It is Sunday morning and I have a little hangover, and I’m supposed to be going to the Sharnbrook Hotel supercar Sunday. I am exhausted as I had been at Salon Privé all day yesterday (Saturday), and I walked miles and miles around there and it was a fantastic day which you can read about it here. However, today I’m going to a much smaller event the Sharnbrook hotel.
I didn’t feel there was a need to rush about thankfully, because as I mentioned previously, I was a bit hanging.
I decided to leave the house at around 10:15 and by this point, I was kicking myself because I then realised that it has been really good to get a video shot of some other supercars coming to the supercar event at Sharnbrook. So riding along, and a quick look in the mirror, I see a Lamborghini but not just one Lamborghini a whole damn queue of Lamborghinis with a couple 911s and a really good-looking and Jeep which appeared to be keeping up quite well with the V10 animals.
I decided to slow down and let some of them pass so I could film with my head cam, I then spent the rest of the journey chasing them through the lanes. Due to my head cam setup and the fact, I am still playing around with it, there is a lot wind noise. You don’t really get to hear the bark from the supercars which is a bit of a shame, but this is something I’m going to work on to make sure that can try and cut out that terrible wind noise in the future.
The Sharnbrook hotel was meant to be a superbike and supercar day. However, when I got there, there were very few bikes, so much so I decided just to pop my tiger in with the general public and waddle around once again sweating my nuts off in full motorcycle protective gear.
There was a massive collection of supercars and seeing a Porsche 918 was fantastic, but it did not end there. There was a McLaren MP4-12c there was a number of Lamborghinis, obviously as I followed them into the show. There was also a McLaren 650s, a lot Maseratis and absolutely shed loads of Ferraris and a lot of Porsches from Boxsters, Caymans and 911s, all that was missing was a damn Mclaren P1!!!
There are a lot of great cars, always good to see a TVR or two, but I’m not sure if I put the TVR in the same category as a Lamborghini. Mind you, I’m not sure I would put a Porsche Boxster or even Porsche Cayman in the same categories as a Lamborghini or a Ferrari 458, however, they are all sports cars and cars that are out of reach for the average Joe…
I was expecting to see Lord Aleem again as I think he has been to this event previously and after seeing him give his new Porsche 991 Turbo S Cabriolet a run for its money at Blenheim Palace yesterday, I was hoping to have a closer look around…. No such luck…
I’ll definitely be heading back to Sharnbrook hotel supercar Sunday as it was a lot of fun is very busy, but it was well worth the drive up and if you happen to be on the same weekend again as the salon privy event, then it will definitely be well worth the journey up.
If you’re reading this and you are a Lamborghini owner and you would like to have a chat or talk to me about the owning of the Lamborghini, or flat matter any supercar. I would be really interested to hear your story as I think it’s not always about the supercar, but it’s about the driver is behind the wheel supercar. Thank you for reading in the hope you enjoy the future of this blog.
