As I attended last year I've received an email direct from MSV offering a free car display entry ticket for the Sunday. Has anyone else? Anyone thinking of going? Was Scorchio last year.....

I think this would be the weekend prior to any Euro trip that Dimer and Bas might get going. Believe they are planning one at the moment..

You need to "book" this yourself Clive

the email was sent out to anyone that had attended previously..

unfortunately a change in circumstances means Ross of the Supercar Siege team is having to take a step back this year, but MSV has opened an invite to qualifying hypercars, supercars and classics! so no complicated procedure to get the money to the charity, just enter car and driver for free, and buy passenger tickets



Dear Display Vehicle Owner,

Happy New Year!

As you are a past attendee of the Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe (https://brandshatch.msv.com/BH-19-Blancpain) series at Brands Hatch Circuit I wanted to give you priority information on the vehicle display for 2019. Blancpain will be held on the 4th & 5th May 2019; with the annual vehicle display taking place on Sunday 5th May.

We have just launched the display registration site which you can access here: https://shop.msv.com/DisplayCar (https://shop.msv.com/DisplayCar%20)

This year tickets are FREE OF CHARGE for the display vehicle and driver; any additional passengers will need to purchase a ticket. Please note spaces in the display are allocated at the discretion of MSV, the vehicle should be suitable for the display i.e. ‘Supercars, Hyper-cars or Classics’ and you must arrive in the vehicle you book with.

For assistance in using the display booking site please click here (https://msvstatic.com/documents/Display%20Vehicle%20Booking%20Site%20Guide.pdf) to view our ‘How To’ guide.

Yes clicking on the link didn't work. Copy and paste it into another window and it should be fine. That's what I did.

It wouldn't allow THNOC members to sign in as it stated waiting for the club to be authorised so I entered under "supercars" and it recognised my car from last year and accepted entry confirming via email.

.. i did only put the request in friday afternoon... they were probably out of the office and at home by the time it get to them!

oh, and before any shouting, it's not exclusive to THNOC members, MSV just wanted me to put something in the box!

I've had an email confirmation this afternoon that they've decided to put my car in with the hypercars, I suppose they must have fallen in love with the Ayrton Senna wrap, model cars and under car lights when they saw it last year. 👏👏

Maybe I'll now be given a hypercar plaque/poster to put at the front of the car stating it's now worth £1,000,000 and also get to take part in the hypercar display laps.👍

Don't worry chaps I'll always give you permission to step over the roped off area to look at my car. 😂😂😎

Does anyone know if there are any planned meeting points around the southern part of the M25?

Does anyone know if there are any planned meeting points around the southern part of the M25?

Last year I met up with 10 or more super and hypercars at Cobham services between 6.30 and 7am

I'm sure it will happen again this year, I'm just waiting for my contact to let me know.

I've got to say it was an amazing experience and quite unique travelling along a relatively quiet M25 with 2 Konniseggs a beautiful black P1, Pagani Huwyaaaaya and a Le Ferrari all swapping lanes while taking it in turn to blast past and then slowing down again to allow each of us to admire the moving works of art in action, plus of course the usual "run of the mill" Porsche, Lamborghini's and Ferrari's.

Everyone seemed very friendly and hospitalable with so many great comments to say about my NSX which was great to hear. I believe Bruno Senna was in one of the hypercars, although at the time I was unaware of that. As Britlude mentioned after the event, Bruno 13692gave me a like on his social media platform, cool.👍

I'll post a message on here as soon as I know for sure.

There is a rumour, but it is only a rumour, that there will be again this year a gathering of super & hypercars between 6.30-7am preparing to head off towards Brands to arrive about 8

If you don't mind going out of your way (I'm setting out from Crawley) and getting up earlier than you might need to then I can assure you it's an experience not to be missed if they are meeting up there but if not I will be there anyway.

well, the weather was kind, all be it with a chill wind, and we had 10 gen1 NSX and Pauls NC1 on the NSX patch, nicely in the middle of the site ;)

so thanks for those that made the effort to join us, nice to catch up with the owners again!

anyway... pix......
