Motoring fans could soon be setting their satnavs to help them get to Bradford for an upcoming event.

The city is set to host one of the north of England's largest free car shows and around 25,000 visitors are expected to attend.

On show will be a number of classic Le Mans 24-hour race vehicles, including models from Aston Martin Racing, Ginetta and Jaguar Heritage.

Attendees will also be able to catch a rare glimpse of a 1970s Monica supercar, which will be on display at the event alongside a range of other classic and performance autos.

Taking place on July 18th and 19th, the Bradford Classic will begin with a screening of the film The Italian Job.

Following the movie, Hazel Collinson - who is the wife of its director and also starred in the production - will give a talk.

Local councillor Kris Hopkins explained the organisers try to improve the show on a yearly basis, to keep drivers pointing their TomToms towards the city.

"Bradford and the surrounding area are famous for manufacturing cars with companies like Jowett and Ginetta," he explained, suggesting this year's event is set to be the best yet.

The Italian Job was remade in 2003, with Mark Wahlberg starring alongside Jason Statham and Ed Norton.
