Hundreds of Supercars and Superbikes are set to zoom into the Heritage Motor Centre when it hosts the exhilarating Supercar Sunday show on Sunday 26th June. The annual event, which has been running for over 10 years, will see thousands of visitors enjoy an impressive display and track runs featuring some of the world’s most powerful cars and bikes.

Highlights will include the appearance of the Aston Martin One-77 supercar which Ian Cook, the radical car artist will be painting a picture of. Artist & photographer, Ian Cunningham will be showcasing his artwork with an exhibition.  Mattie Griffin, a bike stunt professional and ranked fifth in the world at Street Bike Freestyle Riding in 2008 and 2009, will be performing stunt shows throughout the day. Charlie Webster, the stunning commentator for Sky Sports News and one of the UK’s brightest new TV talents, will be commentating in the Show Arena with ‘Our Tim’, a character presenter. ‘Our Tim’ is known for his absolute love of all things automotive, lack of knowledge of everything else and the fact he will do pretty much anything including blagging his way into the Brits and waking people up at 6am live on the radio!

Land Rover Experience will be offering rides around the off road track plus a new supercharged ride which takes place next door at the top secret site of Jaguar Land Rover (additional cost applies). Another feature is Dream Rides provided by Sporting Bears which gives visitors the chance to have a ride in a dream car in exchange for a donation to charity.

Visitors will be able to watch an historic and magnificent plane fly over courtesy of Airbase, the living aviation museum in Coventry plus take part in Zorbing for just £5 a go. Surf boards and bouncy castles will also provide entertainment for children.  Visitors will also get the opportunity to meet their 'Hollywood Hero', costumed characters such as Freddie Krueger, Michael Myers, Jedi, Joker and Lara Croft. Inside the Museum there are over 180 historic cars on display plus the new Sci-Fi at the Movies exhibition, a unique opportunity to see original artefacts, replica models and costumes from favourite Sci-Fi movies.

Emma Rawlinson, Event Executive for the Heritage Motor Centre stated “Supercar Sunday is a fantastic and thrilling day out giving visitors the chance to view and admire some of the world’s finest Supercars & Superbikes. With stunt shows, artists, costumed characters, aircraft displays and plenty of supercar activities, the show has something for everyone!”
