Players Show Report, Photos and Video

23rd October 2012 | BY NSNP

The 4th Players show took place on Sunday 16th September, we were there to not only cover the show but to take our very first trade stand out for a spin. As per usual for the NSNP Crew it was an early start (4.30am) in order to load the car up with enough sweets, t-shirts, gear and stickers to sink a battle ship! The journey down to Essex was good fun though with plenty of cars already on their way, mostly covered in blue detailing tape or bonnet bras. We arrived in good time and just about managed to beat what became an epic queue later on, which was simply down to the sheer volume of people attending this year. Even the organisers looked shocked at the snaking trail of cars disappearing off in to the distance.

Edition 38 show report

3rd September 2012 | BY NSNP

Alarms went off at around 6am and before we knew it, we were on the road to Northampton for the final day of Edition 38. We pulled through the main gates to a packed show ground which even by 9am was buzzing with activity. As is the norm with these kind of shows the car park was filled with tonnes of very tasty stuff, so we took our time to wander through before collecting our passes from the media tent.

Trident Iceni Grand Tourer - The worlds most economical supercar?

28th August 2012 | BY NSNP

When we heard about a new diesel supercar capable of 200mph and up to 2000 miles on a single tank of fuel we let out a sigh, “If only” we said. It’s not a stretch to believe that a diesel engined car would hit 200mph, if it was teamed up with the right chassis and aero mods - look at the Darkside Jetta for example, that thing is only 46mph short and it’s as slippery as a house brick. But 2000 miles on a single tank of fuel? We weren’t sold, a car like that could only be the thing of myth and legend.

Or could it?
