CPOP 2015

10th, 11th and 12th June 2016 CPOP 2015 has been a huge success, over 65,000 visitors attended, thanks to an action-packed programme of best-ever content on land, air and water. Out on the track, it was the Force PC, driven by Gary Thomas, which got the fastest lap of the weekend with a time of 58.34. He took the prize for post-‘66 competitors. For pre-‘66, it was Andrew Smith in the Cooper T43 who was quickest, with a time of 65.80. The most consistent car of the weekend was the Chevron B48, driven by Damon Milnes, who received the Bentley Coupe D’Honneur, with Tony Haywood on the Norton Rotary claiming the award for the most consistent motorcycle. The three-day extravaganza included the last display over Cheshire of the Vulcan, the RAF Typhoon display, Red Bull Matadors and BAC Strikemaster which all thrilled crowds of all ages throughout the weekend. Dougie Lampkin kept the crowds captivated with his showcase of incredible bike control skills across the site, including on a pontoon obstacle course on the lake and on bales surrounding the track itself. He even jumped his bike over commentator Andy Kershaw. Elsewhere, rib rides, hoverboards and flyboards entertained crowds by the lake and scramblers showed off their skills on the off road circuit. After three strong concours events across the weekend – Lotus cars, American muscle and Eighties supercars – it was the 1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S, owned by Adrian Marshall, that took the highest accolade and was named best overall concours entrant. James Hall, event director said: “It’s been an incredible weekend, with what is without a doubt our best ever content. As a result, this year saw us achieve our biggest ever crowds, with numbers of over 65,000. We’d like to thank everyone involved in making this year’s event such a success and look forward to welcoming competitors, visitors and exhibitors alike back to CPOP in 2016.”
