Fast Show 2017 – Report
‘The First and Best Car Show of the Year’ sure lived up to its name! You flocked in your thousands to welcome the start of the show season with one hell of a Fast Show 2017! With a weekend packed full of electrifying and exhilarating entertainment both on and off the track, there was something for everyone, everywhere you looked.
The Autoglym Show & Shine competition showcased a vibrant and varied congregation of immaculate cars with some very impressive modifications. It was a tough decision process for the judges with some very high-spec vehicles on display. Congratulations to the overall winners who were as follows:
The ¼ mile played host to some fierce and hard fought competition with the first round of the FWD Drag Series and the RWYB competition seeing some very impressive runs on the dragstrip.
The FWD Drag Series ran on a 10 car field; Honda Civics seemed to be the weapon of choice in this first round. Paul Atkinson was our top qualifier with a notable time of 9.8728 at 150.56mph. With an astonishing 0.02 second difference semi-final, Luke Pritchard and Robert Lord were neck and neck with the final firmly in their sights! However, it was Luke Pritchard who went through to meet Allan Duthie in this year’s Round One final. At 148.66mph in 9.905 seconds, it was Allan Duthie and his Vauxhall Corsa who claimed the Winner’s trophy. Congratulations Allan, we look forward to Round Two!
Throughout the 4 classes of the RWYB competition, we ended up with positions being clinched by hundredths of a second. The results were as follows:
Fighting off some tough opponents and putting those driving skills of speed and precision to the ultimate test, Dmitrij Sribnyj in his stunning Subaru Impreza was the Winner of the first Handling Competition 2017; for a very impressive fifth year running!
If you blinked, you may just have missed it – Martin Hill piloting FireForce 5 certainly pulled out all the stops with his mind-blowing Jet Dragster performance, hurtling down the track in a jaw-dropping 5.07 seconds @306mph!!! The Broke FMX riders set the bar sky high in the Live Action Arena demonstrating heart-stopping stunts sprinkled with a heavy dusting of show stopping backflips! DJ Richie Don provided us with the perfect soundtrack to Fast Show 2017, featuring the fantastic South Church. With their energetic stage presence and unique talent, Bloxed Beats took to the Live Stage delivering an extraordinary performance of beatboxing gold to onlookers delight.
