Hendy Open Day Attracts Record Number
A packed day of high-octane action at the Hendy Performance Open Day attracted thousands of motoring fans to Thruxton Motor Circuit at the weekend.
The annual open day was bigger than ever before, with hundreds of cars on display and more than 6,000 fans, who were entertained by high-speed action on the track, stunning sports, classic, and new cars and celebrity guests.
“This year our combination of motoring attractions and family entertainment was a winning formula,” said head of brand performance Harry Pearson. “This is our third year hosting the event at Thruxton, which is the ideal venue to offer a wide range of activities and attractions.”
Highlights of the day included on track action from Hendy Ambassadors, as well as precision driver Paul Swift, and more than 600 static displays from performance car enthusiasts who showcased everything from Fords to Ferraris.
The open day also provided the perfect backdrop for Hendy to showcase some of its sports and performance brands from across the group, including Maserati, Lotus and MOKE.
New cars turning heads at the show included the Maserati Gran Turismo and Lotus Eletre, both attracting an excitable stream of admirers throughout the day.
The new family fun area was a huge hit with children of all ages and Harry said there had been tremendous feedback from visitors on the day.
“Our aim was to provide plenty of entertainment for families with a focus on motoring but lots to amuse children of all ages too,” said Harry. “We had some incredible cars on display, so our thanks go to all of the owners who showcased their own pride and joy for everyone to enjoy.”
