Sustainable MotoExpo, due to take place on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th September 2013 at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu has been postponed and provisionally rescheduled to Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th April 2014.
A spokesman for Eco Motorsport, the event organisers, said,
“Whilst the decision to postpone the weekend has been a difficult one – it is the right one. During the final preparations for the Expo, we were notified of the postponement of one of its major attractions. We would rather move the event date, than disappoint visitors. It has always been our intention to deliver an Expo with innovative and exciting content that truly showcases the latest advances in green technologies, engineering and motor sport. We have a long-term business plan to make Sustainable MotoExpo an annual show for years to come, but to pull off such an event, we must ensure that all the key elements are in place as promised. We’d like to thank all of those who had committed to attend the weekend, and that have continued to support us with our decision”
The rescheduling has been welcomed by a number of organisations that were originally unable to attend. Firm commitments have been made by several leading businesses to showcase electric & hybrid cars , endurance, land speed, karting & Formula e racing cars and motorcycles. 2014 is a landmark year for several significant motor sport anniversaries, all of which will be recognised and celebrated at the event.
Engineering and education have always been at the heart of the Sustainable MotoExpo. The event will continue to have a strong presence from a number of Universities and Colleges with a focus on automotive and motorsports engineering, who will be exhibiting their latest research and technology.
