First and main point I want to make, so I will make it right now, at the very beginning. THANK YOU to EVERYONE who made the effort to come down to the meet. I was overwhelmed once it all sunk in on just how many people came to the first show I hosted. All the time, money & sleepless nights I went through become abundant once I saw all the cars rolling in, the DJ's playing and even though the weather wasnt on our side, people smiling. That really did make my day. It was awesome! I have already had a meeting regarding the day & Rebooking it all for next year, which will be named IMPACT TWO14. So watch out for sneak previews of that. I want to start this story from the week before the show. I got to work & started off doing a few general orders I had to do, whilst cutting out some stickers, my machine at itself. I started to panic slightly. I tried everything, even getting a new computer (I say new, it was an old one laying around in the office that was no longer occupied by a previously employee) running. After days of trying to contact the forever useless idiots I bought it off, I just decided to bite the bullet and buy a new machine, which thankfully arrived at 8:30am on the Thursday. Thursday I spent the whole day printing stickers, not cutting / weaving, just printing. Simon Bucknell arrived at around 7ish after a super long drive from his home near wales or somewhere miles away like that. I put him straight to work. The next 24 hours nearly completely involved weaving stickers. I thought Simon was going to just walk out and go home haha, thankfully though he helped me all day, I wouldn't have been able to complete what we did without him. Saturday, was a nice treat. Thankfully my girlfriend & her best friend were willing to help do the stickers whilst Simon & I cleaned up our cars. We had also heard from Hoho & his group of mates that they were driving down from Newcastle. I couldn't actually believe it. Once everyone was at the house, the driveway looked amazing. We all got stuck in detailing the cars, I had to remove all the Advertising stickers off my EG so I got no pictures, thankfully Henry Yeung who came down with Hoho decided to start snapping away 1 (Photo Copyright Henry Yeung Photography) 2 (Photo Copyright Henry Yeung Photography) Si dc5 (Photo Copyright Henry Yeung Photography) EG hoho (Photo Copyright Henry Yeung Photography) EG MUGEN Once we had spent a good few hours on the cars, the northern boys departed for their hotel to have a shower & Relax before meeting us for dinner, later on, last minute we managed to get a table big enough for the 8 of us at Zizzi's in Colchester Town before heading for the Pre-Drinks at V BAR. Not many people turned up to V bar, wether it be through my lack of organisation or just people being to tired. It was a shame because the people that did turn up had a great evening (Some of them got very drunk). It was great to put some internet faces to names, Very chilled out evening & thank you to V Bar for giving us the floor for the night. The next morning came my 5:00 am Alarm, Along with the nervs and anticipation. I am not going to lie, I was very nervous. After putting the final bits into my Civic, seeing the clouds and needing a jumper, I was even more worried. I had ordered sun, not this cold depressing british weather. Regardless, I knew I had everything in place to be set for a good day. Once again I need to extend my gratitude to Simon Bucknell, even though he was on the verge of throwing up all of last nights meal & alcohol he still helped my dad and I set up the Stand. stand At around 7:30am, cars started arriving, Liam B was one of the first in as always. Shows great support to myself & The 6TWO1 brand, this does not go un-noticed !! I didnt get to get my camera going until mid-day because I was so busy organising cars and trying to make the day run smooth, but here are my photos. I will also be including links to others gallery's of the day! My good friends at own the night clothing had a trade stand with Pete's DC2 out front. I know a lot of you grabbed some of their merchandise. Great company : check them out here : ownthenight Yellow EK9 Ek9 Clair's Epic J's Racing S2000. I gave this car the award of Car of the show. Because it blew me away! Front js J's racing All morning I spent lining the cars up. I'm sure a lot of people wondered why I was being so anal about how they are parked but to me this is one of the most important things at the event. Next year I will have more marshals to get everyone in a bit quicker. Doing it all on my own was a bit of a pain in the arse. Thank you to Sam Brazier for helping me on the spur of the moment too haha. lineup One of the Shootall Ballers Cars, Incredible DC2. Dc2 Matt Howards K-swapped Phoenix Yellow DC2, is one of my favourite cars around at the minute. Simplicity at its finest with a killer engine swap hiding under the bonnet.

Alex's pristine DC5... dc5 EG Big thanks goes out to Dave @ Endless Horizon for all his help getting the word out there via social media too, but mainly for being on time. In all my years knowing Dav, I think this was the first time ever he's been on time for an event. haha. I feel honoured it was mine he chose to be on time for. EH Dav also bought a long his friend with an incredible EVO which you may recognise from the Mimms meet post, now on new Enkei Wheels! evo One of the 2 DJ's of the day - Ed Billing. I have literally known Ed the whole time I have been into modifying cars. He was the resident DJ of a car club I first joined at 18 called Street Legal & When I was looking for a DJ he was the first that sprung to mind. Both himself and the other DJ for the day did an epic job with the tunes & WILL Be back next year!!! dj ed Zak's Jordan being photobombed by Jonny from ILOVEBASS zak jordan Mr JDMGram Himself (Check instagram, you're probably already following him!) all day he kept telling me off for drinking redbull haha. jdmgram Matt & Dave capturing the atmosphere nicely in this image! happy Tom Walker's Legend took home award for best wheel/stance combo.

Jon webb His Friend Ed's 98spec DC2 DC2 Hard looking Red EG. Loved it! Great inspiration also I believe this had perspex windows eg EK look's like its been through a few battles on the track! EK Track Benny's EG took home best honda - I felt it deserved the award because of a few reasons, for one, its an awesome build so far in the time he has had it. Dude has a great personality and is enthusiastic about building his car. How it should be. He doesn't build it for awards, he does it for himself, go introduce yourself at a show and you probably wont even start talking about cars until you need to be somewhere else. This is how OUR scene needs to stay. Keep the one time award idiots away. benny front side Benny rear Black JDM EG5 with a B16A swap eg Really clean EK4 with body coloured Wheels..
