Bell Sport and Classic closed out the summer season at the weekend with a final drive-in cinema screening. The popular events, held over recent weeks at the company’s new showroom and workshop complex in Markyate, Hertfordshire, have attracted a broad range of classic and supercars, taking in films and F1 race action.
Invited guests have been permitted on-site for each socially distanced event, the broad selection of owners bringing a host of classic cars and supercars. Bell Sport & Classic specialises in the restorations, sales and servicing of Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini, as well as other leading performance marques, and the cars have reflected the company’s diverse client base.
Customers enjoyed evening screenings of Baby Driver and Rush last weekend, as well F1 in the afternoon, with morning events for children and families with showings of Paddington. The final weekend – 12 and 13 September – played host to an exclusive screening on the Saturday, held with Four Marks Supercar Owners Club. Then on the Sunday, Bell Sport & Classic staged its inaugural Concours event, with a selection of the finest classic and performance cars displayed across the dealership’s lawns.
The event was supported by a number of partners and sponsors including Louis de Soisson, Herts Tool Company, Four Marks Supercar Owners Club, the Ferrari Owners Club, Supercar Driver and Drivers Union.
The big screen event easily complied with Government guidelines on social distancing as customers were able stay in their car or pitch up next to it with a deck chair.
Tim Kearns, Managing Director of Bell Sport and Classic said: “It has been a genuine pleasure to open our doors and share our showroom and site with customers, their families and some great cars in recent weeks. The concept of a drive-in cinema has been a fantastic success and we look forward to potentially doing more of the same as soon as we can.”
