The inaugural Motor Show EAST took place 2-3 June 2018 at Newmarket Racecourse. The event was proudly sponsored by Mattioli Woods plc and Greene King with their Old Speckled Hen brand. The skies were threatening all sorts of unpleasant weather on Saturday, but Sunday couldn't have been better.
We were honoured to have the British GT Championship driver Graham Davidson with us for the whole weekend as part of the Mattioli Woods plc display in the Millennium Grandstand. He even brought his Aston Martin V12 Vantage along with him, fresh from a podium finish at Snetterton the weekend before and visitors were even allowed to sit in the car for photos.
We were very pleased to welcome dealers and franchises from the region; Cambridge MG, Crown Garage Honda, EMG Kia, Cambridge Tesla, Rawlinson Mitsubishi, Cambridge Audi, Cambridge Subaru, Cambridge Ducati & EMG Mazda, along with specialists such as; CBS Automotive, Torque & Talk Owners Club, Wallis & Son, Jules Sturgess Automotive & Van System.
The collection of exotic cars was impressive; a black Porsche Carrera GT, a spectacular Aston Martin Vanquish Red Arrows Special Edition (1 of only 10!), a CAV GT40, two Ferraris, a whole brace of Aston Martins, a Jaguar E-Type FHC, two TVRs, several Lotus examples and a Jensen Interceptor!
We learned that a Tesla Model X could 'dance', sort of, much to the amusement of our visitors on Sunday. Two talented visitors drove the fastest lap times on our driving challenge simulators and won a karting experience for 4 at Red Lodge Karting.
We all had a great time, welcomed thousands of wonderful visitors and walked so many miles every day that we are seriously considering investing in a fleet of Segways for next year! Our sincere thanks to all those involved, the exhibitors, the sponsors, the venue team, the food caterers, the attraction stall holders and traders. But most of all, a huge thank you to the visitors that came along to the show and gave us such positive feedback. It is for you specifically that we will return next year, bigger and better.
On behalf of Red Dot Events and Iliffe Media, thank you. Thank you all.
We are very pleased to announce that Jules Sturgess Automotive will be participating at the forthcoming Motor Show EAST.
The team behind Jules Sturgess Automotive are car paint protection experts specialising in extreme attention to detail and customer service. No job is 'standard', every package is bespoke. They ensure a smooth, professional service where customers are at the heart of what they do, offering a truly personalised experience.
Everyday life on the roads can be a very harsh environment for your new car’s paint, with flying stones, rock salt in winter, twigs overhanging driveways- even washing your pride and joy can have a negative impact on the paintwork, with grit on sponges and drying cloths leaving unsightly hairline scratches. Not to mention other road users damaging your car in car parks and the unfortunate increase in vandalism. Jules Sturgess Automotive offers a complete solution to this costly and frustrating problem.
Skill and precision is paramount to the perfect finish. Based at a highly secured, specialist supercar storage, maintenance and sales location near Cambridge, you can guarantee your pride and joy is in good hands. They are lucky enough to boast a very quality installation booth- a purpose built sealed booth with heated HEPA air filtration, spot and strip lights for maximum illumination and surface analysis and a scissor lift with flush fit ramps allowing uninhibited access to every panel of the car.
The standard of work is proven by the fact that Jules Sturgess Automotive have become the selected installer for a number of leading superior car dealerships. They receive many outstanding customer reviews and all work comes with installation and product warranty.
With the growth of Jules Sturgess Automotive has come the introduction of other complimentary services. Unusually, they have the equipment and skills to create templates for classic cars– most PPF installers rely solely on the use of bought software. Jules Sturgess Automotive can amend these templates and create their own as required to ensure a finish as close to invisible as possible.
They also offer offer decal manufacture and installation to complete the look of your car. Once again, these are common for old and new- classic racing cars and the latest models can benefit from the finishing touch of sporty decals fitted with laser precision. Jules Sturgess Automotive are a recommended installer of Highgate House decals. If you want something bespoke and would like to discuss design, they can help with that too.
Whichever service you chose you will receive excellent value, competitive prices, exceptional quality by highly trained and experienced installers. Jules Sturgess Automotive are very proud of our renowned excellence in customer service; with no set working times, they are available on the phone 7 days a week, all day.
