Wheels and wings and other things

Sy­well Clas­sic: Pis­tons & Props, Sept 22-23

Practical Classics (UK) - - CLUBS EVENTS -

The best events are those that don’t fo­cus ex­clu­sively on cars – some other vin­tage ma­chin­ery is al­ways a good thing. The Sy­well Clas­sic mixes vin­tage air­craft with clas­sic cars and mo­tor­bikes to great ef­fect. It’s not a static event ei­ther – some of the air­craft are fly­ing and a drag strip is in action through­out the week­end, where you can see around 75 hot rods and drag­sters do­ing their thing.

The jet-pow­ered VW Type 2 Ok­la­homa Willy will also be do­ing demo runs on the drag strip, while the Two Broth­ers stunt team will be per­form­ing mo­tor­bike drift­ing dis­plays.

Chuck in live mu­sic from the the Jitterbug Jets, the Houndogs, plus Lola and her Blue Light Boys and you’ve got the per­fect recipe for a great week­end.

As if all this wasn’t enough, there’s also a host of own­ers’ groups dis­play­ing their wares,

in­clud­ing the Saab En­thu­si­asts’ Club, Fiat 500 Club, TVR Car Club and multi-mar­que clas­sic car clubs from all over the Mid­lands.

The show or­gan­is­ers are keen to get as many vis­i­tors in pe­riod at­tire as pos­si­ble, so if you’ve got some­thing suit­able in the wardrobe be sure to wear it. Catch the judge’s eye and you could win your­self a bot­tle of wine.

Tick­ets are avail­able on the day, but if you book ahead and you’re in a pre-1986 car you’ll be able to grab a slot in the Pole Po­si­tion park­ing lot so you’re a part of the show. Log on to sywell­clas­sic. co.uk for more.

If you like the smell of burn­ing rub­ber, come on down!
