The unmissable heart pumping roar of powerful jet engines, the twisting and turning trills of death defying stunts, the iconic beauty of vintage and classic machines and the joyful buzz of delighted spectators gives you just a taste of what makes Wings & Wheels a sensational summer event.

Binoculars will be at the ready as the ‘Wings’ of the event ensures visitors are treated to phenomenal five hour air displays including show favourites the Red Arrows, Avro Vulcan and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

With sparkling hub caps, perfect paintwork and the deep murmur and reverberation of finely tuned engines, you don’t need to be a petrol head to delight in the ‘Wheels’ of the show. A mouthwatering selection of vehicles will take to the Top Gear track in a two hour auto spectacular which showcases a range of supercars and classic and vintage icons in an awe inspiring display of power and speed.

Wings and Wheels takes place on Sunday August 26 and Monday August 27 at Dunsfold Park near Cranleigh. For more information and tickets visit www.wingsandwheels.net. Proceeds from the event go to nominated charities: Brooklands Museum Trust, Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust, Help for Heroes and Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.
