ALL-NEW LONDON SUPERCAR SHOW ‘LIVE’ TO LAUNCH IN MAY 2019!


  • Fantastic new supercar event to launch on Sunday 12 May 2019
  • A two-day celebration of supercar culture
  • Featuring The Supercar Shootout – a standing ¼-mile competition for supercar owners
  • Unique combination of live action, high-quality exhibitors, displays from world-renowned marques and presentations from industry specialists


We are proud to announce the launch of The London Supercar Show ‘Live’, an all-new event scheduled for Sunday 12 May 2019 at the historic Blackbushe aerodrome.


With an automotive trade exhibition featuring aftermarket products, car care brands, dealers and OEMs, plus test drive opportunities, car displays, a Best in Show competition and live action on The Strip, this new event aims to bring a unique, high-octane dynamic to the traditional supercar show format.


Uniquely, supercar owners will be given the opportunity to enter their cars into The Supercar Shootout — a classic head-to-head ¼-mile competition on The Strip in front of an expected audience of 6,000 supercar enthusiasts and fans.


Exceptional car displays are also planned, with owners invited to enter their cars into the Best in Show event. This is not a concours, more a celebration of the supercar culture, with an emphasis on styling, colour scheme, detail, specification and drama – the hallmarks of great supercars.


“The concept for The London Supercar Show ‘Live’ is to provide the perfect platform for supercar owners, dealers, the aftermarket industry and enthusiasts to share their passion and combine the excitement of live, high-performance automotive action together with a unique environment where people can seek out their next upgrade, accessory or car purchase”, says Tony Robinson, the show’s founder. “This will be the dream destination for the trade, owners, enthusiasts and spectators alike.”


Blackbushe has a rich history of hosting automotive events, and being only a few minutes off the M25 is easily accessible to anyone living in the south of England. The runway is exceptionally wide at 45 metres and particularly smooth, making it the perfect venue for The Supercar Shootout element of the event.


“It is important to note that although the Shootout is a competitive event, it is intended to be a fun and entertaining activity where drivers can indulge in the supercar experience in complete safety,” says Ian Berry, the event director. “Unlike a trackday, running on The Strip will not be hard on the cars, but it will allow supercar owners to experience and demonstrate the pure unbridled performance of their cars in a safe and professionally managed environment.”
