HUNDREDS of elaborately-decorated trucks rolled into the Three Counties Showground, near Malvern, at the weekend for Truckfest South West and Wales.

And organisers say the event, which attracted thousand of petrol-heads from across the region, was a great success.

Among the stars of the show were Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan and US TV stars Ron and Amy Shirley from the hit show Lizard Lick Towing.

Bob Limming, of Live Promotions, which puts on Truckfest shows across the country, said: "Michelle and the Lizard Lick people were all fantastic, and wowed the crowds, spending a lot of time talking to them.

"For Lizard Lick, it was their first appearance in the UK, and so we're really pleased that they made their debut at our show in Malvern."

Among the other attractions were the Monster Trucks Numbers 17, and 10, from the UK and the USA respectively , going head-to-head in the main arena, and thrills and spills from the Broke FMX stunt bike team.

And the show also boasted nearly 800 trucks, including a substantial presence from cult hauliers Eddie Stobart, plus plenty of fairground attractions for the youngsters, and hits songs on the Saturday night party with covers band The 80s Project.

Mr Limming said: "The weather was a bit worrying on Saturday, with the rain early in the morning, and a misty start to the day, but it turned into a great weekend.

"We love coming to Malvern because the showground is such a spectacular setting, with the backdrop of the Hills, and the Three Counties Agricultural Society are a great bunch of people, so we're really looking forward to returning in 2015."
