Turbo Thursday – A break from my normal posts!!

Turbo Thursday – A break from my normal posts!!
In a departure from my usual type of blog post, I thought I’d share with you what I did on Sunday in a little piece I am going to call Turbo Thursday!

As some of you may know, I am currently working with a local car performance shop / rally team managing their marketing & PR etc via the business I run. It’s been going swimmingly well and we were even filmed as part of a Channel 4 documentary back in August.

As I drive an Impreza myself and am head over heels passionate about the motoring world, it seemed a good fit to work with Eclipse Performance as they needed someone with the enthusiasm and drive that most agencies probably lacked.

Anyway, on Sunday the shop attended the British Drift Championship in Sunderland. We had an amazing stand with both of our rally cars on display with 3 other show cars as well as the big rally wagon. It was by far the best stand there and we certainly drew in the crowds with the Dirt3 rally car and a Subaru powered Peugeot 206!

As the drifting began, we went and watched some smokey goodness, saw some great spin outs and brilliant driving by some of the UK’s best drifters. On a wander round the pits, I got to meet Shane Lynch, ex Boyzone and now professional drifter. I have to say he was the biggest *insert expletive of choice* I have ever met but after meeting the lovely Theo Paphitis, you can’t win ’em all can you! 

It was great to meet some of the lovely folks behind the Total Car magazine series, both Lesley and their photographer Will (who had an awesome t shirt on, I must say!) and it was a bigger highlight when they did a photoshoot of the Dirt3 rally car to feature in the Total Impreza Magazine! How ace is that!!

Very kindly, my husband got on board as our in-house photographer for the day and knocked out some AMAZING photos, some of which I have added below.

All in all, it was a great day and I met a lot of wonderful people all whilst working – How bad can that be eh! With my passion for motorsport and the car world, I hope I have the chance to work with many more clients in this field!

Should you wish to see any others they are over HERE

Hope you enjoyed a little insight in to my world away from beauty blogging, and what my company does for my clients!
