    CHOOSE THE GREATEST SUPERCAR

    C&SC is holding a global poll to determine the greatest supercar of all time. With the Lamborghini Miura celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016, the genre is very much in the spotlight. Contrary to popular belief, though, the concept and the term – first used in a 1920 Ensign Six advert – go back much further. CHOOSE THE GREATEST SUPERCAR

    C&SC is holding a global poll to determine the greatest supercar of all time. With the Lamborghini Miura celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016, the genre is very much in the spotlight. Contrary to popular belief, though, the concept and the term – first used in a 1920 Ensign Six advert – go back much further.

    That is why C&SC, in conjunction with The Classic & Sports Car Show, is launching A Century of Supercars to determine the greatest ever and create a showstopping centrepiece to our London event. We have picked three contenders from each era, and now it’s your turn to vote in our massive online survey. Simply go to www.classic andsportscarshow.com/supercars and choose your favourite from each group between now and 31 August. Just by participating you could win one of five sets of Gold tickets to the event – each pair worth £100 and offering a host of benefits including access to a special lounge, early entry and more.

    To give you a taste of the gamechanging cars that you will be able to vote for, they range from the world-beating 1908 Mercedes and Alfa Romeo 8C, to the monstrous Métallurgique, sublime Ferrari 250GT SWB, fiery Ferrari F40 and record-breaking Bugatti Veyron. Once the first-round results are in, we will pit the winners from each category against each other in a final showdown, with voting taking place throughout September.

    All of the finalists will be on display in a spectacular line-up at The Classic & Sports Car Show (to be held at London’s iconic Alexandra Palace from 28-30 October), where the winner will be revealed. In more exciting show news, tickets are officially on sale from 1 June. As outlined in last month’s magazine, there is a raft of great new packages this year, with everything from general access to a strictly limited number of Platinum deals promising an unrivalled visitor experience. Plus, the price of the newly introduced family ticket is just £69 for two adults and two children, with under-12s going free.

    And don’t forget that all C&SC readers get an exclusive offer of just £20 for a general-entry adult ticket. To take advantage, use the special code CSCSread when buying. To book your tickets, find out more and get all the latest show updates, as well as to see highlights from last year, visit the revamped website: www.classicandsportscarshow.com To keep up to date with weekly or daily news, make sure that you sign up for the dedicated newsletter and follow the event on Facebook (classicandsportscarshow) and Twitter (@candscshow).

    RACING RUNWAY ATTRACTS STAR F1 CARS TO FOOTMAN JAMES SYWELL CLASSIC - PISTONS AND PROPS

    RACING RUNWAY ATTRACTS STAR F1 CARS TO FOOTMAN JAMES SYWELL CLASSIC - PISTONS AND PROPS

    This year’s Footman James Sywell Classic – Pistons and Props will play host to three historic Formula One cars on the ‘Racing Runway’ of Sywell Aerodrome on 26th and 27th September.

    The 1992 Benetton B192, 1977 Hesketh 308E and 2002 Jordan EJ12 will take to the track, which sees the mile-long tarmac runway turned into a demonstration circuit, featuring displays from over 70 historic racing cars and motorbikes. Graham Williams will be bringing his 1977 Hesketh 308E, powered by a 3.0 Cosworth DFV V8 and maintained by Graham himself. The model is notable for being Hesketh’s last Formula One design, as well as its infamous Penthouse/Rizla livery during its first season in 1977 – a livery featuring a Penthouse Pet embracing a Rizla packet. This livery is still worn by Graham’s example.

    The Benetton B192 used by Michael Schumacher in the 1992 World Championship and now owned by former multiple British Womens Racing Drivers Club (BRWDC) champion Lorina McLaughlin will also be in action. Lacking traction control and ABS, and with an underpowered Ford V8, it nevertheless made the most of what it had courtesy of an excellent chassis. After scoring points in each race, Benetton came third in the Constructors Championship thanks to this car.

    A 2002 Jordan EJ12 will also feature in the line-up. The model, which earned the Jordan team sixth place in the World Constructors’ Championship, took fifth place in the Monaco Grand Prix when driven by Giancarlo Fisichella. Powered by a 3.0 Honda V10, the example on show is the very first EJ12 built. The cars will get two runs per session, with two ‘Racing Runway’ sessions happening each day, featuring a mix of hot rods, dragsters, single seaters and saloons.

    Now in its third year, Sywell Classic combines historic racers, hot rods and motorbikes with classic planes and vintage music to create a fantastic two-day event, celebrating classic motoring on the ground and in the air. Up in the skies; expect to see the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with a Hurricane, Lancaster and Spitfire flying overhead. The breathtaking ladies of the Breitling Wingwalkers return as does the World War 1 Dogfight display team, this time with flak and bomb bursts, with both performing Saturday and Sunday.

    Swing jive band The One Eyed Cats makes its Sywell debut with performances throughout the weekend, while Saturday night sees The New Dreamers featuring Tommy Cunningham, former Bay City Roller, get the party started.

    Adult tickets for Sywell Classic start from £18 in advance with tickets for children aged 5-15 from £7 in advance and free entrance for those under 5-years-old. A family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) starts from £43 in advance with all advance tickets subject to a service charge. Car parking is free. The show is open from 10am until 5.30pm on Saturday, 10am until 5pm on Sunday.

    Porsche NEC debut - 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo: The model that became legend. Porsche has paved the way for other manufacturers to get behind the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, by announcing that it will bring a display of classics to this year’s event (14-16 November).

    The Stuttgart marque’s stand will bring together sixteen classic Porsches restored by its dealers across the UK, as the finale of its Classic Restoration Competition that was launched in January. The display will mark the 40th anniversary of the infamous 911 Turbo being launched, and the manufacturer’s decision to reintroduce its original Targa roof arrangement. Dan Nwaokolo, Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show Director, said: “We are thrilled to have Porsche joining us at the show. The support of such a prestigious manufacturer demonstrates the strength of the show and the overall classic market.”
