Classic Wings & Wheels - Gilze Airbase (NL) Aug 21, 2015

Postby Jeroen » Tue Aug 25, 2015 1:02 am

Charity event that made a nice combo with classic racing and classic planes. Also celebrating 50 years of Matra sports and race cars as well as the life of Henri Pescarolo, former F1 driver, 33 times Le Mans 24 Hours competitor and now team owner. Impressive or not?! A few snaps to start...

F1 demo with some grasshoppers, almost had my toe nails clipped lol

Image

Ex Schumi car in action, Benetton Ford B192 1992, now driven by Lorina McLaughlin hence the pink helmet :wink:

Image

Pescarolo had a great time in his Matra ex F1 car, but he was ready to hop behind the wheel of any car!

Image

Enough BMW action as well, this M1 was present at one of our earlier editions of the Sharknose Meeting

Image

And how about this 1930's line up? 327 coupe, 328 roadster and rare 328 Touring Superleggera!

Image

More later!

I guess later is now :wink: here's a few more shots on the event. Wonderful event indeed, but as its a fundraiser I understood that tickets were pretty expensive. That's why I'm sharing the results with you guys!

Dutch former F1 driver Guido van de Garde did some demos together with DHG racing, for example in the Cobra and older models F1 cars



Image

Image

Some wonderful classic racing and classic demos at the airbase

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We already saw a 327 and some 328's, how about the Nurburgring based business Veritas that built race cars based on the 328 chassis and engine?

Image

Spyker Le Mans car

Image

During lunch time there was a lovely airshow, the Wings part of the event including some acrobatics in a B-25 Mitchell!

Image

Image

Image

But as stated before, a special role was for the impressive career of Henri Pescarolo. Ex F1 driver, participated in 33 editions of the Le Mans 24 hours and now a LMS team owner

Image

Image

Image

post race interviews

Image

and posing with another Le Mans winner, dutchman Jan Lammers who also took part in the Matra demo

Nice event indeed. May i ask how you get the tickets because i know it is a private party and not open for regular public.

Well as far as I know you could buy tickets but they were very expensive. I was there on a press assignment for Het Automobiel Magazine.

Because i live there in the region it was mentioned to me but the tickets where available if you are a member of a certain club in the region or by invitation. As the organisation mentioned they would keep it like this because otherwise there would be to much public.
