The Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb circuit was the centre of attention of hundreds of classic car enthusiasts over the weekend, when they took to the slopes to test out the performance of their vintage vehicles.
The track, near Worcester, is considered to be the oldest of its kind in the country, with the Midland Automobile Club Classic being held there because of its heritage and prestige.
The event coincided with National Drive-It Day, which was all about getting those who own classic cars to take them out of the garage and blow out the cobwebs, so that they are actually out and about on the roads as they were intended.
Crowds gathered to see more than 150 classics take on the twisting hill climb route, while there were other attractions to keep visitors entertained, including live music and a hog roast.
Every classic car enthusiast who participated was snapped by a professional photographer as they tackled the course. They were given the photo to commemorate the occasion and were also the recipients of a specially made tour plate.
The classic cars were competing alongside more modern vehicles, so it was an event for those with all tastes in motoring.
