Staff from Comet, Crow and WHT publisher Archant’s Herts and Cambs Motors team manned a special marquee to mark the first year of our partnership with the Classic Motor Show, under the banner of the Hertforshire Motor Show 2016.

The team met some of the thousands of visitors, car club members and dealers at the event, which saw classic cars from across the last century to brand new 66 plates hot off the production lines, park up in the grounds.

Motors on show included classic Alfa Romeos, Infinitis, Citroens, Vauxhalls and Fords.

Enthusiasts travelled from all over the UK to attend.

Visitors were entertained during both days by experienced commentator Brian Page who made a welcome return to the show.

The arena hosted a series of parades and interviews and there were plenty of activities for families, with entry to the Knebworth Fort and Gardens included in the admission price.
