"It is the first time we have run this event here and it has been a very strong start.

"We've been blessed with sun and we've had a fantastic response from car owners. We've had a thousand cars."

"We knew we were onto a big thing, but the scale in terms of how big it has been and the amount of content has exceeded our expectations."

The success means Matthew is already looking forward to next year's event.
