The XR4Register at TRAX
We had only just got over the Town & Country weekend, when it was time for TRAX! A bright and early start it was, as Im sure some of our neighbours were woken up at 5.30am on Sunday! Its no joy being stuck on the A43 due to the queuing Trax traffic!
The early start was a bonus as we managed to get in without too much delay. It was nice to be back in the paddock. This used to be the home of the XR4
Register in the days of Les Gent. Ian had sorted us out a good spot again with ample space. It was nice to see some people there before us busy cleaning
their cars! Although it was a bit gloomy, the sun did come out but the wind was just too much and as soon as we put the flag pole up, we decided to take it down. Good job too as some of the traders marquees were lifting and ready to go skywards!
A few days prior to Trax, we had a call from Top Boss via Linzi to see if we had any extra space to accommodate Fitz and his 24V Cosworth powered RS. We had ample space so arranged the stand accordingly. However, we not only had Fitz, we had Steve, Martin, Lewis and Martin H too! So we had to squeeze 4
extra cars! A bit of shuffling later and it was all sorted! We were also
joined by new member; Phillip Lowery and his 2.9 XR4x4 powered P100 in Bright ORANGE!
Special appearances on our stand by the 'Bass Junkies' promo Girls and also Nikki Lee who had popped over to polish Mr Blings Plenum!. Many Thanks for visiting our stand.
The show was busy as usual and this year things were not too spread out.
There must have been lots to see and do for everyone as everybody was away from the stand for most of the day! Well, we guess the 0-60 was an attraction for some, the track action for others, the drifting demonstrations / competition certainly kept a lot of people busy for hours. There was a fair few traders too but not a lot to cater for our 'retro' or 'modern classic', unless you wanted an ICE system! But we guess there was a lot of different 'models'
Certainly a lot of cars on show with radical paint jobs, body kits and extra silly wheels to match! We even spotted a Hummer with 26 inch rims and what seemed like elastic bands as tyres! This show is certainly changing year on year and this year the massive presence by the Japanese cars overshadowed all others. Another Jap fest perhaps ?? Still everyone managed to enjoy the event and as long as people want to go, we, the XR4 Register will be there.
Thanks to all those that came along and made a day of it.
