Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar returns for its 2nd year on Sunday 2nd September 2018. Created by luxury automotive organisers, Salon Prive, the thrilling event was a roaring success drawing crowds of over 10,000 visitors to its first show.
The family-friendly day will showcase more than 300 of the world’s greatest classic and supercars in the stunning surroundings of the Oxfordshire World Heritage Site.
The Pirelli Prestige & Performance Competition is the focus of the day, featuring 80 sensational super and hypercars built 1977 from 1978 to the current day, hosted by prestigious Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli within the Palace’s Great Court.
With eight pre-selected classes including ‘Hypercars’, ‘Super Roadsters’, ‘200mph Club, ‘Hybrid’ and ‘Open-Top Porsche 911 (1970 – 1989)’, it’s an exciting competition culminating in the Winner’s Parade later in the afternoon. Details of the full classes will be available soon.
“This truly is a must-attend event for every car lover and enthusiast; it is an unmissable opportunity to see the most extravagant and spectacular hypercars, supercars and classic cars on the planet, all at the most affordable price imaginable,” David Bagley, Co-Founder of Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar.
“Set against the equally spectacular backdrop of what is undoubtedly ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’, this incredible show allows visitors to get closer than ever before to the world’s greatest automotive marques such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Maserati, McLaren, Noble, Pagani, Rimac, Rolls-Royce, Zenvo and many others,” he added.
The public day is an extension to Salon Privé’s long-established ‘Pirelli Prestige & Performance Competition’.
A wide selection of food and refreshments will also be available from Blenheim Palace’s eateries throughout the day.
Built in the early 18th century to celebrate Britain’s victory over the French in the War of the Spanish Succession, Blenheim Palace is the ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. It was officially designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
