. Fabulous turnout!"

Vintage and historic cars evoke enthusiasm and spark a passion; and since 1934 the Vintage Sports-Car Club has provided an arena for people to enjoy pre-war cars competitively and socially. Active in every aspect of motoring and motorsport for pre-war cars, the VSCC is one of the largest and best regarded motoring clubs in the world.

With such a diverse range of motoring disciplines on offer there is plenty of scope to become involved, whether as a car owner, marshal, competitor or enthusiast.

All are welcome to enjoy the VSCC and its many activities, but why not join this great movement and take advantage of 85 years of history and tradition?
