World’s Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual ‘Secret’ Meetup

World's Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual 'Secret' Meetup

Owners of some of the world’s most sought-after supercars braved torrential rain and mud to show off their vehicles at an annual invitation-only event.

A Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition – one of only five in the world – were among the 200 high-performance cars on show at the ‘Secret Supercar Meet’, held at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground, Leicestershire.

The get-together, organised by supercar owners club Supercar Driver, raised nearly £5,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospital in Sheffield, which offers care and support to children with shortened life expectancy.

Event organiser Adam Thorby, owner of Supercar Driver, said it was a testament to the group’s members that the cars were on show despite the weather, which could potentially damage the vehicles.

He said: ‘The turnout from members was staggering considering the forecast which was heavy rain all day. You would be lucky to see any one of those cars out in the height of summer, let alone the full group in less than ideal conditions.

‘It is testament to our members who had committed to the event and have bought their cars to use them, whatever the weather.’

The fleet of vehicles, which boast a combined worth more than £20million, also included a Mercedes AMG 300SL that was custom made for the Sultan of Brunei.

Video: Why Rain And Supercars Don't Mix

Even for the most experienced of drivers, going fast in the rain is a risky activity. Th video below is pretty ugly, although we believe no one was hurt.

Not only that, but cars that have been very well designed to work with active aerodynamics can sometimes feel so planted in the dry that one could easily forget just how badly out of control they can get in the wet.

This video is a good example, as the McLaren 650S isn’t swerving or anything, and the driver appears to lose control for no reason.

We’re guessing that when the car in front of him moved over and the lane was cleared, he decided to speed up and simply put the pedal down a bit more than conditions allowed. It didn’t end well.
