The London Supercar Show stalls before it starts. It’s a non-starter.

I received this email from the shows CEO, Tony Robinson, to explain when the show will not be going ahead.  It’s a shame.  The concept was good.

“Dear Will,

Following an intensive week (commencing Monday 29 January) of examining our position in relation to regulations for straight-line motorsport, we have reluctantly decided to cancel the Blackbushe event originally planned for this May.

Most critically, what has come to light is that many of the supercars that we had expected to see running The Strip would be required to have an approved rally standard roll cage. This regulation seemingly applies to vehicles that are capable of 10.5 seconds or better for a standing quarter mile. Therefore many Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens – let alone much faster supercars – would require modifications that would be unacceptable to most supercar participants.

This and other matters that have come to light leave us with no alternative than to cancel the event. Our ambition had been to run a ‘live’ event as opposed to a static display of supercars. However, safety and compliance with regulations have always been paramount and the use of a non-motorsport venue has added to the complexities.

Sincerely,

Tony Robinson
CEO and Show Founder”
