    Trax 2007 how was it ???

    well from me i would say it was not as good as it could have been Trade area was very poor this year
    cars on show not as good as past few years
    come on if you paid £20 to get in like the people on the gate would you be happy with the turn out of the show and how it was ?
    needs more traders on the vauxhall front

    price of food an drinks £1,50p for a can of Coke come on

    No Regal Autosport,
    No LMF,
    No courtenay sport

    Trade stands were poor compared to last year where they went the length of the pitlane and the area to the left of it.

    The number of cars there seemed to be around the same as last year, and think I spent more time there today than I did last year.

    Food + drink is a bit of a joke, £1.70 for a cup of tea, £4.60 for a 1/2 cheeseburger

    Having said that, it is still the best show out of the ones I have been to this year (PVS + Fastfest), and the weather was good

    Trade stands were a severe disappointment but then again maybe thats a good thing as I came away empty handed.

    The class of young laydeez draped over cars was also bloody attrocious too...some would have been more at home at Battersea dogs home lol

    Weather was good (albeit a little chilly at times) and I got the main thing I went down for (cheers Clokey ) Apart from that it wasn't really my bag.

    Stand looked good I must say - so top marks to the "team" for their organisation skills.....even with me grabbing the penultimate spot due to my severe sleeping in

    I'm affraid Silverstone put up their trade stand prices which has meant alot of traders stopped well away this year as the sheer amount of items require to be sold in order to break even was rediculous. So silverstone listen up and sort your act out!
    Its a jam thing

    Well im glad other people also agree.

    OUr stand was by far one of the better stands there and was organised extremely well BUT

    The trade area was crap! No decent tuners there and the other shops were just full of cheap, stick on, chavvy shite!

    The quality of the cars there were also disappointing, too many sheds and over done jap cars

    And i doubt i will go next year as it has been going down hill for the past few years, so god knows wot it will be like next year

    Have to agree with most of the comments, very dissapointed that there was a lack of VX tuners there, I also came away empty handed (wife happy though). Good points, weather was good and got to meet some nice people.
