The 10th anniversary of the Truck Show at Orwell Crossing Lorry Park beside the A14 in Nacton saw its biggest ever turnout on Sunday.
More than 500 spectators came to indulge in a family day celebrating some of the finest trucks and lorries in the region.
Enthusiastic truck drivers washed, polished and buffed their vehicles for the day’s display, with trophies handed out in a variety of categories across different classes, ages and manufacturers for the finest efforts.
Simon Waspe, who organised the event alongside Dani Harvey, said: “It’s been very good, and the biggest we have ever done.
“We had 123 trucks which is the most we have ever had, and in our 10th year too.

“Everyone looked happy and you wouldn’t believe the standard, money and time and effort people have spent on their trucks.”
As well as the gathering of trucks, the day also featured face painting, raffle, bouncy castles and other children’s games to keep the event as family-friendly as possible.

Mr Waspe added: “It’s like a little intimate club. We have had a chap come from as far as Wales but we are trying to keep it as a little club mostly from Norfolk and Suffolk.
“It’s the people and their children that make it – we have had a baby from six weeks to pensioners, so this event is definitely about people.”
