02-09-12 – TRAX12

I generally go into things with an open mind, but when it came to Trax I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to get:  The bad old days of Max Power liberally plastered all over the tarmac of Sliverstone circuit;  neons, fibreglass and shell suits.  It delivered.  The welcome suprise was among the bad and really bad were some really cool cars.  Here’s the filtered best:

Project KP30: Speedhunters Shoot – Behind The Scenes

You may have heard of a little website that goes by the name of Speedhunters? Well, I’ve been showing my support by having them in my blog roll for a while now and a couple of weeks back I got a call from Bryn (Musselwhite – Speedhunter’s newest features man and my long-term media crush) saying they wanted to feature the KP: AWESOME.

After we cancelled once due to the rain, there was only one other date we could do it…and guess what?  It was raining, though just the term “raining” doesn’t really do justice to what felt like all the water in the world being thrown at a quiet corner of the Cotswolds where the shoot was taking place.   The KP has only be wet about 4 or 5 times in 7 years, so I held back the tears and went for it.  Luckily when I arrived there was the full Speedhunters service:  Car wash and coffee.

Despite the freezing deluge it was an awesome day and, as always, a laugh with Bryn.  Here’s a few “behind the scenes” pics.  Bryn’s barns hold a number of cool cars, parts and memorabilia – worth a SH feature on their own!

Thanks again to Bryn and Speedhunters!  Check out the full feature here:
