Words & Photos by Henry Phull


Back in January I had a message from my friend Faz, the co-organiser behind Stance Fever, mentioning that he was putting on a bigger and better show for 2016. The event originally debuted at the Ace Cafe in London, then moved to Essex in 2015, so this year had to be something even bigger. Bigger is definitely the word… This year Stance Fever moved to the famous Rockingham Speedway in Corby, Northamptonshire. With plenty of excitement in the air, we decided to join forces and agree to attend with our pop-up store for this years show. Plus, it was the first outing for our new Audi A6 Avant hauler, even if it did break down on the way home, but I won’t bore you with the details. Take a look at our highlights from the day – the mix of cars was quite something, with a huge variety of marques catered for.

Our pop-up store… Catch us next at Eurosunday in Belgium!


There you have it, everything from bagged Ford Fiestas to classic Toyota Soarers, Stance Fever had it all. As usual, a big thank you to anyone that came down to our pop-up store for a chat or to take home some apparel, it’s always a pleasure. With this event getting bigger every year, I can’t wait to see what the team have in store for us next year. Make sure you pencil it in your diaries for 2017. We’ll be back out this weekend for our first European show of the year, Eurosunday in Belgium on Sunday 29th May.
