The Shannon Domain was covered by cars, trucks, bikes and people on Sunday, with about 240 vehicles featuring in the Spectacular Car Show.

About 2000 people attended, estimated Janette Campbell, secretary of the Shannon Progressive Association which organised the annual event.

''It's a bit hard to say for sure how many came, because it was free to attend, but we're really happy with the turnout and the show overall.''

Mrs Campbell said the event showcased Shannon as well as the huge variety of vehicles ranging in age and value.

''It's not often you can see a $500,000 Ferrari in Shannon - but there was one, parked on the grass at the domain.''

Mrs Campbell said there were about 40 more vehicles on display than last year.
