The advance tour offered media and key persons introductions to top manufacturers, unprecedented access to the supercars, demonstrations of vehicle highlights amongst and other notable event components. The weather held and after the walk-through, we enjoyed a light lunch and beverages. Unfortunately, the Veuve Clicquot lounge had not been set-up so we were out of luck for some afternoon bubbles!

The Red Bull Lounge was surrounded by supercars that had dressed for the occasion. Wraps were incredibly popular this year, including the one below which was the most contentious vehicle on display. Lingering nearby, I heard many viewers become quite vocal about the blasphemy that had been committed against this car. | Images by Helen Siwak
