In 2019, we launched the Supercar Socials events in Poole. A place for supercar, classic car and other enthusiasts to gather near the water on sunny evenings and talk about their passions. We had fish and chips on demand courtesy of Cobbs Yacht Club and Ellis Jones Solicitors. Although it proved so popular that we ran out half way through the evening (sorry about that). We also had over 100 awesome cars and a handful of motorcycles from across Dorset. Event the weather was absolutely beautiful at the first event. It was like a fairytale scene – how we wish all UK car events could be.
That cemented Supercar Socials as a must visit gathering for any petrolhead in their summer calendar. And we planned to make them a regular thing between March and September every year.
With grand plans, sponsors in place, food trucks at the ready and of course our now 200 strong following, it was looking like the 2020 motoring season would be off to a racing start. Dealerships signed up to bring some of their latest and greatest models and there was going to be a Radical Autoworks live wash bay also. The only thing out of our control was the weather … and rampant, world conquering viruses of course.
Obviously we had to cancel the first few events – 200 people and 100 cars is a big gathering. That was March, April and May down in quick succession. June is now unlikely and July, August and September are in jeopardy. With restrictions lifting slowly, we’re unlikely to be allowed to hold any large events in 2020. We’ve not written it off though so watch this space and sign up to receive emails about the events here.
Depending on lockdown rules, we may hold some events later in the year to make up for the lost summer ones. We just need a suitable place to hold them, ideally that’s covered incase of rain. If you know of a place then get in touch. If you know anyone at the RNLI that can help us hold the events at their enormous boat shed, please let us know.
We’re already looking forward to the 2021 events also to make them bigger and better than ever.
Supercar Socials Exclusive evenings
As well as the Supercar Socials events, we’ll be holding some smaller, invite only, special events at our workshop as soon as we’re able. These will be a chance to meet the team, see what happens behind the scenes when we look after your car and to meet other like minded people. As these events will be smaller, we might be able to hold them sooner. Please let us know if you’re interested in attending one of these events.
