12 Volt Planet goes to TRAX 2013 Performance Car Show
Monday, 9 September 2013 | Paul
We have to admit to having a weakness for all things 4-wheeled at 12 Volt Planet so when we were invited to TRAX 2013 at Silverstone we thought we'd head over to see what it was all about.
Trax is just one of a number of annual auto-shows organised by Future Publishing but is touted as the ultimate performance car event, and if you like your cars low, loud, modified and fast then this is most definitely the place for you. Being a multi-marque show there were representations from owners clubs of all the major manufacturers resulting in 100's of cars on display ranging from the subtly modified daily driver right through to the stripped-out track day rocket, with everything imaginable in between.
Drivers had the chance to experience the Silverstone circuit for themselves with track-time sessions and there were various motorsport events throughout the day, including drift demos and racing from some of the BTCC drivers . The good old British weather did put a bit of a dampener on proceedings in the afternoon but overall it was a great show with a huge turnout. If it sounds like your thing then we recommend checking it out in 2014.
