We were delighted and surprised at the genuine interest shown by the public.” “Lots of families attended and the younger children were thrilled to get looking at the motorcycle and tractor. We also received hundreds of questions around speed limits, drink driving and modifying cars, to name a few.” He added, “The event was a real success and we are looking forward to taking part in similar events in the future.”
