HUNDREDS of gleaming modified 'street cars’ are expected at an Isle of Wight rally.
UK Street Cars Isle of Wight Takeover comes to the County Showground, Northwood, this weekend.
Organisers say they have already received confirmation that more than 575 cars will be driven to the Island event, including some very highly modified vehicles whose owners have spent more than £50,000 on them.
They are keen to emphasise safety credentials and say no dangerous driving will be tolerated either at the site or on the Cruise the Isle drive out on the Sunday.
At Northwood, the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service will be putting on a display of what happens in a car crash and bringing along a crash simulator too.
There will also be a static display from the Supercharged Outlaws and the Isle of Wight Mudrunners 4x4 group.
Trophies will be awarded for the best cars in different categories.
