New additions to this year's 'Best of British' event announced
Wilton Classic and Supercars returns on Sunday 5th August when once again Lord Pembroke will allow a great collection of classic and current supercars to park on his lawn alongside a host of trade stands and other attractions. This year sees an increase in display cars, air displays, more trade and club stands and the addition of a dedicated classic car display area. McLaren are now sponsers for 2012, so expect it to be a significant presence over the weekend.
V12 Zagato now confirmed for Wilton House
As many of you will know, the format is simple yet effective, with a parade of supercars arriving on site at 12.00, and with over 200 cars expected on the day you can be sure it will be a sight (and sound) to behold. Thes then arrange themselves on the lawn to be admired. Alongside the house will be a range of classic cars from dealers and car clubs alike in addition to the EFG International paddock and as the show has a theme of 'Best of British' you can be sure to see some excellent cars from E-Types to the MP4-12C. Aston Martin are embracing this theme by bringing a new V12 Vantage Zagato and a James Bond-spec DBS to Wilton House.
The entertainment isn't just on the ground either; there will be an aerobatic display from a Lynx helicopter at around 3 p.m. An Apache helicopter is also provisionally booked, and we'll keep you up to date with the progress of its availability.
