Saltburn Vintage Car Event

The vintage car event which was organised by Middlesbrough and District Motor Club, proved to be extremely successful when it took place in Saltburn on Sunday.
Crowds gathered down on the beach to watch the main attraction of the day - the world-renowned French-made Darracq racing car - which raced along the beach just like it did when it broke a British record on June 27 1908 after reaching a top speed of 121 mph.
Visitor, Stephen Dowd said, "It is absolutely amazing to see this car race along the Saltburn Sands just like it did over 100 years ago."
