LONDON COBRA SHOW Raffle and Show to benefit Cystic Fibrosis

Auction Information

The London Cobra Show is open ONLY to 1960’s era Shelby Cobra Roadsters, Daytona Coupes and the Ford GT40, both replicas and originals. If you love these extraordinary sportscars, then the London Cobra Show is the place for you, where you will meet a large group of people from varied backgrounds, ages, and stories, all having a common bond – a love of these special and unique sportscars. These distinctive sportscars are what originally brings everyone together, but it is the shared experiences and friendships developed that brings everyone back year after year after year.

Although it is called the London Cobra Show and Raffle, or simply LCS, most of the events on Thursday and Friday take place in and around Dublin, a suburb northwest of Columbus, OH. This is due to a desire to have all LCS attendees stay in a single hotel, as well as a lack of adequate lodging in London. For 2022, the host hotel and venue will be the Columbus Marriott Northwest Hotel located at 5605 Blazer Parkway, Dublin, OH. Please see the HOTEL section for information on the Columbus Marriott Northwest hotel.

Various activities and cruises take place from Thursday evening through Saturday night. Click on the EVENTS tab for additional information. The main events take place on Saturday, beginning with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department escorting the Parade of Cobras from the Speedway Truck Stop, near the southwest corner of I-70's exit 79, along an approximately 10 mile long parade route into downtown London.

Shortly after 9:00 am on Saturday morning, the Cobras will slither and rumble onto London’s north Main Street. Once the Cobras have been parked and the opening ceremony completed, visitors will be able, for a $10.00 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, to take charity rides in a Cobra.

The Saturday portion of the show in downtown London is free to all visitors so they may view the Cobras, speak with the owners and visit the many vendors displaying their products in Gasoline Alley, which is located on Main Street directly in front of the Madison County Courthouse. On hand will be the major manufacturers of build-it-yourself component Cobra replicas, as well as suppliers of turnkey minus Cobra replicas that are complete with paint, interior, wheels, tires, but without the drivetrain. Also having their products on display will be engine builders, transmission suppliers, and agents for component car insurance, suppliers of Cobra and Shelby memorabilia, tee-shirts and hats, as well as the Ohio Cobra Club selling chances for their Cobra raffle. Visitor parking is free along London’s city streets.

Main Street, south of the courthouse, will also be closed for the London Strawberry Festival which takes place concurrently with the London Cobra Show. You may view details of the London Strawberry Festival by clicking HERE.
