FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will the demonstration runs be taking place this year?
Due to new safety advice relating to motorsport events recently issued by the Health & Safety Executive, our demonstration runs are not able to continue in their previous format and feature high-speed vehicle movement. We will instead hold Supercar Parades along Chestnut Avenue in a lower-speed format so that visitors can still see and hear these amazing vehicles on the move.
Will the sound-offs be taking place this year?
Yes. Also returning for 2024, a selection of cars will be demonstrating on the Arena the tunes of their powerful engines taking place at 4pm each day.
Can we have photographs with the displays
You can photograph any of the displays here at the Supercar Weekend. Many of the cars are roped off and we ask that you please do not enter any roped areas and touch the display cars. Please do not lean on the roped areas. Where cars are not roped, we ask that you kindly do not touch the displays. Some owners will permit photographs with or inside vehicles such as within the Sporting Bears display. Please be mindful of bags, jewellery, cameras or other items when near display cars.
