Popular classic and supercar show expands for 2015
Organisers of the Wilton Classic and Supercar Show have announced plans to make next year’s event bigger and better than ever before by expanding the popular one day motoring show to a whole weekend.
Due to be held in the grounds of Wilton House on June 6/7 2015, the show has become one of the most popular dates in the classic and supercar calendar and Lord Pembroke said he was delighted to be adding another day to the event.
“Interest in these cars is phenomenal and by launching plans for a whole weekend of motoring fun we can accommodate more visitors and introduce a range of new initiatives for 2015,’’ he said.
Plans for 2015 include the legendary parade of supercars together with the popular Head to Head feature which pits some of the world’s greatest cars against their rivals.
New for next year will be a focus on the armed forces with Lord Pembroke keen to honour the motoring aspects of the army, navy and RAF.
“Wilton House has strong military links having been the Southern Command headquarters for Operation Overlord in World War II,’’ he said. “We are in an important military area of the country and want to recognise the tremendous efforts of our armed forces.’’
Plans are now being finalised for a discount for military families and Lord Pembroke said he is hoping for a number of displays from the armed forces.
Also new for 2015 will be a range of interactive attractions with everything from wheel changing to restoration projects currently being finalised.
“This is a show for everyone to see some of the world’s most amazing cars, enjoy Wilton House and our grounds but also get involved in a range of motoring activities,’’ said Lord Pembroke.
