OVER 60 supercars are set to park up in Baildon for a charity display showcasing everything from Ferrari and Lamborghini to Aston Martin.

The car show is being organised by celebrity tour manager Jason Holman to raise awareness of mental health and suicide.

The show, at SRS Automotive in Sapper Jordan Rossi Park, is in memory of the late Sophie Gradon who appeared in the second series of Love Island.

Members of 'Leeds Supercar Meet' will take part in the event on Sunday, June 9 from 8:30am to 1pm.

Mr Holman has personal experience of losing friends and clients to suicide, which is why he has chosen to support nearby mental health charity Leeds Mind.

The tour manager was long term friends with Sophie Gradon and has also worked with Mike Thalassitis of Love Island fame, both of whom have died by suicide.

Mr Holman said: “In December 2017 a friend of mine, model Simone Linsell died by suicide, one of the most beautiful women I have ever met who just couldn’t cope any longer and this really shook everybody in the entertainment industry.


“After a two-week tour in March of 2018, where great fun and laughter was had, actor Verne Troyer went back to his home of LA and a few weeks later he left us, this really had an enormous impact on me personally, we had worked together for seven years and become good friends over that time.”

The event is supported by Leeds Supercar Meet partners 'The Cannonball Run Europe' who will be bringing their McLaren 720s on the day.

The Police Interceptors will also be making an appearance and filming at the event which will later feature on the Channel 5 show.

Visitors can also help boost funds by entering the raffle with prizes including: a genuine ‘Maserati’ aluminium cast wall sign, two tickets to a show of your choice at the Leeds First Direct Arena, a two night stay at the Park Plaza London Riverbank, detailing package from SRS Automotive to the value of £1500 and two passes to the British CT with Alex Toth-Jones.

Gemma Green of Leeds Mind added “Suicide is sadly a common theme in the public eye and Jason’s motivation and passion for this event is clearly fuelled by his own personal experiences. We are proud to be the beneficiary of this special and unique event and can’t thank Jason and all involved enough.”

Gates open at 8:30am with the supercar convoy arriving at 8:15am. Entrance is free however there will be a chance to give donations to Leeds Mind.

People can also donate via Just Giving.
