There are only 12 days until Fast Show arrives; the first official show of the season which welcomes everything from track monster Skylines to slammed Polos. The diversity of cars at Fast Show is amazing, everyone from every different scene attends and all are treated equally.
It is clear how much work goes into such machines – from complete engine rebuilds and up-rated aftermarket engine parts, to re-sprays and hydraulic installs. People from across the UK attend the show starter and this year’s show has been set back an extra month. Why? Due to the British weather being so indecisive that it rained, hailed and snowed all on the same day at Fast Show 2013 – that’s why! The fields where bogged down, cars were being towed out and general disappointment was on everyone’s face.
So after, much deliberation, the Santa Pod Raceway team decided that this year’s show will take place a month later than normal to try and dodge the uneasy weather that sits in the early months. This year Fast Show is taking place on the 23rd of March, meaning that good weather should be in order on the day.
Early starts are predicted for the Santa Pod team with so much going on! Podkhana will be a site to attend for all those side-ways people – Santa Pod’s own version of Gymkhana but at Pod – quite a fitting title. The strip will be seeing a variety of cars from all makes going head-to-head with the occasional appearance of the might Fire Force Team, jet powered, funny car – never seen it before? Take a look at the sheer power this machine has – Fire Force Jet Car.
Autoglym will also be in attendance with their show car paddock, allowing anyone with a clean example in, no matter what make, model, age or engine size as long as it is show car worthy! Why not? With 6 trophies up for grabs everyone’s in for a chance to win from “Best Interior” to “Judge’s Choice”.
With 83 clubs in attendance for this year’s show, the “Best Club Stand” prize is going to be a challenge for our friends over at Performance Direct who will be picking a winner. The club that champions will be going home with the “Best Club Stand” trophy and a £250 cheque! Who will walk away victorious? Find out on the day!
For those who are voyaging a greater distance, Santa Pod have covered for over-night entertainment taking place on the Saturday night with the likes of DJ Richie Don taking to the limelight to play some of his old time classics, mixed with a few newer additions.
The day itself is looking to be a blast with the weather slowly improving and the line-up getting better, Fast Show 2014 will be the perfect season opener!
