It's Showtime!

10th January 2014
Another season rocks up and, as always, it starts off with a visit to Birmingham's NEC to the annual Autosport International Show. As ever, the show highlights some of the best in our sport with the launch of a few new cars sitting happily alongside some old, familiar faces. The Contributors meeting was a good way to meet up with people and to chat with Scott Mitchell, Autosport's new editor.

The unveiling of the JRM Group's new Subaru WRX STI was a high-spot. Niall McShea was there to say a few words and it's fair to say that he's looking forward to throwing this new beast around a little.

The next show will be race Retro at Stoneleigh show ground on February 23rd. The rally stage there features a cluster of Group B cars so it's worth the trip just to see those glorious monsters in action. The Metro 6R4: now that was a proper car. Insane, but proper.

Next weekend sees the first event of the 2014 season with the Clee Hills trial. This was the first of many events that fell foul of the weather throughout the early part of last year so let's hope that we're luckier this time around.
