Will CPOP return?

Shares

The last time Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (renamed Cholmondeley Power and Speed) welcomed visitors was June 2016.

The event didn’t make an appearance last year, and it won’t be staged this year either.

A holding statement on the event website states: “CHOLMONDELEY POWER AND SPEED IS NOT BEING STAGED IN 2018 WHILST PLANS ARE MADE FOR THE LONG TERM SHAPE OF THE EVENT.”

It adds: “WE HOPE TO SEE YOU IN 2019.”

Since 2008 it has been the aim of the ‘Pageant of Power’ to showcase the best of historic and contemporary automotive power, whether on land, water or in the air.

Central to the action at ‘CPOP’ is the 1.2 mile track within the park grounds of Cholmondeley Castle, where over 120 cars and bikes compete, spanning seven decades of motorsports.

On the estate’s lake, the pageant hosted world champion jet ski demonstrations and other activities.

In the air, over 150 privateers flew in to Cholmondeley with numerous air displays and helicopter rides taking place.

We’ve tried to contact the event organisers for a more detailed update on their plans, but there was no answer.

The CPOP website is: www.cpop.co.uk
