THOUSANDS of people flocked to Stockton town centre to check out dozens of high performance sports cars, American muscle cars and motorbikes.

Stockton's Supercar Saturday attracted a wide variety of high-end motors including a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, a Tesla and a McLaren.

At lunchtime, thousands of people lined the streets to watch a 40-strong parade of vehicles performing two laps around the town centre for people to see and hear the motors in action.
