The Strand in Liverpool city centre was closed off for several hours on 25th May to allow the organisers of the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power to put on a taster of what is in store for visitors to their main event on 17th/18th July and to coincide with the second birthday of the Liverpool ONE complex.Powerboats and jet skis in the Salthouse Dock, Breitling wing-walking displays over the Mersey and a multi-million pound assembly of road-going and race cars were on display outside the Hilton hotel. Up to 20,000 people were estimated to have lined The Strand to catch a glimpse of a variety of cars performing demonstration drags ranging from a Napier Bentley, Lister Jaguar, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo, Liverpool FCsponsored GP car, racing bikes and even a JCB dragster! It is hoped that this will not just be a one-off event, especially if the interest shown for this taste event can be sustained and built upon.
