CARS from across the UK arrived on the Isle of Wight at the weekend for the annual Wight Blat rally of Caterham 7s.

The weekend kicked off with a disco and stay at The Shanklin Hotel on Friday night, before the 166 people in 82 cars drove over to Carisbrooke Castle on Saturday.

Organiser, Alex Moore, said: "The weather was brilliant and everyone really enjoyed themselves. This is our eighth one now, we started off with just 18 cars and it has snowballed from there."

People came from all over the UK, with Caterham 7s turning up from North Wales, the Midlands, and even one car from France.

The rally raised money for Leukaemia Research.
