MOTOR-MAD car fans are gearing up for the Wilton Classic Supercar event on Sunday.

Held in the grounds of Wilton House, the event will bring together some of the most important road and race cars in the world.

The event was set up six years ago by Lord Pembroke and Jay Broom and makes sure there are child-friendly stands and exhibits too so the event is a great day out for all the family.

It has grown into one of the largest events of its kind in the country, with millions of pounds worth of modern supercars and rare classics on display, such as the Aston Martin Bertone Jet 2+2, which is the only one in the world, a McLaren P1, a Bugatti Veyron, a Lamborghini Miura, a host of Ferraris, at least 12 Jaguar XJ220s and more than 100 Maseratis as part of the centenary display.

At noon, more than 175 supercars will arrive and parade into the estate, and there will be more than a 100 classic cars on display.

This year there will be a rally stage sponsored by Castrol Edge, with iconic group B rally cars performing high speed runs and young rally star Elfyn Evans will be taking to the track in his Castrol Fiesta R200 to show what modern rally cars can do.

There will also be a “head to head” theme with classic icons meeting their modern counterparts – the Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing meets the SLS, the BMW M1 and the i8 and the Lamborghini Miura and the Huracan.

The Inch Perfect stunt bike team will be performing throughout the day and the Bloodhound, the car with the fastest land speed record, will on display.

Tickets cost £18 for adults and £8 for children, under fives go free.
