Ultimate Stance 2015

Location: Telford International Centre, Telford

Flashback to the beginning of the month, the cold weather had returned, and the car community was out in force for the final outing to Ultimate Stance. This year’s show was rather special for us, as we launched our very first pop-up store with a new clothing collection. For the first time ever, we were trading! Luckily our girl Steph was on hand to help out with some awesome photography so we could provide the quality show coverage you’re all used to. As per usual, the Ultimate Stance organisers pulled out all the stops to provide a jam-packed show before the long Winter break. Wheel Whores also took over with their very own mini show and swapmeet, in addition to their super-cool ‘Tikes & Trikes’ display. To top that off, a huge Show & Shine with over 500 cars, club stands and extensive traders! Ultimate Stance is much like sister-company Ultimate Dubs, but targeted at a much wider audience. All sorts of cars were welcome, and even though it was the last show of the year, there were still cars making their debut! Check out our round up below…

As you can see, the turnout was tastefully varied. Embracing communities like Retro Rides, Hayburner and Driftworks to name a few, really proves that when those from different automotive backgrounds come together, the result can be epic. Unlike most shows, Ultimate Stance is one of the most open events for all sorts of car enthusiasts, despite its name! Our pop-up store was a great success, and we can’t thank our friends at Studio Incar enough for teaming up with us for the joint stand in the exclusive carpeted hall and displaying some insane builds. We’ll be trading at a lot more shows next year, so now you know what our stand looks like – come and say hi! If you missed us at this time, all our new gear is now available online from store.slamsanctuary.com, so have a browse. For more event coverage, we’ll be back next year in March with Ultimate Dubs at the same location. Until then, we’ll be keeping the blog updated with new features and behind-the-scenes shop visits. Check back soon.

Westside Treffen 2015


 

Date: 27 September 2015

Location: Chalfont St. Peter Cricket Club, Bucks

 
 

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Here at Slam Sanctuary we attend our fair share of car shows, but there’s one particular event that more and more people are starting to recognise, which still remains a major annual highlight for us. It’s the perfect show to wind down the season with a chilled out and more relaxed vibe which it has become famous for. The end of September means one thing to us… Westside Treffen. Held in the lush grounds of the Chalfont St. Peter Cricket Club just outside of London, you can rest assured that you’ll be in for a day of mint condition classic Volkswagens, in addition to a whole host of other glorious German metal, plus a few wildcards thrown in here and there. Perfectly cut grass, a well organised layout, great people and incredible food – Westside never fails to put a smile on my face. Let’s take a look at the stunning cars that caught my eye this year…

For a Volkswagen orientated event, Westside have continued to allow more and more non-VAG examples into the show each year. The way I see it is, if you want people to attend you need to let in the cars that are being built (and surprise surprise… they’re not ALL Volkswagens!). As the show continues to grow (with a record breaking full capacity by 11am), the venue has remained at the perfectly sized Chalfont St. Peter Cricket Club. This means there’s time to actually relax and check out the whole show at your own pace. Car events are becoming so big now that you rarely get to see everything, which is what makes Westside so enjoyable and niche. If you’re thinking of bringing family to a car event, or looking for the best chance to catch up with friends over some of West London’s best food, this is the place.
