Spoil your Dad this Father’s Day with a day at Blenheim Palace surrounded by spectacular supercars

There’s no better way to spoil your dad on Father’s Day than with tickets to the spectacular, inaugural “Speed & Style” Competition at Blenheim Palace on Saturday 5thSeptember.

With access to hundreds of supercars, the Supercar Show public ticket, which admits one father and one child, costs just £30. Alternatively, there is a £40 ticket for two adults.

Located within the Great Court, the new event which sits alongside the world-renowned Salon Privé, will feature upwards of 200 carefully selected supercars from 1975 to modern day. With the columns of the Palace on one side and the Great Vanburgh Bridge and lake on the other, the scene is set for a sensational day out.

Iconic supercars that your fathers drooled over as kids, including Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lotus, McLaren, Bugatti, Bentley and Rolls-Royce, will all be on display.

To fuel the excitement, parades will take place throughout the day showcasing the classic and supercars from within Salon Privé, giving guests the opportunity to see all of the cars on show throughout the event. Selected car clubs will also be attending with their own specialist displays.

Salon Privé managing director Andrew Bagley commented: “We’ve seen such great success with Salon Privé over the last ten years, and we’ve discovered a growing appetite for a public supercar element. The “Speed & Style” Competition answers this demand, and will bring a new generation of visitors to this brilliant event.”

Conceived by Andrew and David Bagley in 2004, Salon Privé has gone from strength to strength, showcasing everything from rare, bespoke classics through to the latest prestige and performance cars. The event has also continued to attract an increasing portfolio of world-renowned luxury and lifestyle brands, from jewellery to executive jets to fine art.

The addition of the Saturday ‘public day’ featuring the ‘Speed & Style’ supercar competition adds an innovative and exciting new component to the event.

Kids really wishing to spoil their fathers can splash out on the VIP ticket which includes luncheon as well as full access to Salon Prive and the “Speed & Style” Competition.
