We needed an early start to get to Wilton House for this event and we were still a little late as it is always further than we think. As we had signed up with Pistonheads we had a space on their reserved parking area which overlooks both the show and the house. The parking area is set up on a bank making it a very pleasant place to park and to enjoy your picnic later and being full of Pistonheads too, there is an abundance of nice cars to see in the field.
Driving into the show is always fun as there are many interesting cars to spot on the way in. We took the Opel GT as it still turns head and has a proper place at a car event being a rare creature itself.
We met up with Dealmaker and Star Girl when we got there and Fandango and The Elf shortly after and spent a while looking at and in, the many new cars on show on the Dealer stands, Then we browsed the old and the rare before finally heading off to watch the parade of supercars at 12 noon.
Soon it was time for lunch so we headed back to our car and set up our stove for bacon baps, tea and coffee. From our position we had an amazing view of the stunt bike display and got a real sense of just how far and high they flew. God that was seriously impressive.
After lunch we went to explore the Supercar display now that they were all parked up and watched the helicopter display as we walked. We are definitely in a Porsche mood at the moment and it was the classic 911s that persistently caught our eye. You might get a sens of this when you browse our photos from the day by clicking on the photos.
Late afternoon it started to rain a little so it seemed a good time to head home, tired but full of dreams. It was as always a lovely show in a beautiful setting, good value for money and a very good day out all round, with great company to top it all.
