Pent-up demand. That’s what your local car dealer will tell you is the latest reason they can’t give you any discount. With things opening up in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, and us car lovers not able to meet up and see some new metal, pent-up is definitely what was experienced at one of the first post-lockdown motoring meets.
Several hundred cars descended onto a small industrial estate in Carnmoney for a Jacob’s Supercars Cars and Coffee day, and with cars backed up onto the main road it was fair to say owners and enthusiasts have been gasping through masks for a day out.
There was of course supercars as billed, with a stunning yellow Ferrari 488 Pista being the absolute highlight of the day, along with superb stands from Mini and Audi clubs among others.
Mixed but warm weather didn’t deter from the crowds that attended, although some eyebrows of course raised about both social distancing and local residents losing valuable kerb parking. We hope on both fronts this sounds worse than it was, and also indicative of the world at the moment. Should we? Shouldn’t we?
