The British Motor Show initially slated for August this year has now been delayed till 2021 due to the current crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this point, we feel tempted to almost conclude that this year 2020 “never happened” due to the current disruptions of normal life activities by the Coronavirus pandemic. The sudden outbreak of the deadly disease led to the postponement of all our favourite sports games and now it has gone as far as causing the delay of one among our long-awaited motor shows. Yes, the popular British Motor Show has now been postponed to the next year 2021, with hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will be over by then.


Organizers have postponed the British Motor Show to 2021 due to Coronavirus pandemic

As last month, we were still revealing how the Coronavirus is affecting automobile companies around the world, now it’s gone even beyond delaying car debuts to causing the postponement of Motor shows. Even the popular bike race Isle of Man TT 2020 has also been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

After about a decade since the last British Motor Show was held, many car lovers are already anticipating the return by August this year at Farnborough, Hampshire in England. Unfortunately, a new statement posted by the show organizers on their website has now publicly announced the postponement until 2021 ☹.

According to the organizers, all tickets purchased for the event this year 2020, will still remain valid by August 19 to 21 next year which the show is expected to be held. The organizers have also promised that people who already purchased tickets for the British Motor Show this year will be allowed entry to the upcoming “Cars & Christmas” event this November. This proposed event is described by the organizers as a smaller version of the popular motor show which will comprise an “auto-related” indoor marketplace as well as a beautiful live arena to watch renowned stunt driver, Paul Swift alongside other celebrity guests.
