The Alton Classic Car Show is taking place in Alton town centre today.

Organised by Alton Lions Club, it is bringing all the glamour and razzmatazz of motorsport to the town centre supported by a market, a display of electric vehicles, live music and on-street family entertainment.

Alongside a diverse and impressive range of classic vehicles there are exhibits showcasing Formula 2 and Formula 3 racing cars, plus Austin Healey 3000s, Camberley Kart Club, Tongham Car Club’s Racing Bangers, Nija Karts for children, and racing bikes.

Road closures until 6pm are covering the High Street, from its junction with Church Street to the Drayman’s Way entrance to the Lady Place Car Park, plus Market Street, Market Square, Turk Street and Cross & Pillory Lane.

Some of the classic cars are taking part in a pre-show rally before arriving in the town centre to join the classic car show, which is open to visitors from 10am to 4pm.

All exhibitors have received a welcome pack donated by the event’s primary sponsor The Little Grey Cells and other local businesses.

Vehicles are being entered into their appropriate judging classes.

As well as trophies for each class of vehicle, a Special Package is being awarded to the Best in Show.

Any profits from the show will support the charity Young Lives vs Cancer.
