More than £20 million-worth of exotic cars replaced the planes and helicopters at a High Wycombe airfield on Saturday as they roared down the runway in a first-of-its-kind event in the town.

The purr of high performance vehicles rang out across Booker on Saturday, August 4, as the Rotary Club of High Wycombe hosted the unique car event called Sound of Speed at Wycombe Air Park.

Crowds were entertained as Tesla, Porsche, Aston Martin and Ferrari drivers sped down the 740 metre runway.

The exhilarating event was opened by rally driving legend Paddy Hopkirk before the mayor of High Wycombe, Cllr Sarfaraz Khan Raja got into the passenger seat of an Austin Healey for a trip down the runway.

Wycombe Wanderers' Gareth Ainsworth and Andrew Howard also took part in the day ahead of the Chairboys' meeting with Blackpool at Adams Park, with Gareth showcasing his Mustang, while sporting director Andrew drove his Aston Martin down the runway.

The unique event was organised by the rotary club in a bid to raise funds for Thames Valley Air Ambulance and other Rotary charities in the area.
