An autumn celebration of sports cars is being staged in North Yorkshire with organisers expecting a big turnout of car enthusiasts.

Having staged a spring event earlier this year which attracted more than 1,000 sports cars and 5,000 visitors, Sports Cars in the Park returns to Newby Hall on Sunday, September 24.

Organisers are hoping to surpass their previous total of 575 cars on display at last year’s autumn show with exhibits from prestigious marques including Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche.
