The weeks of planning and preparation, late nights and early starts were well worth it, as this year’s Dorset County Show was a huge success. Not only did we meet lots of our customers over the two day event, but we are also extremely proud to have been awarded first place in the Best Large Trade Stand category. With over 120 entrants in the category, the judges were scoring on the presentation and layout of the stand along with the overall impression given by the staff in attendance.

Wonderful sunshine greeted all the entries for the second meeting of the season at  Gurston Down Hillclimb near Salisbury on 25/26th May .

With the WP Group supported Subaru Impreza running in the "Over 2000cc Road going Production Class" and driven by Shaun and Sarah Fudge of Lewis Dean Motorsport they set out to prove that a second place award in April was no fluke. The task would be harder than imagined when the budding privateers found out that they would be up against, no less than, a brand new factory works Vauxhall VXR.
