The North West Supercar Club has apologised after they had to leave the Flag Market early on Sunday.Advertisement
Supercars from across the North West roared into the city on Sunday.
The event had been advertised by Preston City Council to run from 11am to 4pm, but the car club said due to the short notice a lot of car owners had other commitments so had to leave earlier.
Blog Preston had a number of comments, tweets and Facebook messages from unhappy car fans and families who had headed into the city to see the cars in the afternoon.
Claire Jackson tweeted to say they arrived at 2.30pm to find not a single car on the Flag Market.
A number of readers said their young children had been left disappointed at not being able to see the cars.
Phil Hulton from the club said the dark clouds building over the city also made many owners cover their cars up.
He said: “I can only apologise for everyone departing early and causing any disappointment.
“We were asked to put the display on by the City council at very short notice and most people who turned up with cars either had obligations later in the day or left when it began to rain due to having open top cars.
“Some cars were on site from as early as 8am with three cars coming from Leeds, so some effort was applied on the day.
“The Council set the times and we did our best to accommodate them.
“I have already spoken to the Council and ironed out all the creases for next year, which will give us plenty of time to organise the event fully and impose more realistic times for the show.”
The Preston Supercar Club have invited anyone who missed out to their next public meeting at The Phanton Winger pub near the Ibis Hotel in Fulwood.
A number of supercars will be on display between 9am and 11am on Sunday 20 July.
