Sywell Classic - Pistons and Props
16th November 2012
Similar in concept to wings and wheels - which takes place a couple of miles from our showrooms - a new event announced below for next year..
Event organiser Live Promotions is launching a brand new motoring festival celebrating classic vehicles both on the ground and in the air. Sywell Classic – Pistons and Props will be held at Northamptonshire’s Sywell Aerodrome on Sat 28th and Sun 29th Sept 2013, and will combine classic cars, motorbikes and planes with all aspects of vintage lifestyle and entertainment.
“Sywell Classic brings together the best of all the classic motoring events in the calendar, with amazing static displays, live action both on the ground and in the air, great family entertainment and a wide range of vintage and classic traders,” Event Director Tom Siddall explains. “The facilities at Sywell Aerodrome are superb and it has a great atmosphere with its fantastic aviation museum and art deco buildings. There couldn’t be a better venue for an event of this kind.”
Classic motoring clubs are invited to display their marques while historic racecars and motorcycles find a new use for the airstrip for high-octane live action. The organisers are offering clubs the chance to display their vehicles for free, bringing from five to 15 examples of their chosen marque. For each vehicle, the owner will receive two free show passes for the event.
Vintage planes such as Tiger Moths and Spitfires will put on displays of their own overhead while back on the ground, live music and a vintage funfair and sideshow will keep families entertained. The Vintage Village will bring together classic traders with those catering for lovers of nostalgia and the vintage lifestyle. As well as the usual motoring products and services, organisers are looking to attract vintage and retro clothing and accessory traders.

If you want something to blast down the airstrip - our MV would probably put up a good account of itself....
