Stoneleigh 2008 - the National kitcar show

This weekend saw the yearly return of Stoneleigh - the National Kitcar Show. This is the largest kitcar show in the world, and attracts over 4000 kitcars. (This year it would be 4001!)

The show was on both Sunday and the bank holiday Monday. The weather for Sunday was changeable with rain forecast in the middle of the day, so we drove up in the normal everyday car as the Mojo has not yet got a hood for it. (It has been ordered now though, so at least we will be able to go out even if it's raining.)

On the Bank holiday Monday the forecast was for a bright, hot sunny day. This would be our day I thought!We set off quite late to avoid the overnight rain lingering around and arrived at the show for 1pm. After meeting some good friends we popped over to the Sylva club area. Whilst there, I parked my mojo next to another red mojo. We looked very, very similar! (See photo's - mine is in the foreground.)

This years show was excellent, I'm my opinion one of the best ever. It's certainly the biggest show I've ever been to, it takes all day just to look round all the trade stalls, let alone the rest of the show. The show guide said there were over 400 trade stalls selling every part you could ever need for a kitcar, and having walked round the show I can believe it! Once outside in the club area the kitcars just go on and on, for as far as you can see in every direction. If someone ever manufactured a kitcar, the chances are at least one example will be at Stoneleigh.
It's called the largest kitcar show on the planet for a good reason!

The whole weekend was thoroughly enjoyable and the mojo ran like a dream the whole way there and back.

Happy days…
