The Exmouth Classic Vehicle Gathering returns to the Imperial Recreation Ground on Sunday, August 18.

Around 200 cars will take part in the event, now in its 16th year, organised by the Morris Minor Owners Club Devon Branch.

The Exmouth Classic Vehicle Gathering organisers will be looking to collect donations for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

Since 2010 the event has raised more than £7,500 for the charity.

Entry for the gathering is relaxed, with no time set for when exhibitors should turn up or charge for taking part.

Organisers do not want to discourage those with cars less than 20 years old from entering.

Spokesman Nickie Tilley said: "Many vehicle exhibitors comment on how much they enjoy the show's informal feel and the fact they can turn up and depart when they want to."
