The sky's the limit for Props & Pistons!

One of the Midlands' most popular automotive and aviation shows is promising to be more memorable than ever, as a Spitfire, Lancaster Bomber and Hurricane prepare to take to the Lincolnshire skies - and send funds soaring for a Leukaemia charity.

Props & Pistons, on Monday August 28, will bring the iconic war planes to life for another year, not to mention a Dutch B-25 Bomber and a Mosquito for the first time, as it aims to add to the £12,000 currently raised for Bloodwise.
The jaw dropping collection of war planes and luxury sports cars - worth more than £20 million - should attract between 4 and 5,000 people at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, with a display of world class cars also expected excite in equal measure.

Ferraris, Bentleys and Porsches should generate significant interest, with new arrivals also confirmed in the shape of a Delorean, an Aston Martin DB5 and a BMW M4 DTM German touring car.

Other cars and aircraft will also add to the overall spectacle, while the world's largest tyre and rubber company Bridgestone will add its presence to proceedings, courtesy of a chance to win a set of tyres.

Bridgestone will also create an unusual spectacle of its own, when it punctures its revolutionary DriveGuard tyres before demonstrating how motorists can keep on driving afterwards. Other giveaways will be up for grabs during the day.

Organisers Bush Tyres, Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire's leading independent tyre specialist, said: "This will be our seventh Props & Pistons event and we can safely say we have our most impressive collection of cars and planes yet.

 "We keep growing and improving each year and as an attraction, in an attempt to make it the best in the area and an event that all the family can really look forward to.

"Over the past six years, we have managed to raise £12,000 for Bloodwise and all proceeds from this event will go towards this worthy cause. We want to raise as much as possible for the charity so hopefully the weather stays fair and a great number of people come along."

Props and Pistons initially involved some of Bush Tyres' friends and customers who either owned or knew of some impressive cars to exhibit. The event has steadily grown and is now on course to be as big as anything we have organised before.

"It is great that Bridgestone is lending its support again this year and if we see some smiling faces and families enjoying themselves on the day, then all the effort will be worthwhile."

Bridgestone's key accounts manager Sam Allatt said: "Bush Tyres is one of our most valued customers and we know how important Props and Pistons is on their calendar.

"The event provides an invaluable platform to showcase our portfolio of products including DriveGuard, which allows motorists to drive for up to 50 miles at speeds up to 50mph following a puncture. We hope that families will be interested in the technology, so it is a great opportunity for us to be at the show."
