Motoring enthusiasts flocked to Elgin’s Cooper park yesterday to enjoy another fun filled Motorfun event.
A cloudy but warm and humid day contributed to the good turnout with more than 5,000 coming along to enjoy the activities, displays, stalls and live music.
The event began with Elgin & District Pipe Band marching into the main ring.
Early entertainment was provided by the ever popular Fochabers Fiddlers followed by Moray Tribal Dance.
The event is organised by Elgin Rotary Club and is their way of saying a big thank you to the local community for the support they give to the Rotary fundraising team throughout the year.
Rotarian Sandy Ritchie said: “The crowds were even larger than last year.
“The good weather played a part and all those attending seemed to enjoy the whole event.
“Queues formed at all the catering outlets and at the main attractions.
“There were vintage car and classic motor bikes on show for the enthusiasts to enjoy and those who fancied the more modern car were treated to the Show n’ Shine display.
“There was a number of new car dealers with 100’s of new cars on show
Among the 25 charity stalls was team RAFBF Lossiemouth, raising funds for the RAF Benevolent Fund.
Eight teams competed in the It’s a Knockout with Weir Black Belt Academy/Dallas designs crowned the winners.
Motorfun is held every two years and is the biggest annual event organised by the Rotary Club of Elgin. It alternates with the group’s Marafun.
The event this year was also tinged with sadness following the recent death of Brodie Ross who was a key member of Elgin Rotary Club and part of the organising committee.
