Edition 38 show saw it’s 15th anniversary this year and after 15 years what can be said that hasn’t been said before? Clearly not much seeing as it’s taken me a week to write this.
I could talk about the show field layout, the drive on stage or the campsites but chances are even if you haven’t been to the show you’ll know the story with it. This year our trip was a bit of a spur of the moment decision. Instead of our normal driving/camping weekend, Matt, Lee and I booked a flight at the last minute and only went for the Sunday.
One thing I will say about the show is that is hasn’t lost its mix of modern and older cars. They’re were as many 70s, 80s and 90s cars holding their own and in my opinion mostly out doing the 2000s onwards cars. After 15 years it obviously hasn’t lost its appeal – the field was packed with cars and spectators all day. There were also some hidden gems dotted around the campsite and car parks – BMWs, Mercs and even a mk1 Nova Saloon.
For me my car of the show was split between two mk1 Polos. Both cars parked side by side, dropped on 13s, bays tidied and filled with Polo 16v engines on twin carbs. The similarities end with this and go their separate ways on colour, interior trim and wheels.
Clearly I’m biased towards the older metal and I make no apologies for that being evident in my photos but if you are into old or new, big power or all show no go, bagged or static or even other makes of cars you will find something for most people at Edition 38.
