The inaugural Motor Show EAST took place 2-3 June 2018 at Newmarket Racecourse. The event was proudly sponsored by Mattioli Woods plc and Greene King with their Old Speckled Hen brand. The skies were threatening all sorts of unpleasant weather on Saturday, but Sunday couldn't have been better.
We were honoured to have the British GT Championship driver Graham Davidson with us for the whole weekend as part of the Mattioli Woods plc display in the Millennium Grandstand. He even brought his Aston Martin V12 Vantage along with him, fresh from a podium finish at Snetterton the weekend before and visitors were even allowed to sit in the car for photos.
We were very pleased to welcome dealers and franchises from the region; Cambridge MG, Crown Garage Honda, EMG Kia, Cambridge Tesla, Rawlinson Mitsubishi, Cambridge Audi, Cambridge Subaru, Cambridge Ducati & EMG Mazda, along with specialists such as; CBS Automotive, Torque & Talk Owners Club, Wallis & Son, Jules Sturgess Automotive & Van System.
The collection of exotic cars was impressive; a black Porsche Carrera GT, a spectacular Aston Martin Vanquish Red Arrows Special Edition (1 of only 10!), a CAV GT40, two Ferraris, a whole brace of Aston Martins, a Jaguar E-Type FHC, two TVRs, several Lotus examples and a Jensen Interceptor!
We learned that a Tesla Model X could 'dance', sort of, much to the amusement of our visitors on Sunday. Two talented visitors drove the fastest lap times on our driving challenge simulators and won a karting experience for 4 at Red Lodge Karting.
We all had a great time, welcomed thousands of wonderful visitors and walked so many miles every day that we are seriously considering investing in a fleet of Segways for next year! Our sincere thanks to all those involved, the exhibitors, the sponsors, the venue team, the food caterers, the attraction stall holders and traders. But most of all, a huge thank you to the visitors that came along to the show and gave us such positive feedback. It is for you specifically that we will return next year, bigger and better.
On behalf of Red Dot Events and Iliffe Media, thank you. Thank you all.
