At the beginning of the year, none of us thought 2020 would turn out quite the way it has. It’s been sad to see so many of our favourite motoring events cancelled. But it’s also been interesting to witness how businesses and events have adapted. We feel extraordinarily grateful that so many of our South Downs Secure clients have been able to enjoy the beautiful West Sussex countryside over a splendid summer. But, winter is coming, and many of you will tuck your vehicles away into car storage for the season. So, we thought it seemed an appropriate time to write a post highlighting some virtual motoring events and online resources.
Virtual Motoring Events & More
The British Motor Show:
The British Motor show may have been cancelled this year but the organisers launched a new concept for your automotive enjoyment. The Virtual Motor Show took place in August, but the good news is that you can still visit. The website has a whole host of exhibitions for you to view. We particularly enjoyed the Supercar Area and the Classic Car Halls.
An Epic Road Trip:
If you were unable to take your overseas trip this year, you’ll be pleased to know that the good people at GoCompare have put together a virtual motoring event like no other. Check out their guide to the world’s best virtual road trips HERE. You might choose to escape to Arizona and the splendid scenery of the Grand Canyon or perhaps you’ll prefer the thrill of the Trollstigen road in Norway and its eleven hairpin bends. There are ten road trips to take in total… That should keep you busy.
A Museum Visit:
Lots of museums have launched online exhibitions this year. But for any motoring fan a quick visit to the Porsche Museum is a great way to start. You might want to skip the coffee shop… Head straight to the exhibition halls for a 360-degree view. Visit the museum HERE.
Add to your Collection:
Silverstone Auctions final sale for 2020 will take place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th November. The online event offers a superb selection of classic cars to the market via a live auction. Find out more HERE.
Close to our West Sussex Home:
Our beloved Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival may have been cancelled this year but that hasn’t stopped the innovative events team at Goodwood from bringing us an outstanding virtual motoring event this year. Goodwood SpeedWeek takes place from 16th to 18th October. Billed as a “one-off, interactive, three-day motorsport and technology extravaganza”, we are quite sure that Goodwood will deliver more than they promise. Find out more about the event HERE.
We hope you enjoy some of our virtual motoring event recommendations. In the meantime, if you would like to find out more about the car storage solutions we offer at South Downs Secure, contact us here.
