The three-day Yorkshire Motorsport Festival provided plenty of thrilling action - with a healthy number of visitors enjoying the inaugural event.

There were even a couple of crashes on the Wolfstones Hill Climb on the Sunday afternoon as the festival reached a spectacular conclusion.

Both drivers were quickly out of their cars, apparently unscathed, to receive applause from the crowd - with the safety measures on the course having worked well.

After a wet and miserable start to the festival on Friday, sizeable crowds turned up to enjoy the action amid brighter weather on Saturday and Sunday - although numbers were limited to 4,000 per day due to Covid restrictions.

Several demonstration laps from vintage F1 stock cars proved a hit with spectators, as did the appearance of a number of iconic vintage rally cars.

On the huge showground, festivalgoers were able to view millions of pounds worth of vehicles, including McLarens and Aston Martins.

Dodgems, a sheep shearing demonstration and a stunt show kept families entertained, while a wide range of food and drink stalls did a brisk trade.

Meanwhile, the Yorkshire-made shopping village remained busy throughout the weekend.

The Bradford district was well represented at the event, with JCT600 sponsoring the inaugural festival and having a large display of impressive vehicles on the showground.

Meanwhile, a classic stock car once driven by Silsden's Frankie Wainman Senior was also in action.

A number of drivers remarked on how they had enjoyed the 0.8-mile hillclimb route, held on closed roads between the villages of Upperthong and Wilshaw, with some stating that the camber on one part of the course had provided an extra challenge.

Spectators watched from two main viewing points - one from a hillside looking down on the start line and the other being a field across the road from the main showground.

The county's tourist body, Welcome to Yorkshire, was quick to congratulate organisers on the event.

A Welcome to Yorkshire spokesperson said: "Congratulations to everyone involved in organising the first Yorkshire Motorsport Festival this weekend.

"A stunning location in Holmfirth and exciting classic car racing action."
