Wings and Wheels 2012 launch

The unmissable heart pumping roar of powerful jet engines, the twisting and turning trills of death defying stunts, the iconic beauty of vintage and classic machines and the joyful buzz of delighted spectators gives you just a taste of what makes Wings & Wheels a sensational summer event.


Binoculars will be at the ready as the Wings of the event ensures visitors are treated to phenomenal five hour air displays including show favourites the Red Arrows, Avro Vulcan and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.


With sparkling hub caps, perfect paintwork and the deep murmur and reverberation of finely tuned engines, you dont need to be a petrol head to delight in the Wheels of the show. A mouthwatering selection of vehicles will take to the Top Gear track in a two hour auto spectacular which showcases a range of supercars and classic and vintage icons in an awe inspiring display of power and speed.



  • Wings and Wheels takes place on Sunday August 26 and Monday August 27 at Dunsfold Park near Cranleigh. For more information and tickets visit www.wingsandwheels.net. Proceeds from the event go to nominated charities: Brooklands Museum Trust, Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust, Help for Heroes and Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.


P.S.Wings & Wheels World record breakers
The Wings & Wheels team set the new Guinness World Record for Longest line of toy cars at the 2012 launch event at Dunsfold Aerodrome (pictured above). The world record attempt, which saw 3,737 cars lined up over 258.2 metres, was completed on the Top Gear track.


P.P.S.Olympics stuntman coming to Cranleigh
Olympics opening ceremony aerial stuntman Gary Connery will make an exclusive appearance at Dunsfold Wings & Wheels on Monday August 27. Arriving in a James Bond-esque pursuit in an AC Cobra, Gary will make good his escape by helicopter, before exiting to make his trademark wing-suit flight, deploying the canopy just in time to make a target landing in front of the audience. Over one billion people worldwide watched Garys last performance as he stood in for the skydiving Queens dramatic arrival at the Olympics Opening Ceremony with James Bond. It was the most talked-about sequence of Danny Boyles stunning three hour ceremony.
