Here's hoping they find a way to combine the drive-in format with a static display!

Best of both worlds!

Regardless, I'm sure the show will be awesome like the past years' demonstrations!

Waiting with baited breath for tickets to come on sale... :shock: (that's supposed to be eyes bugging from holding my breath)

It has killed me missing the past two years. The line ups were great, particularly 2020 (Great work made that happen but unrealistic to ever expect the like again).

That said, I do hope they figure out how to bring back a static display. I rather enjoy touring the static, and well each static is another opportunity for some arrival and departure shenanigans (Cleetus etc etc).

Fully vaccinated, now with a booster in the offing I am hoping to make the 2022 show whichever the format.

Looks like London will be the drive- in format once again in 2022.

Not the decision I wanted, but I can completely understand the rationale. Proven track record and best chance of surviving any protocol changes should the pandemic continue to negatively evolve.

Will be curious to what variations they add.

I would call the past couple years a success, however I do miss not having a static display.
