MORE than 200 vehicles and thousands of spectators enjoyed a new vehicle show in Nairn.

A successful debut saw cars, motorcycles and other vehicles taking over the town at Wheels of Nairn on Saturday.

The new, classic and modern vehicle show was organised by Nairn Business Improvement District (BID) and supported by Nairn Rotary Club.

BID chairman Michael Boylan said they were absolutely thrilled and added: “There was a real thirst to be at the event and we managed to accommodate everyone who wanted to be part of it.

“This is our first time handling such an event and no doubt there will be things that we change or work on, but one thing is sure, Wheels of Nairn will return next year.”

The overall winner on the day was Bob Leckie’s Ford Lotus Cortina MK1, while Paul Carter took home the pre-1990 gong for his Ford Zodiac, Dave Ross won the post-1990 entry with his Ford Escort Cosworth and it was a Velocette Venom Clubman brought along by Gordon Williamson which won the motorcycle category.
