Wilton Super Cars
This weekend just gone my son and myself accompanied a good friend and his son
to the Wilton car show near Salisbury in Wiltshire. It has been the country seat
of the Earls of Pembroke for over 400 years, the grounds are spectacular and worth a visit.
Classics and supercars wow crowds at Wilton
This year’s Wilton Classic & Supercar show has been hailed as a huge success after 15,000 visitors flocked to see more than 500 of the world’s most impressive, exciting and expensive cars.
Bugattis, McLarens and Aston Martins lined up together with historic F1 cars in the grounds of Wilton House with warm, sunny weather providing the perfect backdrop for the weekend.
The crowds also enjoyed motorcycle stunt displays, steam engines, new car launches and live music at the two day show in Wiltshire.
The 10th anniversary of the Bugatti Veyron was celebrated in style with the most impressive Bugatti collection ever assembled and the first appearance together of the McLaren of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost’s Ferrari since they famously crashed in the Japanese Grand Prix 25 years ago.
Highlights also included the Castrol Power Paddock, Wilton College providing interactive displays and the Bolddog FMX team.
Lord Pembroke, who hosts the event, said he was thrilled to welcome so many cars and spectators to the event which has expanded from one to two days this year.
