Stoneleigh Show 2017 Report 1

Stoneleigh 2017 was like returning to the good old days for me with filming of Episode 1 of The Alternative Car Show. It's now live for supporters to see now so if you can't wait to see it click on the link and follow the instructions to pledge $1, $3, or $10 or more. This is how we will pay for the programmes, but the full video will go public on Saturday 10th June and I'll post that link in a future blog.

Meantime here's a little teaser preview for those who want to get an idea what you're missing

So what will you see in Episode 1? Well we take a look around The National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh 2017. New cars (To us) include the Batho and Lee Noble returned with two great looking cars which we look forward to taking a closer look at. An old favourite, the Cox/GTM Coupe returned as the Hambly Coupe and again we hope to take a closer look.

Outside in the Owners clubs we find the heartbeat of the industry and Andy Heaton from the Quantum Owners Club spoke to us about a crisis emerging regarding under-valued cars being written off by insurance companies and those wishing to strip them from parts.

It's an important feature and something we will come back to.

We also look at not one, but two Rochdale Olympics... well as a new body kit for the MX5.

We also take a look at some of the other cars there for the weekend.

On top of all that we have an extended version of the feature on Keith Hymers Rochdale for $3+ patreon supporters and a whole programme, Stoneleigh Plus for $10+ patreons. Again you can do this through


  1. What kind of kit is that on the MX5? who makes it?

  2. It's a body kit by a guy called Dave Wilson. There's a full interview with him on episode 1. I'll post a blog on June 10th with the link or click on the patreon link in the blog
