Stance Fever 2017

Date: 7 May 2017

Location: Rockingham Motor Speedway, Northamptonshire

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!

Westside Treffen 2016

Date: 25 September 2016

Location: Chalfont St. Peter Cricket Club, Gerrards Cross

 

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Westside Treffen is the hidden gem of modified car shows in the UK. It really does surprise me how many people don’t know of its existence when I mention it. From people that have been, including all the regulars, you’ll constantly hear “Come to Westside. It’s THE most chilled out show.” Well, they ain’t lying! The quality of cars on display is usually top notch too, and that’s partly what makes this show awesome. It could also have something to do with the time of year, being the last outdoor event on the calendar, a lot of people are about to tuck their show cars away for winter. Westside is one final stage for your pride and joy to make a spectacle before the new show season (Unless you’re attending Ultimate Stance this weekend, of course – but the crowd there is slightly different). The ideology for Westside is pretty simple really. Book out a cricket club on the outskirts of West London, bring your friends and their cars (of which 80% happen to be concourse condition classic Volkswagens), get the family to help out with some incredible home-cooked food, 80s/90s music and you’re onto a winner. It’s no surprise that the show has grown year on year but still remains a small, relaxed event.

I’m really pleased that Westside has stuck to the same venue. It seems like they could move somewhere bigger every year with ease. Instead, they stick to what they know and what works. Let’s face it, there’s plenty of larger shows you can visit, but this is partly what makes Westside unique. Some worry about getting their car into the show because of the limited space – I say just turn up earlier! I think I said it in my previous article, but 2016 has not been kind to us in regards to rain… Luckily the rain stayed away for this show, but it had been chucking it down the previous night, which meant wet roads on route to the show. This blatantly put a few people off, but it just so happened that people turned up a bit later than usual. The show was heaving. I turned up, caught up with loads of friends, admired some impressive cars, and feasted on some fantastic Jamaican and Indian food. What’s not to love? If you’ve still not been to Westside, you’ve been missing out.

We’ll catch you all very soon with our booth at Ultimate Stance (Telford International Centre) on Sunday 30th October.
