Sywell Classic - Pistons and Props
5th August 2015
Tickets are now on sale for The Footman James Sywell Classic - Pistons and Props motoring festival, held at Northamptonshire's Sywell Aerodrome on Sat 26th and Sun 27th September, and from the early line-up announcement, is set to be the best yet!
Now in its third year, Sywell Classic combines historic racers, hot rods and motorbikes with classic planes and vintage music to create a fantastic two-day event, celebrating classic motoring on the ground and in the air.
This year the transformed 'Racing Runway' and 'Sprint Strip' welcomes single seaters and sports saloons including the roaring 16.5 litre Fiat Issotta Fraschini, the 'Land Speed Record' car of Mike Vardy, complete with an airship engine.
There will also be iconic Formula 1 cars, Group B Rally cars, Hot Rods and Dragsters in action throughout the weekend as well as more motorcycle displays and action for two-wheeled motoring fans ranging from traditional British classics to more modern power-flexing superbikes.
Up in the skies; expect to see the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with a Hurricane and Spitfire flying overhead (and Dakota too on Sunday). The Great War Display team, this time with flak and bomb bursts, display on Saturday. Sunday will see a pairing of Spitfire and Seafire, and both days will see the Trig Aerobatic Team too!
Swing jive band The One Eyed Cats makes its Sywell debut with performances throughout the weekend, while Saturday night sees The New Dreamers featuring Tommy Cunningham, former Bay City Roller, get the party started.
For those that want to make a weekend of it, camping packages are available including ?show days and live evening entertainment. Plus you can buy a new weekend entrance ticket that covers both days as well as including the Saturday evening entertainment.
