The Heritage Motor Centre says that there will be more Supercars on display than in Monaco, when it hosts its Supercar Sunday show on Sunday 27 June. The annual event, which has been running for over 10 years, will see hundreds of Supercars and Superbikes gather for the one-day show. Thousands of visitors are expected to attend and enjoy an impressive display featuring the most powerful cars and bikes in the motor industry.

Highlights of the show at Gaydon, Warwickshire will include stunt bike displays from Dave Coates, a world record attempt for the largest gathering of Yamaha R1 and R6s and the Supercar & Superbike of the Year competitions.  Dave Coates’ show features various tricks on a Yamaha R1 Superbike, a Yamaha 450 Quad and a Yamaha 50cc scooter.

Another feature of the show is Dream Rides provided by Sporting Bears which gives visitors the chance to ride in a dream car in exchange for a donation to charity.

Other activities include model motor racing using a digital scalextrics which allows up to six cars to race on a two lane circuit.

Visitors can also enjoy a number of exciting outdoor activities including travelling as a passenger in a Land Rover on the 4x4 Experience or experiencing the thrills and challenges of the twists and turns on the purpose-built Go-Kart track.

Inside the Museum there are over 180 historic cars on display plus the new summer Star Cars exhibition of famous cars from TV & film; including a Batmobile, the new Judge Dredd vehicle and Shaun the Sheep’s Land Rover.

“Supercar Sunday is a fantastic exhilarating day out giving visitors the opportunity to view and admire some of the finest supercars and superbikes in one place,” says Emma Rawlinson, event executive, Heritage Motor Centre.

“Seeing Lamborghinis or Ferraris arrive en masse is a sight and sound to behold.”
