Appeal for classics to take starring role at Wilton


Organisers of the Wilton Classic and Supercar Show have launched an appeal for special classics to star at this year's event, which for the first time will feature an expanded two-day programme.

The seventh running of the show has been scheduled for 6-7 June, with the first day celebrating classic cars and the second featuring modern supercars. 

Up to 150 classics will be given pride of place on Wilton House's East Lawn, and those that are selected will be able to attend a private breakfast hosted by Lord Pembroke plus receive premium show tickets. 

The following day will feature the return of the popular supercar parade in addition to a display celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Bugatti Veyron, which will include Lord Pembroke's personal example.

"Every year we get more visitors and more exhibitors wanted to be part of the show," said Lord Pembroke. "By adding an extra day, we can accommodate more enthusiasts and introduce a range of new initiatives."

This year's event is also expected to honour the motoring exploits of the armed forces. 

"Wilton House has strong military links having been the Southern Command headquarters for Operation Overlord during WW2," said Pembroke. "We are in an important military area of the country and want to recognise the tremendous efforts of our armed forces."
