"Wings & Wheels" fills up21st July 2020
With just over two weeks to go until the inaugural Guernsey Aero Club "Wings & Wheels" event, the available tarmac for both aircraft and cars has nearly been filled.
Member of the organising Committee, Gary Elson, said: "We are really pleased to report that the response from the various auto clubs on the island has been excellent, and we estimate that our car park will full of a diverse range of "wheels" items. The Classic Car Club, Old Car Club, Hot Rods, Military Vehicles, Rally and Hill Climb cars, Classic tractors and Triumph motorbikes will all be on display. In addition, Jacksons Garage and Ian Brown Cycles will also have a presence. We are certainly putting on plenty for people to see - our current challenge is ensuring we can accommodate all the vehicles, which is a nice problem to have."
