A FLEET of Aston Martins are among the star attractions at a classic and performance car show held in the grounds of a historic stately home next month.

Netherby Hall at Longtown, near Carlisle, Cumbria, is set to welcome thousands of car fans to the annual show on August 6 & 7, which features rare and vintage classic cars as well as performance and supercars.

Car enthusiasts will be in awe of the Aston Martin cars supplied by event sponsors Grange Aston Martin Edinburgh, including an Aston Martin Vantage, an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante, an Aston Martin DB11 V12 and an Aston Martin DBX707, the most powerful luxury SUV in the world.

Abbie Deeb, events manager at Netherby Hall, said: “Our annual car show is always an extremely popular event for visitors, with dozens of rare performance and classic cars on show against the fantastic backdrop of Netherby Hall.

"It’s a brilliant atmosphere and an opportunity for people to experience the grounds and gardens of the Hall which are usually closed to visitors apart from special events and to guests staying in our accommodation on-site," she said.
