2014 Event Roundup Part 1

December 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

As an event roundup I would like to share with you some of the events since my last blog post.

This is in two part because its just too damn big!

2014 has been another fantastic year where I have been able to shoot at many great events as well as shooting with some fantastic models (more of that in the next blog)

So in reverse order here we go with some of my highlights.

Bug Jam

After 2013s record breaking hot weather this year was a slightly damper affiar but it didn't stop VW enthusiasts from turning up in vast numbers.

Bug Jam is more of a festival than a car show with lots of entertainment on as well as many fine VWs and the wet weather didn't stop people from having a great weekend.

Performance direct girls Michelle and Faye weren't going to let the damp weather stop them looking gorgeous

Emily and were the lovely Performance Direct girls on the Sunday

A rare treat on the Sunday was a flyover by one of a few Lancaster Bombers

Silverstone Classic

Next up was what is becoming one of my favourite shows for the sheer spectacle of so many rare and expensive cars both on display and on the track.

This was also helped by some of the hottest weather in 2014.

Any supercar you could name made an appearance at Silverstone Classic and in some cases in large numbers.

P51 Mustangs providing a flyover

LeMans Mercedes as once driven by Michael Schumacher hard on the brakes

As well as Mustangs in the air there were some on the ground modelled by the lovely Grove & Dean girls Hayley and Emily


Ford Fair

Back at Silverstone again but this time for Ford Fair, possibly one of the biggest Ford shows in the UK if not Europe with more great weather and a massive selection of Fords both new and old.

Performance Vauxhall Show

Back to Santa Pod now for the Performance Vauxhall Show which always has a good turnout

Emily and Roxanne and the glamour on behalf of Performance Direct


Sywell Great War Airshow

It was time to look to the skies now for the bi-annual airshow at Sywell Aerodrome

This show was to commemorate the centenary of WWI but there were aircraft from all generations there.

The Blades who are based out of Sywell and probably the best prop driven stunt team in the UK

The always amazing Red Arrows

FIA European Finals

Luckily for me I am very local to all of these events and I didn't have to go far to visit Santa Pod for the FIA European Finals

This event is a great opportunity to see just about every class of vehicle that has gone down a dragstrip


You can also see my video footage onboard the Twin Seater Dragster that was a Performance Direct competition prize




Back to Silverstone for a regular show on the calendar, Trax.

This show gives a chance for modified car owners to show what their latest hobby is as well as the chance to see some professional drifting on the track

Jessika and Laura provided the eye candy for Maxxis

The lovely Adrian Flux girls
