For this special event we will be gathering automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, commercial vehicles, buses and aircraft from the period up to 1919. In the paddock there will be a display of the vehicles taking part in the Great War Centenary Parade in London on the 4th August. At lunchtime these pre-war vehicles will be taking part in a Cavalcade round the Mercedes-Benz World circuit. Overhead will be a stunning air show from the Great War Display Team. On the ground, we hope to bring the Vimy to life, for the first time since it flew in in 2009.
