Gravity 2017

Date: 16 July 2017

Location: NAEC Stoneleigh, Warwickshire

When I think of SlammedUK, variation comes to mind. Regardless of their name, the brand is essentially an open book when it comes to their following of modified cars, which is why their show ‘Gravity’ appeals to all sorts of cars in the community. Following the success of last year’s debut event, Gravity returned to Stoneleigh Park for a second year. I was seriously impressed with last year, but I have to say, the latest offering completely blew 2016 away in terms of cars, trade, music, and the sheer amount of public attendees. So, another congratulations is in order for Jordan and his team at SlammedUK! Whether you’re into Volkswagens, BMWs, Lowriders, RWBs, or Jap cars… the list goes on. Gravity had it all within two huge indoor halls, as well a vast outdoor area (apologies – our booth was so busy that I didn’t get a chance to photograph outside this time!). I managed to sneak around the show before it opened to the public to capture a few of our favourite cars. Take a look below…

What a selection of cars… (and yes, I’m aware there’s quite a few E46 M3’s in there, but with so many great examples in the scene at the moment, I couldn’t help myself!). I’d just like to say a big thanks to anyone that dropped by the Slam Sanctuary booth and picked up something in our exclusive Summer Sale. We pretty much sold out and we’ve finally said goodbye to our ‘Steering Wheel’, ‘Spark Plug’ and ‘Helmet’ tees – they won’t be printed again, however, we’ll be dropping a brand new capsule collection at FittedUK this weekend in Manchester, so make sure you stop by and check out the new gear. If you liked the previous collection, you’re definitely going to dig what we have coming up.

Edition38 Show & Shine 2016

Date: 2-4 September 2016

Location: Overstone Park, Northampton


Words & Photos by Henry Phull


It’s that time again… Edition38! This is probably the most anticipated show of the year for Volkswagen and VAG fans. It’s essentially a camping event held over a long weekend, the ideal opportunity to get together with friends and cars. Thanks to plenty of night-time entertainment, people treat it as a party weekend, followed by one of the best Show & Shines in the country at the end of it. Edition has grown so much, that each year I notice a stronger presence of cars that have travelled over from Europe. This year was no exception, as I was blown away by plenty of examples from the Netherlands, Belgium, and France which stood out from everything else – showing us Brits how it should be done. Now, due to the weather being absolutely disgusting on the Friday and Saturday of the event, we skipped them and made our way up on Sunday (the main day for Show & Shine), where the rain stayed away, luckily. Props to everyone that camped all weekend in the wet and mud – that’s dedication! Enjoy our round-up, with some of the UK and Europe’s highest quality dubs.

We sneaked in a few photographs of BMW’s, naturally, as you can often find plenty of non-VAG cars dotted around outside the show field, trying their best to join in. Looking at Volkswagens all day can sometimes become a little boring for us – Edition is one of the few shows left that has still stuck to the ‘VAG only’ rule, but fair play to them, they are still attracting the numbers and going strong, this is was their 16th show! But it still makes you wonder – will they ever give in and let other marques be part of the show? Time will tell. Despite the rain, it looked like most people had a fantastic weekend. Thanks to the Edition38 team for having us, we’ll be back.
