A massive convoy of small cars returned to North Devon on Monday as the Legendary Grand Tour of Minis took to the highways and byways once more.
The annual event to money for the Children's Hospice South West set off from Westward Ho! and made its way via Instow, Little Bridge House at Fremington, Barnstaple, Bratton Fleming, Lynton and Combe Martin to Ilfracombe.
Around 250 of the little cars, both old and new versions, honked, bleated, blared and beeped their horns as crowds lined the roads to cheer them on.
The youngest driver to take part in this year's rally, 17-year-old Ryan Beedham from Mortehoe is pictured above with girlfriend Molly Sargent, 16.
