So, you can find Crusaders, DC3s, Hurricanes or even Spitfires. Even if there is no Rolls-Royce on the track, you can see a lot of them in the air!

The car park is almost as astonishing as the paddocks. Some cars are there just because they don’t join in the races. You can even find modern supercars.
