Sunday saw the sixth annual Frankie's Classic car and Bike festival, it was held at the Ford Technical centre in Basildon, Essex. It was also the 15th anniversary of the Ford Focus RS which has already turned in to a cult classic among enthusiasts...
The Frankie's car and bike festival was in aid of Saint Francis' Hospice, a local charity that helps people from all walks of life. My friend Alan Mason has organised the event since it started back in 2012 and I can't think of many better ways to spend a Sunday morning. To celebrate the 15th Ford Focus RS anniversary over 200 cars turned up, all in a sea of imperial blue metallic, with only 4501 examples produced this made the turn out even more impressive.

Among all of the classic and modern Fords were also other iconic cars, these included American muscle cars, Alfa Romeos, BMW's and a mix of bikes. The days entertainment was provided by a mix of bands, raffles, car parts and accessories and food stalls. The total raised on the day was in excess of £18,500 which brings the total over £100,000 since the show started.
