The same show also saw him win the IBFA Masters Overall title where he was up against men 10 years younger.
Following his rapid success, Peter received an invite to compete in the IBFA World Championships in Rome, which took place in October.
Peter won again, meaning that, regardless of what happens, the record books will always show Peter as the 2014 IBFA World Champion Over 55.
Stores, 31, was voted overall winner and carried away the hand made trophy - as well as guaranteeing qualification for the IBFA National finals later this year.
Martyn Yates Brown, President of IBFA UK, was present to witness the show and see athletes qualify for places at the IBFA British Final (Mr Britain) to be staged on June 15 in Gateshead.
