CLASSIC car buffs will be in for a treat on New Year’s Day.

Newport Pagnell will be over-run with 60 vintage autos and scooters as part of charity event The First Run, starting from the Aston Martin works and organised by Magic of Motoring – Shell Oil’s heritage brand guardians – and Classic Porsche specialist Export 56.

Organiser Mike Pacey said: “My plan is to make this an annual event that grows in profile and I will be encouraging participants to dress in period. Prizes will be given for the best dressed car and team. I’m also pretty sure there will be two celebrity drivers.”

The event kicks off at 9am on New Year’s Day.
