Organisers of last night’s Motorsport Open Evening at Newtown Motors said it was attended by around 1,500 to 2,000 car fans. The annual event has grown from around 15 cars on display about ten years ago to last night’s show of 80 cars.
Newtown Motors teams up with Cwmbran’s Forresters Car Club. They chose to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. Visitors were able to take a ride in a variety of classic cars and look around the many cars that owners brought along to put on display.
