A COLLECTION of rare vintage racing cars will be on display later in the month.
And the show will help the British Heart Foundation, too.
The collection of racing cars and memorabilia is being put together by the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain at its headquarters in Ashwell.
The display will celebrate 100 years of motor racing.
Organiser Nicholas Pellet, 62, said he decided to raise money for the charity after he was diagnosed with a heart condition two years ago.
"Having a healthy heart is absolutely essential to racing," he said.
