The display was not just a static lineup but one that saw the new Griffith take to the track for the Supercar Parade sessions on both Friday and Saturday, where accompanied by a 1965 Griffith and a stunning TVR Typhon all attracted great interest despite their time on track being heavily restricted.

Lined up two-by-two the cars headed onto the circuit for the parade however due to the level of traffic and safety rules applied, it resulted in little of the performance available being demonstrated thereby leaving much for a future event. There is however a short clip from inside the Griffith that can be viewed via this Link to youTube video and as seen from Trackside Shame about all the high fencing but that's Silverstone.
