Stance Fever 2017

Date: 7 May 2017

Location: Rockingham Motor Speedway, Northamptonshire


Words & Photos by Henry Phull


After the success of last year’s show, we decided to head back up to Rockingham Motor Speedway for 2017’s offering of Stance Fever. Starting back in 2014 as a small event at the Ace Cafe in London, Stance Fever is the brainchild of Faz Ahmed (Specialist Tyres) and Nick Rance (Beds-Modified) who wanted to bring two rather different car cultures and styles together. It’s no surprise, then, that a wide variation of cars and taste is commonplace at their show. Both well connected within the car community, Nick and Faz packed-out the Ace Cafe for their first event… Year two called for a bigger venue, and a move to Norton Heath Centre in Essex. With the high quality of cars, more and more people had their eyes on Stance Fever, thanks to their ‘quality over quantity’ vibe, visible from the get-go. In 2016, it was time to open up the show to a wider audience with the introduction of Rockingham Motor Speedway, which provided much more space for cars. Take a look at our highlights from last weekend…

Clearly, the quality of cars in attendance at Stance Fever gets higher and higher each year, and, although not a huge event, this year did see over 600 people through the gates. With two ‘Top 100’ pre-selected areas of show cars along with plenty of club-stands and even space for people to simply turn up and show their car on the day, the event caters for everyone. Plus, with live drifting taking place simultaneously, as well as the usual Rockingham track action, there’s plenty to see if you do happen to get bored of looking at cars. Naturally, Faz and Nick have decided to continue at Rockingham for 2018, with even more updates planned. So, keep an eye on the Stance Fever social media pages for an announcement of the date – you’re going to want to add it to your diary!
