Classic Wings & Wheels is an exclusive event, organized every second year, where the most beautiful historical (race) cars and planes will be present. in a unique dynamic ambience. Not only on the ground but also in the air! Beautiful racing cars including historic Formula 1 cars and classic aircraft, including the Royal Netherlands Air Force Historical Flight Foundation will perform demonstrations and you will be able to view all this from very close by.
Lotus is "featured marque" in the 2017 edition and because Lotus has acquired this special place in Classic Wings & Wheels we have set ourselves the challenge of bringing together as many Lotus cars and drivers as we can.
For you as a participant a special program will be presented of racing and flying demonstrations, entertainment and excellent food and beverage throughout the day. Don’t bring lunch, don’t book a restaurant for dinner, this is an all-inclusive event. You will also get the opportunity to drive a demo with your Lotus (without helmet) on the airfield circuit. An All-in package!
In 2015, thanks to Classic Wings & Wheels, the Dutch Burns Foundation was the big winner with a donation of 50,000 Euros!
Note: Gilze-Rijen is an active military air base and this event is not open to the general public. Access will be granted by invitation only, there’s no possibility to buy an entry-ticket at any other place.
