Look at the invitation carefully. See the letters R.S.V.P. Rings a bell? Also Doc's reply is rather cold. Even the ACI forum has a post regarding this event, but, it dosen't even have this invitation card. Because of all this, I'm more or less convinced that unless one has an invitation card, he or she won't be allowed near the cars. Stand on the road and wait.

It's a no-brainer. Option 2 for me. Will come to the supercar show only if I don't go anywhere.
My bet is, for the average motoring fan this supercar show will be the same as standing outside the Porsche showroom and staring at the Carrera GT. Nothing more. Otherwise, where are the advertisements? Where are the invitations?
With Pedder Road being made a one-way, who ever goes, best of of luck.
Peddar Road is back to being a two way since this morning.

That means they've worked very hard through the night coz it didn't look too good yesterday.
Anyway, the rally will go via Walkeshwar and Breach Candy.

Got this info from one of the organizers:

The invites are for owners who are exhibiting their cars and the participating teams. The display however is open for all to visit.

so probably those without invites will be behind a barricade or something and those with invites will get to be up close with the cars.

If one cannot see the display, the cars can very well be seen on Marine Drive during the parade. Would be a lovely sight. Can head out to some place after that for the race followed by lunch.
