Thousands of people, millions of pounds worth of vehicles and hundreds of stunning images capturing all the tricks, stunts and memorable moments of Bournemouth'e first-ever Wheels Festival, made the event a success to be repeated.

Organisers have already named the date for next year's event - May 23-25, 2015 - heralding the  inaugural Wheels Festival 'record-breaking'.

With Formula 1 vehicles racing along the East Cliff, monster trucks on the beach and breath-taking stunts from BMX riders and motocross riders, there were many highlights to be seen.

And that's without throwing stunt rider Dan Whitby's two-time Pier Jump into the mix.

To celebrate the success, we've compiled a selection of our favourite images snapped by Daily Echo photographers. Let us know your favourite below.

Superb May bank holiday festival of wheels and a great turn out by all. Now lets grt it bigger and not so many open areas on the sand. Also invest some of the 9 million that is show made into the air festival and pay the fee for the vulcan to fly. Air festival funds the wheels and start bank rolling these two great showa of each other.
