Last Sunday the famous TRAX Performance and Modified Car Event took place at Silverstone Race Circuit.
Every year thousands of car enthusiasts attend this famous event. Trax is an opportunity for owners of all makes and models of cars to come together to show off their pride and joy.
Not only are there all always different cars on display, there is also plenty of entertainment throughout the day.
Ahead of the event, I spent the whole of Saturday running about, making sure everything was in working order with my own Ford Fiesta Zetec S Celebration, which I was taking along to the event. This included hours of cleaning and polishing!
Driftworks at Trax
Every year the British Drift Championships holds one of the rounds at Trax. This year there were three different displays throughout the day. The professional drifters also made themselves available for pictures and signings. Last year I got a picture with Phil from Driftworks (who we proudly sponsor and insure).

The Retail Village
As well as all of the competitions and entertainment, there was a ‘Retail Village’ at TRAX. This village included lots of Modification Manufactures and Car Cleaning Product companies who had stands where you could purchase their products – it was like a dream High Street for car enthusiasts. You could purchase anything from alloy wheels to stickers or cleaning products, suspension set-ups and much more. As well as being able to purchase all of this, you also had the opportunity to meet with the manufacturers, who were happy to give you any advice that you needed..
The Sound Tunnel
Also within the Retail Village, there were lots of cars on display featuring sound systems from different companies. People got the opportunity to hear what the sound systems were capable of and to view all the different installations. As well as having all of the cars on display they also had the famous ‘sound tunnel’. This is where there’s a walk-through passage filled with speakers blaring music.
