Celica Joins The Tiger Squadron
Although we might dream of a sports car that can fly above the traffic, that remains just a dream: the Celica’s four wheels will in fact remain firmly on the ground as part of the show’s principle static display. With its bold leaping tiger paintwork, it will line up alongside equally boldly decorated aeroplanes and helicopters from international air force squadrons that feature a big cat in their crest or title. Visitors to the show will be able to take a close-up look at both the aircraft and the Celica in the dedicated exhibition area.
Toyota is supplying the event with official support vehicles, including a fleet of Serco-sponsored Land Cruisers that will guide taxiing aircraft as ‘follow me’ vehicles and a number of Lexus cars that will be chauffeuring VIP guests. Further Celica and MR2 Roadster models will also be on public display. And if anyone seeks even more adrenalin than that provided by the aerial action, visitors can swap seats with Jarno Trulli for a driver’s eye-view of grand prix racing on the Panasonic Toyota Racing Formula 1 simulator.
