Motor Show 2010 fails to even get into first gear
The motor industry have all but confirmed that there’s no immediate end in sight to the car sales crisis with NEXT year’s British International Motor Show cancelled for the first time since 1939.
The show, was supposed to be held at the Excel Centre in London’s Docklands next summer but has been called off 15 months early as the gloom surrounding the car industry deepens. Bad news for petrolheads and aspiring glamour models everywhere.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders have said that car manufacturers were unable to commit to appearing at the event, leaving them no option but to scrap what is the UK’s largest consumer exhibition.
It’s bad news but not the end of the world. However, if this downturn gets any worse and they end up cancelling the Ideal Home Show, the Chelsea Flower Show or any cheese rolling festivals, we’re going to go titting apeshit.
