Steeda Driving Experience 3 - SMUK Club Day - March 2018

Well another great Steeda Driving Experience completed, this time with our friends from Simply Mustangs UK, one of the UK's most dedicated "mixed ownership" Mustang clubs.

A whole herd of ponies were in attendance for our first 2018 Steeda Driving Experience, with a nice range of S550 and S197 Mustangs dominating the line up. There was also a fair amount of "whine up" too, as there were quite a few supercharged cars in attendance.

The day started with our fast left hand bend, and people got stuck in with verve, and the numbers management went very well with everyone "doubling up" and swapping in and out of cars as passenger and driver for two totally different experiences.

Accelerating down the approach road provided a great example of why fitting a Steeda "Stop the Hop" pack is ESSENTIAL for any supercharged car, as a whipple charged car (who shall remain nameless) shot straight off the track onto the grass while attempting to launch. If that was on the road --> kerb impact --->big crash or shattered wheels potentially.

Of course just because they remain nameless doesn't mean the following picture is not them! It was a lovely car with a nice Whipple install done by GT101.

Once the bend antics were complete the cars split into 2 groups and 2 circuits were built up. The weather was perfect all day, and we can safely say a great time was had by all.

The Steeda Q500 was on display (and we managed to sneak in a few goes at the end!) as well as displaying a selection of our favourite Mustang wheels by Velgen.
