----------------
It's just a short time 'till we open the gates to the 2014 Apex Festival and we are getting pretty darn excited!

Last year was an absolute blast, this year is going to be even more explosive!

This grass roots family friendly show has seemingly captured the imagination of the classic, race, retro and performance scenes.
It's run and delivered by genuine enthusiasts, with HUGE support from individuals, clubs and trade partners - all of which are influencing the finer aspects of the festival they want to see developed, and at the same time keeping things grounded so we keep that very special and unique atmosphere for years to come.

It is very much is a show 'by the people' 'for the people' - Hmmm 'VolksWagen' = 'Peoples Car' , 'VolksSchau' = 'Peoples Show'
(Well according to Google Translate it is! LoL)

Apex Festival is our 'VolksSchau'

You may have noticed that we have a strong VW influence, it's in our DNA as we circuit race air-cooled and VAG water-cooled cars, and have been rubbin' paint with many other racers and marques over the years with healthy competition and entertaining banter.
That said we have an insatiable appetite for all things Classic, Race, Retro and Performance which has introduced some awesome spectator viewing over our previous events - just look at the photos and videos… you'll see what we mean..

Everything from the Ex-Jason Plato British Touring Car, Drifting Air-cooled Bugs, Retro Mk1 Golf Berg Cup Racers, Single Seater Race Cars, Zetec Powered Mk1 Escorts and Fiestas, Hill Climb Spec MX5 and Beetles, Outlaw Porsche 356, Bike engined sprint cars and of course the infamous Race-Taxi FB1 (Twin Turbo Porsche powered split screen bus - seen overtaking a 911 and pretty much everything else out on the circuit at the time.. really!) Each year it just gets better and more thrilling to witness as we draw cars in from all over Europe..

The Retro Drift Challenge will return this year with a full challenge round, which will see even more paint scraping, tyre smoking, sideways automotive ballet (Not sure how they will take being likened to a Ballerina.. who knows you may see a Tutu in the paddocks!) - Nothing would surprise us, these guys 'n girls know how to have a laugh and put on a show!

It has always been our ambition to make the festival as participative as possible.. so YOU become part of the very fabric which forms the show itself… yep I think we can maybe reference the 'VolksSchau' again here! :)

To do this we created all sorts of opportunities for YOU to get out and experience the race circuit yourself.. whether it's a fast, fun and safe Trackday Session where you can drive your vehicle - be it a high powered street car or your daily driver worx van - you'll come back in to the pits grinning from ear to ear, typically followed by a brief sprint to see what other slots are available to get back out again!

The Circuit Parade laps are open to ALL to participate and drive around the track all together..

…and if that wasn't enough, you can also buckle-up and take a race pace passenger ride in various race cars, and experience first hand what it is like to be in a Drift Car with passenger rides all weekend.

It's without doubt a festival of Show 'n Go Go Go… and that's just what is happening on the race circuit!

Don't think this is a stereo typical 'Boys day out' - all talk of traction and turbos - It's a family friendly show, albeit with plenty to prevent 'Dad getting bored and annoying you' There are plenty of FREE kids activities with a dedicated Kids Zone (Strategically located so you can keep one eye on the kids having fun and the other on all the track action :) - Well behaved dogs are welcomed too -after all they are part of the family too!

We love good grub and this was important to us too.. If you are a foodie you'll love the catering, it's not often you attend a show and people comment on just how great the food was.. all compliments have to go to the independent food suppliers for bringing us such delicious fayre.

There is loads to see and do in the show grounds, from BMX Displays, Show 'n Shine Arena, Trade Stands, Club Displays and the Live Open Paddock full of Race and Retro machinery from all over Europe.

Talking of Europe, you'll see plenty of international number plate registrations at Apex, as the venue is ideally located for visiting clubs from Europe - it's just 15mins from Dover International Port, and this year we will be welcoming even more overseas clubs to our UK Scene, which is awesome!

And lets not forget the evening entertainment, with the Cool Flo Drive-In Movie, chilling out eating dinner and popcorn in front of the big screen, before heading down to the dance tent for a Saturday nite Party - featuring the Silent Disco in what has been dubbed the 'Tourrettes Tent' as all you could hear was the raised voices of Headphone wearing revellers shouting to each other "This is ******* mad!!" LoL - Luckily all the little ones were tucked up in bed by then!

So that's the essence of what the Apex Festival is all about.. a fun weekender, with non-stop action, no matter what the weather, rain doesn't stop play on the track.. it just gets more exciting.

It's not something that we have purposely shaped, more something that YOU have impacted and made your own.. and we can all enjoy together. It's like a great big wedding day

We have been genuinely humbled by the response we have had to the festival, how forgiving, constructive and helpful you have been when we didn't get something quite right - remember we are just real enthusiasts wanting to do something fresh in the scene - and there is a real sense of ownership and desire for us to all make this the most fun show on your 'Must Do' calendar..

So once again a massive thank you to YOU for helping us make this a blinding fun weekend - now all we have to do is do it all again!!! - Roll on 10-11th May

See you there.. and spread the word!
