The Show

VW Action is the longest running VW Show in the UK, and has in one form or another been the true ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of UK VW events, from its early days at Stoneleigh, the NAS Stoneleigh shows, the period of its residency at Peterborough, at Herts County Showground, and now at Santa Pod. The last three years at ‘The Pod’ have produced quite exceptional shows, and 2010 contunued the great tradition of VW Action delivering the absolute best event for the true VW enthusiast. VW Action is a show to which people are happy to bring their young family members, and yet which provides full on entertainment for all of its visitors, whatever their age or interests. Every year Action has a theme, and this year was an early Christmas

Went along to the NSRA Supernationals yesterday and it was an awesome day out. The weather was scorching and that always brings out the best cars. The show field was full before midday.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2010

As usual Goodwood Festival of Speed was epic in just about every way. I was lucky enough to help get one of the cars to this years event, Lord March had been reading the feature I shot of Steve Withers 32 for Custom Car and decided he would love to have it at the Festival of Speed.  I was able to put Julius Thurgood in touch with Steve and the arrangements were made. Steve’s cars was part of the Cars and Songs line-up on the cricket pitch and a troop of dancers performed to the theme of each car. The theme for Steve’s car was Little Deuce Coupe by the Beach Boys.  Also at the show were some famous rodders with their cars. Jeff Beck brought his 32 Coupe, Billy Gibbons brought Cadzilla and Eric Clapton brought a Shoebox Ford. Carrying on the songs and cars theme, you’ll see that some of the shots are inspired by a ZZ Top song.
