Nick Wigley, Event Director comments: ‘This new Supercar Legends celebration really is the best of both worlds. Visitors get to see the most exciting and celebrated machines from past eras together with some of today’s greatest creations; the classics of the future… all in one great big mouth-watering gathering.
