Review of DubVersion's 3rd Custom Turbo and Supercharger Meeting 12 AUG 2012 , Zevenaar,the Netherlands
We had a brand new venue this year, right in the heart of the town of Zevenaar, with lots of pubs, restaurants and places to sit and enjoy the sun on a mere 100 meters walk. The local government helped us fence off a piece of road for a little dragstrip for those VIPs who wanted to let the audiance not just look at their cars, but also hear it. Plenty of VIPs and specials used it and it was a great feature of this year's edition.
Again some VIP cars showed up without prior notice, but as we had plenty of room this time, we allowed them entry. In total we had about 80 cars of which 10 specials, including Jaguars, Corvettes, Mustangs and an M5. Superb numbers and the place was packed with people at times. The weather was just perfect, just like the local fire department had promised :)
I wish to thank everyone involved: Richard Ludwig of Ludwig Performance for donating the price for the Custom King, which meant getting a 3 dyno runs at his shop with an Land & Sea Axle Hub dyno, for up to 1000 whp per axle.
Furhter i would love to thank gemeente Zevenaar and Erwin Koers in particular, the Zevenaarse Post, the Gelderlander, all the people in the organisation setting up the venue and helping with parking, music and pictures, as well as guiding traffic, and of course all the VIP cars that showed up.
Two clubs in particular deserve special thanks: the Shoarmateam and Streetgasm. Both clubs turned up with many VIP cars.
And of course the visitors and public for showing up, making it a very memorable day.
