Props and Pistons at East Kirkby
On bank holiday Monday August 29th Gantspeed participated in the very local props and pistons event at the second world war airfiels at East Kirkby.This is an event whhich is growing year on year. A beautiful late summers day resulted in a huge number of visitors who were treated to a large cross section of classic and high performance cars, a small number of aircraft and taxi runs in the airfields own Lancaster Bomber. This Lancaster is an on-going restoration project and hopefully one day it will take to the air again. Unfortunatly the Lancaster from the local Battle of Britain collection at RAF Conningsby could not make it’s scheduled flypast due to an engine issue.
On our stand we displayed a 1952 356 coupe, 1956 356A rally car, 1962 356B coupe, 1979 911 3.0SC and a Cayman GT4. There was a very high level of interest in our cars and the services we offer. We met many old freinds and clients and hopefully made some good contacts for the future.
