Last weekend 115 cars parked up in the paddock area of Donington Park… but it wasn’t any old collection of metal. The highlights included a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, an Alfa 8C Spider, an Aston Martin V600 Le Mans, an Aston Martin 2/4 MkIII, the BAC MONO which made its UK debut, a De Tomaso Guara, a Ferrari 275 GTB, a Lamborghini Miura S, a Countach 5000, an open headlight Diablo SV, a Lamborghini Reventon Roadster, a CLK DTM AMG, two Spykers and an LS7 engined TVR Sagaris!
There was also pretty much every Ferrari and Lamborghini since the 1980’s, a range of Porsche RS models, a stunning Jaguar C-Type replica, a Corvette Stingray, an ex-racing Ultima GTR, a Noble M12, a Dodge Viper, a Bentley Supersports, a KTM X-Bow, an Ariel Atom Supercharged and a Lotus 2-Eleven. Not a bad group.
The purpose of the extraordinary private event was not only to bring together Supercars and their owners but also to raise money for a good cause. The nominated charity was the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice in Sheffield and £1700 was raised on the day. All in all, the event was judged a huge success and it looks like it won’t be the last…
