Wilton House gears up for expanded Wilton Classic & Supercar weekend


Wilton House is set to improve on it’s hugely successful Wilton Classic & Supercar event for 2015 as it expands to a two day event in association with Castrol EDGE on June 6 & 7.

With millions of pounds worth of classic and supercars once again ready to descend on the ground of the stately home the event is set to feature the first public viewing of an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Zagato Prototype which was discovered recently in the USA after 50 years and the Bloodhound Project car ahead of its world record attempt later this year

There will also be  La Ferrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, 0ne-77 Aston Martin, a Veyron Pur Sang and a Veyron Super Sport WRC on show along with McLaren launching  their full three-tier model range.

The two days will vary with the Saturday focusing on classic cars and the Sunday looking at the more modern super and hyper cars; along with the machinerey there will be a live restoration project, interactive stands, live music and a host of food and trade stands.

Event ambassador Tiff Needell said “This is a great event in the motoring calendar and I’m thrilled to be involved this year, It’s a great excuse to spend two days surrounded by some amazing cars and bikes from rare old classics through to the very latest supercar technology.”

“We will have our Classic Car of the Show and Supercar of the Show trophies together with Spirit of Wilton but we have so many cars with great stories that we wanted to create a special award to highlight lesser known stories,” said Lord Pembroke. “We have great barn finds, local cars which have been in families for decades and others which have driven around the world and we want to tell their stories.’”

More than 500 cars and bikes are expected to be on display over the two day event on Saturday June 6 and Sunday June 7 with tickets now available online. Early bird tickets are priced from £16 for a daily adult pass.
