WCS 2017 will be a whole new Classic and Supercar experience, celebrating the story of the car and the development of the supercar in all-new and exciting ways. As part of that, our new website is a big deal, and it can't be live for a while yet. So here's a mini-site to provide the basics for now.
Originally, we had hoped to stage our new event in 2016, but with radically inventive ideas in the mix and enthusiastic support coming from so many different areas, we've decided to consolidate and deliver a perfectly-formed vision in 2017.
In the meantime, you can keep in touch by signing-up for our Newsletter. Then we can tell you about our web developments and event news over the coming months. Our summer Wake-Up Sunday morning rallies continue, too. See below for more on them.
As for our bigger and bolder plans, don't worry - we promise not to change the weekend's vibe, its style, its character. And we won't be going all commercial. But what we will be doing is presenting cars and the people behind them in brave new ways.
Thanks for your patience. We promise you that it'll be worth it.
Over six early Sunday mornings during the summer months, Wilton House opens its Aurelius Gate (Wilton town entrance) to exceptional classic and modern cars. For over two hours attendees can enjoy the gathering of automotive treasures and their enthusiast owners.
The morning is free for all to come and join. However, if your car meets the theme of that day you will be invited to park in the North forecourt amid the beautiful backdrop of Wilton House. A full English breakfast can be purchased from our cafe to aid your recovery from the early morning start.
On House Open days you may also wish to stay-on and explore the spectacular grounds and House. Although please note there is a charge for House and Grounds Entry which is possible only after the Wake-Up ends. Click here for details
