Last year, you may remember Clive Bury telling us about the day he volunteered to help at The Supercar Event, held at Top Gear Testing Track, Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey. To read his blog and learn more about the history of this amazing event, click here.
This year, Cleankill didn’t just send one volunteer to this event, it sent four! Director Jon Whitehead, Technician Richard Morgan, Sales Manager Mike Williamson, and myself, all happily gave up part of our weekend to help this amazing event in aid of The Children’s Trust.
Taking place on the 24th and 25th June, The Supercar Event brought together cars worth over £60 million pounds – one car, the Pagini Huarya, was worth over £2 million pounds on its own! Other cars collected for the event included: Ferrari F40, McLaren 570GT, Ferrari 488 Spider, Ariel Nomad, Mercedes AMG GTR, Ferrari 458 Speciale, Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, and the Lamborghini Aventador SV. But this is just a small selection of the super cars on offer. In total 175 drivers gave their time, their cars, their tyres and their fuel, to help this amazing event.
Unfortunately, none of us owns a £2 million car, so we worked as part of the 300-strong team of volunteers that marshalled the event over the weekend. Jon, Richard and myself all helped out on the pre-paid ticket desk and lucky Mike got to help in the VIP area – you might have seen his picture with a certain celebrity driver!
