'She Loved A Good Get Together' - Car Show Comes To Sandown In Memory Of Michaela

A new event for car lovers and petrolheads is to arrive at Sandown Airport in August, in memory of a much-loved and valued member of the Isle of Wight's modified car community.

The new event, which is set to take place on August 2nd, has been set up in memory of nineteen-year-old Michaela Logan, who sadly passed away in Arreton in January. 

The event - organised by Michaela's brother, along with members of the Wight Modified Facebook group - is open to cars of all makes, models, ages, and modifications.

There will be food and drink available at the show, including a barbecue and a licensed bar.

A raffle will also be held in aid of the Wight Brainy Bunch, a charity close to Michaela's heart, with prizes from JW Autoshine.

Social distancing will be in place at the event, and those heading to check it out are urged to drive safely both to and from the site. 

 

 

 

Speaking in a post on Facebook, Michaela's brother and event organiser, Tom Logan, said:

"Those who knew M knew she loved her cars, showing them off and any excuse for a meet but she LOVED a proper get-together.

"Selfishly Id rather not do big meets around the time she passed again but focus on her birthday where we can have a get-together and remember her in a positive way.

"We know you've all been mega busy working on your cars over lock down and now you finally have an excuse to get them out of hibernation and show them off."

The show will run between 12pm and 6pm on August 2nd. Find more information here
