The Footman James Sywell Classic Pistons and Props 2017 classic car and aeroplane show returns to Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September 2017
Once again, a combination of historic racers from Formula 1, Formula 2 and Group B racing will be tearing up the runway tarmac, alongside a selection of classic and modern motorbikes.
Sywell Classic Pistons and Props 2017 – What’s on?
The pistons will be out in force, on the Racing runway as around 75 classic cars and bikes will chase the fastest times. Then the Sprint Strip will once again host the popular Street Car Shootout as dragsters and motorbikes go head to head.
Up in the sky, the props can be seen in the form of air displays performed by the world-renowned Yakovlevs and The Blades. Also don’t miss the world’s only formation wingwalking team, the Breitling Wingwalkers.
The show field will feature displays from some of the UK’s best classic car clubs.
Classic car owners show off their vehicles (must be manufactured pre 1986) in the Pole position parking area. Only limited spaces are available to book so be quick.
It’s not all about the transport at Sywell Classic. There is World War 1 and 2 re-enactments, live music, a vintage fun fair and craft fair.
