Now in its fourth year, Fast Car’s Car Culture Collection with VIBE Audio is set to be one of the biggest yet…
Have you ever seen a car magazine come to life? Well, this is about as close as you’ll get. The Fast Car team has been busy for approximately half the year sourcing the best collection of past, present and future feature cars, all for your viewing pleasure.
The magazine prides itself on featuring a huge selection of modified cars. Everything from stanced Subarus to track-focused machinery is welcome (if it’s worthy) in the pages of the UK’s longest running and most-loved modified car magazine. And the assortment of cars that the FC team is bringing along to TRAX is a reflection of the magazine’s philosophy.
There really is no better place to see such a variety of top quality cars on show. Make sure you pop over and take a look around the 100 strong car display that also boasts a hero exhibition of the magazine’s favourite builds of 2017. You won’t be disappointed…
The Fast Car team is still busy putting together the final list of display cars but here’s just a few that have already confirmed their attendance…
Sam Flack’s S2000
The last three years of this West Sussex-based travel exec’s life have almost entirely been filled with trying to prove his peers wrong by building one of the first, wide arch-kitted S2000s on this continent. And here it is!
It’s wearing a seriously JDM M&M Honda wide-body kit, a rarity in itself. Make sure you pop along and have a look at this build in the flesh. It’s one not to miss!
Max Edwards’ 1978 Beetle
One of the best old school builds of 2017 Max Edwards’ 80s-inspired Bug is more retro than Salt-N-Pepa in a tie-dye T-shirt banging out Push It. Luckily, it’s a lot cooler as it sits on Air Lift bags and BBS rims. Make sure you don’t miss this ballin’ Bug.
Jak Titch’s Polo
Jak’s Polo was one of the most talked about cars of TRAX 2016. But you won’t recognise it from last year’s look, mainly because it hasn’t got Donald Trump’s orange face plastered all over it. And believe us, that’s a good thing!
Daniel Coates’ Mk6 Golf GTi
Is there a cleaner looking Mk6 in the UK? If you’ve seen one, can you let us know? Anyway, this Candy White stunner is pushing over 300bhp and proudly boasts three piece Rotiform BLQ-T rims and Air Lift suspension. The innards are just as cool with retrimmed Recaro Sportster CS recliners taking pride of place.
Pipey McGraw’s E Type
The Jaguar E-type is one of the world’s best-loved sports cars, so you’d have to be totally insane to chop one up and turn it into a drift car. Fortunately, Pipey McGraw, is just the right amount of loony to do just that – and then lob a fire-spitting triple-rotor in its nose. Photos don’t do this thing justice; it is an absolute assault on the senses and you can see it on display at Fast Car’s Car Culture Collection. Pipey is also taking on Silverstone’s famous tarmac at 15:40pm, and as we all know, there’s nothing quite like the audio heaven of a triple rotor, so get yourself trackside!
*We hope all of these cars make the show, but please be aware that we can’t guarantee their appearance. However, in the event of a no-show, a suitably awesome replacement will be found!
Not only will you find the best mix of show cars on the scene, but yet again Fast Car has teamed up with VIBE Audio. With a full PA rig and DJ set-up, there’ll be performances from a whole bunch of DJs throughout the day, and you’ll be able to take a closer look at VIBE’s demo cars.
They’ll also be putting their truck’s famous bass tunnel through its paces – if you don’t see them, you’ll certainly hear them! Keep your eyes and ears peeled throughout the day because VIBE has £1000 worth of goodies to giveaway. All you have to do is take a selfie in front of their truck. Then tag @fastcarmagazine and @vibeaudio on Instagram with the hashtag #TruckMe. Good luck!
TRAX takes place at Silverstone on the 1st October 2017. For more info and tickets see the TRAX website
