The associated Concours d'Elegance was oversubscribed and sold out, in addition to the 57 motor cars on display with a value in excess of £100 million, there was also the superb military vehicle display, honouring 350 years of the Royal Marines and the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and raising much needed funds through the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
