Its gonna big a summer for us here at Players HQ…………
With the show season now fully underway and Carl off for his usual working Holiday in Socal, the term working is used VERY loosely, things are getting pretty hectic….
What with the near completion of our new workshop and office…
To the new and old builds we have stacked up and ready……
To hosting the biggest one day all Marque Show’s in the Uk…
We have an awful lot planned with our sponsors but also some VERY exciting news on collaborations, we will be updating this blog more regularly now with what we actually get up too…
If you even the slightest interest in MK2 Golfs you will surely have seen the pics of the fantastic new fender flares and one piece duckbill being produced by Rocket Bunny and soon to be available through our good friends over at Rotiform.
We know how hard it is to do anything remotely new or fresh to the Mk2 Golf but this has certainly got a lot of people excited!!
The 1 piece “duckbill” style front spoiler is a stroke of genius as owners of Mk2’s have often had to cut up and fit mk1 Duckbills to achieve this look, not anymore!!!!
We for one cannot wait to get our hands on one!!!!!
So with the new year upon us it was time to get our annual pilgrimage to Worthersee sorted.
For those who don’t know Worthersee is an idyllic and picturesque region of Austria that every year see’s the whole of the european VAG scene descend upon it.
Basically if its German and cool its there……….
We have a pretty cool line up of cars we are taking on the 2000 mile round trip and we will once again be joined by Brian from Rotiform who has something special up his sleeve for this year after doing the journey in his rather special 964 last year.
So after picking up this 1968 510 truck from California late last year we are finally about to get this longterm project underway.
We are led to believe that there are literally a handful of these in the country so because of that……..we are going too SLAM it.
For that job we are enlisting Matt the main man at BALLS’d to get our work truck on the floor. The truck is amazingly rot free and solid and we have a long term plan for this project, so keep an eye out for updates…
SO SOME HOW THEY LET US BACK……………
Well its been confirmed that after the success of the inaugural “Players Classic” event at Goodwood Motor Circuit we will return on June 7th, despite leaving rubber all over the track!
Applications for the covered top 400 cars in the main paddock will go live and more details of the action on the day will be released over the coming weeks.
We don’t usually post supercar content here at Players, but we just had to make an exception for possibly the wildest Lamborghini ever created… and that’s saying something! It’s called the Egoista and according to Lamborghini it’s been styled by an Apache Helicopter (minus the wings). A 5.2-litre V10 delivers over 550bhp and there’s only space for the driver, but just look at that styling! Continue reading
They’re two of the best drifters in the world and in 2013 Mad Mike Whiddett and Fredric Aasbo will make history by becoming the first to tandem drift the iconic Goodwood Circuit @ Players Classic! We’re mega excited to welcome both drivers and the whole Speedhunters crew as part of their European Drift Tour. This is going to be big… Continue reading
Now in its 7th year Players Show is held at North Weald Airfield, Essex. Taking place on in September this year’s Premium Automotive Event will be bigger and better than ever.
Players is the brainchild of Jamie ‘Jaymac’ McToldridge and Carl Taylor who have both been in the Car Culture scene for more years than either would care to admit. Jaymac wanted to deliver a quality event with a relaxed European vibe. In a short (and rare) interview Jay said, “I wanted to deliver a quality event with a relaxed European vibe.” Carl was looking to serve-up a show that offered cool prizes, a super-friendly ‘all cars welcome’ ethos and killer value. At the time of writing this box of words Carlos was unavailable for interview.
Stephen Brooks hit the show last year and put together this great looking film. Over 100,000 people have viewed this sweet little short and it showcases exactly what we’re all about – having fun in cool cars. Continue reading
