Planning to go to this on Sunday. What's the parking like?

I assume it's in a big field of some kind? Want to make sure it's not a problem for a low car (although I do have lift)

Assuming you're referring to Blenheim Palace and not displaying in the main court yard, parking last year was on the grass in front of the palace. So no long grass of a field to deal with and no issues for me.

Thanks. Yes, that's what I meant - I'm not displaying.

Was really good last year. Pagani Zonda Tricolore (I think) turned up just as we arrived as well as some other real exotics you don't see at other shows. Certainly the best show I visited last year for top-notch rare hypercars.

I enjoyed it, particularly the car club and Bentley areas.
But WTF was the BMW diesel doing in the "GT paddock" display?!

I'd agree with that

Not been before, so have no comparison - but we enjoyed it. Highlight for me was chatting to one of the old (1925) Bentley owners and the demo he gave us of high / low beam on the headlights - a mechanical lever which literally moved the lights up and down. Had a nice chat with him and his wife for a while.

With decent weather, it seemed like a nice day out.
