It’s been a long, drawn out, winter for us at Slam Sanctuary. So, we were fully stoked to finally arrive at Ultimate Dubs in Telford last weekend for the ‘show season’ opener. Hosted over a Saturday evening and all day Sunday, it’s a great chance for friends to catch-up after being busy with their normal lives… With the majority of people staying overnight, there’s plenty of time for social gatherings, whether it’s over cars, food, or beers – unless you’re too busy setting up and running a stand, like us, unfortunately! That’s because we’ve been sitting on the brand new Spring ’17 clothing collection for a couple of months waiting to drop it on you all at Ultimate Dubs. Well, it went down an absolute treat – we can’t thank everyone enough for almost clearing out the whole store. In fact, we’ve already had to restock a lot of items, which should be available through our online store in a few weeks time. We also supported our good friends at Distinct Detail Co. with debuting their new brand of boutique car care products on our booth – they’re definitely a company to watch!

 

This year we displayed Ben Rye’s ’57 Beetle (which we recently featured), Jack Royston’s incredible Type 3 Notchback, and of course, (with us being us) we had to have a BMW on the booth… in the form of Jack Williams’ E28, which was finished just a couple of days prior! I’ll let the photographs do the rest, sit back and enjoy…

Yeah, yeah, I know… It didn’t seem like much of a ‘Dubs’ show, but let’s face it, that argument is getting old now. Times are changing, and there just aren’t as many people building Volkswagens anymore, or at least there aren’t many stand-out builds. Ultimate Dubs is much more of a trade exhibition these days, and if companies are building BMWs, Mercs, and Jap cars, then that’s what you’re going to see. We still did our best to showcase some of our favourite VAG examples, though – but we’re always going to photograph what captures our attention and what we feel is ‘cool’. We hope you all had a fantastic weekend if you attended, and you’ll be glad to hear that our next event will be entirely Volkswagen based, as we’re heading to The Volksworld Show on the 25/26th March!

FittedUK 2016 – Part 1

Date: 31 July 2016

Location: EventCity, Manchester

 

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

If you were to step inside FittedUK’s new venue for 2016, you wouldn’t believe that they’re only into their third year of putting on events. Now, I thought their show was big last year, but this time they’ve taken it to the next level and beyond by renting out EventCity in Manchester. That’s 28,000 square metres of indoor space, making it the UK’s biggest indoor car show… Quite a step up from Wetherby Racecourse, leaving a hell of a lot of space to fill with cars, traders and public ticket-holders of course. The FittedUK team have been promoting this year’s event throughout social media and constantly teasing us with photographs and videos showing off the size of the venue – so turning up on the day before the show to set up the Slam Sanctuary trade stand was an incredible chance to see it all come together and watch Alex and the team’s vision come into fruition. To be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect.. could they deliver on everyone’s high expectations? Well, sure enough Sunday morning arrived, the doors opened to the public, and rest-assured, people started flowing in. It was BUSY – all day long. Normally at shows, people tend to get bored towards the end of the day, but with an event this big – there was always something new to see. So much in fact, that we’ve had to split our photo coverage into two articles! So sit back and enjoy Part 1 below…

Having spent a few years visiting all the UK’s car events, the FittedUK team have realised what will and won’t work for the automotive calendar – mainly the fact that indoor shows are the future for this country due to such uncertainty with our weather. All their hard work that went into planning this event has well and truly paid off, and we’ve only shown you 50%! So make sure you check back to Slam Sanctuary later in the week to discover the second part of our coverage and the final words on the event. More cars, more halls and more platforms – how cool were those?!
