Enthusiasts could see classic and vintage cars with some racing up the hill-climb track, which was improved and extended for the 2013 event.

The festival, now in its third year, was the brainchild of BBC Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans, who chose Erasure, Kaiser Chiefs and Jamie Cullum to headline the three nights of music.

The festival was held at Laverstoke Park Farm, owned by former Formula 1 champion Jody Scheckter. The 64-year-old South African was the drivers' champion in 1979.

CarFest helped raise £1.1m in 2013 for BBC Children in Need. The charity supports more than 2,600 projects for children with disabilities or disorders or who are living in poverty or suffering from abuse or neglect.

The event featured air displays by the Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the RAF Red Devils parachute team.

Starting line

The 24,000-capacity festival sold out weeks in advance. CarFest North took place at Oulton Park, Cheshire, earlier this month.
