    First show of the year, perfect weather, a packed venue with some superb and interesting motors and our stand was overflowing!! So did I have a good day? Nah was cack! Not once did anyone plough into each other in balls of fiery death! I mean what do you think we come to this show for?!

    First show of the year, awesome sunny weather and as always fantastic cars! I have to say the lack of mad drivers was a bit of a let down... but thats just me. However the drifting session at 12 did have a Mk2 escort kiss another drift car, but it was minor and as normal with the drifters it barely slowed them down.

    The car variety was a bit more wide than previous years, I have no idea what this new iridescent lens coating is but there was a lot of ...

    Again from Ian:

    "My apologies for sending out a specific model request to all but its quicker for me to do it this way. Vauxhall are looking for Astra pictures to accompany an article in the Daily Mail. Tom Careless of Vauxhall PR explains the problem they have and how you or your members could help (and get in the Mail!).

    "Most of the pictures we have internally are staged promotional shots, while the Mail journalist thinks that in order for it to work he would like ...

    Ahh last show of the year at my favourite circuit and the first time my better half was able to join us to enjoy the awesome cars, epic fun but very unstable drifters and the normal racers who were running out of skill every 15 minutes or so!

    Thanks to our man Tintin we had an excellent parking spot near the competitors entrance in the main paddock, perfect location for accessing every aspect including the coffee stands which is ultimately the most ...

    Jap cars... like a LOT of jap hardware and plenty of air ride too which seems to be the weapon of choice for mega belly scraping low.

    Trax is always one of those shows that brings out the car modifiers with huge wallets or huge debt, the sheer amount of money and shiny things is awesome. Trax has a nice variety of modified cars surrounded by an awesome racing circuit with a style to suit almost every taste... yes that does include scantily clad young models who put ...

    Hey guys sorry about the delay in getting the report out, life got in the way. That being said every year the Retro Rides Gathering is one of the most unique and exciting events about so it's hard to forget (as long as you love old retro cars that is!).

    After a pothole dodging drive to the location at Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb you get instantly subjected to awesome old cars intermixed with weird and wonderful hardware you have never seen before and will probably never ...

    The annual VBOA rally! I don't know about you guys but this is one of the highlights of my car related calender, minimal chav, maximum variety and disgusting Hawaiian shirts; what else can one ask for? Ok ok MAYBE a car with a decent paint job in my case but that didn't stop me showing it and actually winning something that wasn't a special needs trophy!

    We kick started off on Friday with awesome weather and an eagerness to actually do some work, my job as some of ...

    You know how sometimes you have a bad feeling about a show? After reading the new rules set down by the new Performance/Total Vauxhall magazine owners I expected pandemonium, screaming, manic traffic, angry VXR owners, some guy running around in the background waving his arms in the air and cats and dogs living together..... but in reality aside from a bit of a rush to get in before the deadline everything worked out really well! The Sun was cooking everyone, we had plenty of new ...

    Well... it's the end of summer, the weather is getting dodgy and it's the last show on the MIG calendar - It's bound to go tits up right!?? Wrongo!

    We had a packed MIG show stand, all sorts of crazy powered metal, some epic (and often scary) racing, sunshine! and great friends.
    It was an early start for everyone and I arrived sporting a cool outfit, rusty Carlton and a mild coma. The action pretty much started as soon as I arrived, luckily for us all our cars ...

    Several weeks ago I think it's safe to say everyone in the UK had accepted that Summer was over and the last few shows were going to be cold, wet and miserable; and yet MIG seemed to pick the best year to return to Trax with a hot summer's day!

    Racing, drifting, lots of big power cars and some weird and wacky stuff too! The racing saw a few mishaps, a few drifters ended up in the sand trap and randomly one loosing a wheel! That's what happens when you let the apprentice ...

    MIG have been my hosts at VBOA Billing for 10 years and have never failed to impress, this year was no different. This was my first year as part of the MIG Admin team which as far as I could tell involved me wearing a funky MIG shirt with my name on (I am assuming so I couldnít forget it) and making strange hand gestures at members as they tried to park their cars, odd perhaps but never the less my fellow admin seemed happy with my performance.

    As always the calibre of memberís ...

    As with all car enthusiasts getting up at silly Ďoí clock on a Sunday for a car show poses no issues, even if you have only had 2 hours sleep thanks to a broken car the night before. I left the house at a little before 7am and was greeted with a burning hot sun Ė SPF30 isnít going to cut it today!

    Upon arrival I was greeted by my fellow MIG staff and members, Tintin had secured us a superb location this year and even though I had arrived early the flags were up and ...
