Rod Spollen, the Chateau’s managing director, said he had been overwhelmed by the fantastic feedback he had received from visitors and competitors.

“From the first event in 2015, we set out to create an event which consistently exceeded expectations, year after year,” he added.

More than 200 pre-1967 cars took part in the racing and motorbikes took on the course for the first time.

The 100th anniversary of Bentley Motors and the 60th anniversary of the iconic Mini were also celebrated and there were flypasts by a Lancaster Bomber on Saturday and Sunday.
