On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September 2017, The Footman James Sywell Classic Pistons and Props will be returning to the Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire. The event will combine hot rods, bikes, historic racers alongside an array of air displays and vintage performances from musical acts.
On the Racing Runway will be Formula 1, Formula 2 and Group B racing across the tarmac, also joined by a selection of both classic and modern bikes.
The popular Street Car Shootout will be returning this year, bigger and better than before, with 40 of the most incredible Street Rods and Dragsters on display.
There will be aerial performances from the Yakovlevs – ‘world leaders in precision formation and graceful aerobatics’ as well as the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The Breitling Wingwalkers, who are the world’s only aerobatic formation wingwalkers, will be taking to the skies for what is bound to be an impressive performance.
In the Footman James Scarf and Goggles Bar there will be a tribute to Dusty Springfield from ‘Dusty and Friends’, an appearance from Jayne Darling the vintage singer and the Rock-ola Rockets, a rockabilly group. One Eyed Cats will also be playing for those planning an overnight stay in Hangar One.
There will be a mix of classic car and bike clubs at Sywell for the event. It will be a great opportunity to speak to other enthusiasts, publicise your club as well as being in the running to win an award for the ‘best presented’ club stand throughout the weekend.
There are also other benefits to bringing your car/bike, there are options available for a discounted two-day show admission for both driver and passenger!
