Please find attached pictures from our stand and the live arena of the UK’s ( Europe’s ) premier motoring show, ”Autosport International”. The pictures were taken by our staff as an indication to our show activity, sorry for the poor quality at this time.
The event was held for 4 days as usual with the worlds motorsport industry in attendance in all shapes and sizes.
We presented a Time Attack Series and JapaneseUsedCars.com EDC stand throughout all 4 days of the show to demonstrate the professionalism of the events and cars to the motorsport trade and public and to publically announce our full calendar for 2008.
As well as promotional and information items about our events and sponsors, our stand consisted of the Garage Whifbitz RX7 Time Attack car as well as
2007 EDC Champion Brett Castles Nissan S14, with both cars attracting huge attention throughout the course of the show.
In addition to the stand we also presented 5 Time Attack cars in the show’s ”Live Action Arena” which is where various forms of motorsport are displayed ( including F1/WRC/FIA GT cars and drivers ) to a paying crowd of thousands. This gave us a fantastic opportunity to show the might and power of the cars along with accurate commentary to explain why Time Attack is different from racing and how vibrant the aftermarket is in presenting this form of motorsport. The cars in the arena were : Scared Stiff’s Lotus Elise, RC Developments Evo 6, J’s Racing Honda DC5, Nadine Geary’s Dodge Viper and MAD Developments Evo 6 of Kev Atkins.
The show was a huge success, although we also attended in 2007, this year we were greeted with far more warmth as the market finally recognises drifting and Time Attack and the professional and promotional offerings they have and how they stimulate the aftermarket and now racing scene as a whole within Europe.
Our stand and vehicles carried the new 2008 sponsor liveries as seen in the pictures as well as a display of Toyo’s tyres which are eligible for the Time Attack Series. To mark the occasion Toyo also made a special one-off tyre which was grooved with our Time Attack logo, this tyre attracted a lot of attention from curious people, prompting further questions about the tyres and the Series which was fantastic.
Next week our promotion continues as we travel to Spain to present a live demonstration of drifting at the MotorShowFestival in Zaragosa ( www.motorshowfestival.com ). We will have 4 JapaneseUsedCars.com EDC cars in attendance at this show, travelling by race-truck which attracts a genuine 110,000 visitors over 3 days. We will give you a report of that event upon our return from this exciting trip deep into Europe.
