Hey guys,
please check out www.traxshows.co.uk

i was thinking of including a mercedes presence this year by having MBCLUB UK on one of the stands?

i have been here every year and started with my fiesta turbo , you can also have 0-60 time and drive your car on silverstone race track (GUY, maybe a bit like the trakck day you were thinking about!)

All the other makes have a presence except mercedes, maybe we can be the first?

please let me know what you guys think, and maybe with the permission and help of the moderators, i can get the wheels rolling?

we would all be entitled to half price tickets too and a car pass into the show area!

Hi Guys, due to Lack of Interest on this forum for TRAX, ive decided not to setup a MBCLUB stand, however, i will be on the Eastside stand at the show.

TRAX 2003, Sunday 7th Sept, silverstone, advance tickets are £10, £15 at the door.

www.traxshows.co.uk

they have a 0-60 sprint test, track time on part of silverstone track, and loadsa performance bits and peices.

i will be in the 0-60 showing myself up again! :)

It's a shame I know that www.e36coupe.com has a stand.

Did not realise it was at Silverstone - fairly local. Anyone else want to come for a look?

Graham,

i made a solo representation + a 190 cosworth last year

If you decide to come give me a shout, u can see me whip some cars on the 0-60

Totally agree with you Alps, Trax is an excellent show, and is a shame to miss it.

I would love to make up the numbers but A: Have a trade stand at the show so will be driving there in the van, and B: Havent bought another Mercedes yet! - should have one purchased by next weekend, but doubt it will be ready in time.

Always some great track action, lots to see and do, lots of trade stands.

The layout will be slightly different this year Alps, as they are rebuilding the pit garages at Silverstone, so I believe all of the show is on the infield section.

See you there, pop onto the Unique stand and say hello!

Steve J

nice one Steve, i will be there, so i`ll pop over and say hello!

Ive managed to get a small group of mates together, although most of them are VW`s! called the group "Eastside" as it was the first thing that came into my head, there will also be a purple lotus and a few porsches. so dont be scared to pop over andsay hi if you see my car there. Just managed to fax the ticket order in time for the club discount. only advance tickets avail now!

booked into 3 0-60 sprint tests,alwaays a good laugh, althought the ICE isnt gonna help this year!

what a day!

it seemed like it was bigger than last year!

BMW car club had a very good turnout, i only saw 3 other mercs at the whole show!

I done a very respectable 6.2 secs 0-60 although book time is 6.7 i think.

had 2 engine casualties - Mk2 VW golf-spewed engine oil everywhere 9parked up at a mates at lakeside, and a Ford Escort RS Turbo, tried racing me and his engine rings gave way on his 6 mnth old £3500 engine! had to be towed back!

Steve, didnt spot the unique stand anywhere!

excellent day out, will post pics later !
