So, with show season over for another year we thought we’d do a little roundup. We attended quite a few shows this year, including Ford in the Park, Trax, Ford Fair, Japfest 2 & Ford Fest as well as going to the Autosport show. (As you can probably tell, we own Fords here) We have also had a new look website which we are still yet to use regularly! (Our bad)
2015 was also the year we had our first club stand at one of the biggest shows of the year; Trax. We had a great turnout of around 25 cars which were invited so that we could ease ourselves into organising stands. We shall be doing even bigger stands next year so keep your eyes open!
So Ford In The Park, which is one of the shows we blogged about was the show season kick off for us, and was also the first year for the show, they’ve announced a date for next year too, I expect that it’ll really grow to become a nice social and chilled out Ford Show. The vibe compared to Ford Fest & Ford Fair is much more relaxed, which is a great way to ease yourself into show season! The guys at Midlands STOC really did do well!
We also attended Ford Fair & Ford Fest, it was another first for Ford Fest, which was held at Santa Pod. Another great show with loads to see and do, including watching old Escorts do wheelies on the drag strip and seeing the Jet car! Ford Fair is a must for us each year, its undoubtedly the biggest Ford Show of the year, held at Silverstone. Again there is so much to see and do there, it would probably be better to hold it over Saturday and Sunday rather than just Sunday! Plenty of on track action and much more.
Japfest 2 was a first for us. Not owning a jap car or a stanced car means we do miss out on some great shows, so we will be aiming to hit some of these up net year! Japfest was held at Rockingham, it was another great show, helped by the great weather with plenty of performance cars and turbos on show!
We also had a couple of photo shoots with Will’s RS and Hugo’s Civic, something again we want to build upon next year and get some more brilliant cars featured on the blog!
If you have any shows you want to see us at next year, or if you need some help setting up a new event, get in touch with us, we’d love to help out! 2016 will be another big year for us and we look forward to seeing what you guys have been up to over winter with your cars!
