FASHION model David Gandy was among the celebrities who attended a car show in Oxfordshire over the weekend, despite the torrential rain.

Mr Gandy, known for his work as a Dolce&Gabbana and M&S model, was joined by actress Emily Atack known for her role in the E4 comedy series The Inbetweeners and Polar explorer Ben Saunders.

The three attended the inaugural Mollie’s Miglia at Mollie’s Motel and Diner in Buckland.

The event was the first of what will become a regular experience throughout the year, inspired by Italy’s iconic ‘Millie Miglia’ – a motorsport endurance race undertaken in classic cars.

The event was hosted in partnership with The Gentleman Racer and it boasted a number of rare vintage vehicles, race cars and motorbikes that visitors had the chance to try out.

Mollie’s Miglia started at the Bremont Watches Headquarters in Henley-on-Thames and covered a 70 mile stretch to Buckland.

Cars that featured in the programme included a CD Aston Martin Vanquish 25, Lamborghini Performante and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

The famous fashion model, who is originally from Essex, tried his luck in a Jaguar F-Pace SVR while The Inbetweeners’ star Ms Atack drove a Morgan Aero 4.

Tom Howard, founder and CCO of The Gentleman Racer, shared photos from the event and commented on the success: “It is safe to say that the cars taking part in the Mollie’s Miglia were pretty varied.

“Great company, dirty cars, and not one ego in sight.”

Mr Howard added that the car show was ‘refreshing’ and promised car lovers that they will not have to wait long as the details of future events will be revealed very soon.

After the drive, guests and celebrities enjoyed lunch at Mollie’s diner and an overnight stay, where they chose from a menu of the diner’s favourites.
