    The British Motor Show

    Event Title: The British Motor Show Event Author: VAD17 Event Date: 20.08.2022 The British Motor Show Thursday, Aug 18th - Sunday, Aug 21st, 2022 Farnborough International Exhibition Center This iconic show returned in a new format in 2021, celebrating all things motoring, past, present and future. We took all the things you love about cars and put them in one place. The British motor Show returns in 2022 with more cars, more entertainment and more fun. With an additional hall and even more entertainment, the show will be delivering a bigger and more action-packed fun family weekend! Home - The British Motor Show (see also further details in the attached file) New for 2022:• Additional halls • More driving experiences• Increased motorsport area• New automotive-themed game zone• Motorhome and Leisure zone• Extended Premier GT Supercar paddock• Additional Catering zones It looks like 2021 was a good show and suggest for next year we try to get a club stand. Even though its a 4-day event looks like its going to be more flexible: - we can change cars/ people on different days and have varying number of cars (i.e. 6 on one day; 8 on another, etc) - layout of the car club plot can be re-arranged depending on the number of cars we have; - cars can be taken home each day and returned on another day, or can be left and collected on the last day; - tickets may be free for this attending with the car club (although TBC) for car and driver (not additional passengers) Kevin (@The Minion) kindly offered to be there all 4 days and I am planning to be there Friday-Saturday. Ideally we would want to have a few people/ cars attending most of the days to have some club representation. Please let me know who would like to attend (and if you know days that would be great, if not you can decide later). Look forward to organising a club stand in 2022! 1. @The Minion 2. @VAD17 (Friday, Saturday) 3. @Hypnosis (Saturday, Sunday) BMS22 - Classic & Owners Enclosure.pdf The British Motor Show

  22. Its sad to be reading review like this (from @itsuki), but considering many of us from the UK have used Tuning Developments multiple times I feel compelled to chip in too. I have used them many times (first NA, then TD Turbo kit), and in fact all my major mods have been done or installed by Mike's team ( @Mike@TD.co.uk). Never had any issues and the service was always superb (had a manifold blow once, Mike fitted me basically next day and got it sorted pronto). Admittedly, I would go to Warrington myself and speak to Mike as to what I want/ what options are available, etc. I am not surprised reading "horror stories" about shipping recently. We have covid, brexit and particularly over November-December I had parcels lost, delivered 3-4 weeks later, etc (for example my new wheels were delayed, and then DHL notification arrived a week after the wheels themselves - go figure). Large number of satisfied customers hopefully will back me up with their 1st hand experience, although there would be an occasional story with unhappy ending (as I have heard with forged engine) - like with any business. Limited Google or FB reviews are not (probably) the representative sample, although anyone who feels they have to leave a 1* review should be listened to by the business aiming to improve their customer service. I hope with the move to new premises and increase of business Mike will also get someone to help with the customer service/ tracking shipping/ other admin and client communication stuff.

    Go Japan! - Brands Hatch

    Go Japan! Sunday, September 25th, 2022 Brands Hatch Circuit Brands Hatch celebrates all things Japan in September, with the return of Go Japan! The Kent circuit will bow to all things performance, power and modified from the Land of the Rising Sun, with thrilling on track action and big display areas. Track-prepared specials will fight to set the fastest outright lap times of the circuit in Time Attack, with this being a pure celebration of speed and performance. Japan was the birthplace of drifting, and the sport has boomed in popularity across the last two decades, with the Motorsport UK Drift Pro Championship being Britain’s highest professional category. Supremely skilled drivers will spend most of the lap sideways with the tyres billowing smoke in an effort to impress the judges. Further action will come from an all-Japanese line-up in the Civic Cup, with a grid full of saloon car battlers bound to put on a show. Meanwhile, themed car club display areas, show and shine competitions and trade areas will ensure there’s plenty to see off-track too!
