Celebrate Fathers Day with Flywheel Festival

Let’s face it Fathers can be hard to buy for right? I mean there’s only so many times that you can present them with a box of their favourite chocolates or a pair of new socks right?! So what about a day out doing what they enjoy surrounded by planes and other vehicles? That’s exactly the type of day my Father and Husband would love and later on this month there’s an opportunity to do just that.

The organisers of Flywheel at Bicester Heritage – Historic Promotions – have confirmed new dates for the third annual showcase celebrating classic winged and wheeled vehicles. Flywheel at Bicester Heritage 2017 will now take place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June, kick-starting a summer of British motorsport and coinciding with British Armed Forces Day.

Last year’s festival saw hundreds of historic cars, aircraft, motorbikes and military vehicles come alive on the demonstration track and in the sky at the UK’s best preserved Second World War Bomber Station, Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire. The crowds were joined by Sir Stirling Moss OBE who, as well as signing autographs, was reunited with a host of his race-winning cars from the 1950s and 1960s. While the theme is being kept closely under wraps, visitors are guaranteed an event that is even bigger and better than the two that have gone before. Plans are already firmly underway for the 2017 event, with organisers keen to further grow the attractions and increase the number of vehicles on display and demonstration.

So why not treat your dad to a Father’s day he’ll never forget. Ok so it is a few days later than the actual day but I’m a firm believer of celebrating having a dad every day not just for one specific day.
