07-06-13 – Players Classic x Speedhunters x Goodwood Motor racing circuit

It’s freezing cold now and pretty much dark all the time. Yep, winter. It’s happened again, but 5 months ago (yeah, it’s really been that long) it was 25 degrees and I was in the South.  I got the golden ticket from Bryn over at Speedhunters and, with slightly less than no thinking about it, booked my place.  With some final spannering complete on the car I loaded up for the 500 mile round trip: Goodwood, petrol-head Mecca and sporting venue of the finer gentleman, oh and Players…those guys!

500 miles is a LONG way in a stripped out 105db car, but it was worth it….it was really worth it!  As you’d expect the quality of the cars was second-to-none…the best the UK and probably the-pointy-bit-at-the-top-of-Europe had to offer.

The cherry on the cake: A massive bucket-list tick off in the shape of getting to take in a few laps of the legendary circuit in my KP.  Massive thanks to Captain Players himself Jay who hooked me up with a track briefing to get me out there despite rocking up late!  The circuit was great; really fast with that tricky hair-pin to test your brakes, bravery and give you an excuse to make some noise in front of the crowd.

500 miles. 5 laps of Goodwood and still shiny enough to play with the big boys:  The KP that keeps on giving.  I’ve had a total second honeymoon with this car.

 

There’s been a lot of shows this summer, but none with quite the same vibe, sense of occasion and all-round style of Players Classic….see you at the next one!

14-04-13 Early Edition

How to make friends and influence people:  Turn up late to a VW show in your daily Mercedes and get a pass straight into the show and shine.  Out of my league and out of my depth.  Thanks to Meguire’s I was able to borrow some products to clean W123 down (I was fully expecting to be leaving it outside in the car park) and we were in.  Massive thanks to the Edition guys for the golden ticket.  Awesome show and a great warm up for full-fat Edition later in the year.

01-07-12 – Retro Show

Right, time for some catch-back:  For me Retro Show is one of the big 3 shows of the summer and with dry weather on the cards, it didn’t disappoint.   The Herald got its first (dry) public outing on the Retro Cars stand and was lording it up with celebrity motors like Jay Mac’s ZERO lip MK2; that’s how we roll!  Good to meet some of you on the day and good to finally get out in the car!

Here’s some B-roll to keep you going…check out Retro Cars mag for the full story.

Players ‘09 20-09-09 Part #2

It’s pretty much been the summer of Air and Players was no different; T3D did well with the awards and it’s pretty clear why:

You’ll get no apologies for the hundreds of pics I’m posting of “that” Brasilia. Car of the year?

Big thanks to Elliot for hooking me up with a Wheel Whores T-Shirt. Loving the knocking shop!

PAPPED!

The trophies were awesome; some real time had been spent on the top prizes.

I got a sticker on my windscreen meaning I had won! Unfortunately, there were more stickers than awards so I never got a trophy Ha Ha!

Wheel Whores Winner:
