Thousands of motor mad members of the public from throughout Northern Ireland turned up at Ballee playing fields recently for the Ballymena Car Fest and truck show.

Visitors to this year’s festival were also treated to the biggest ever ‘Live Action Arena’ in the show’s history with three massive live acts performing - Mattie Griffin Stunt Rider, Savage Skills and the return of high flyers Broke FMX.
