Totalkitcar Show Moves North For Second Event At Oulton Park Circuit

totalkitcar LIVE


Two totalkitcar LIVE! events planned for 2006 after successful debut

Following the successful debut of the totalkitcar LIVE! event at Brands Hatch last year, MotorSport Vision is again linking up with totalkitcar magazine to run a second version of the event at another of its world-class venues, Oulton Park in Cheshire.

Celebrating one of the fastest-growing industries in Britain, totalkitcar LIVE! will be held at Oulton Park on March 25. The Brands Hatch event will be held again this year on October 14.

The UK kitcar industry generates £50 million annually, with 220 manufacturers selling around 4,500 cars a year. Last year’s inaugural totalkitcar LIVE! in September was universally praised by the manufacturers that exhibited, with more than 70 car sales worth a total of £250,000 being generated as a direct result of the show. That success has prompted an event to cater for car manufacturers and potential customers in the north of England.

MotorSport Vision Chief Executive, Jonathan Palmer, said: “I am delighted to welcome the kitcar fraternity to Oulton Park for the first time, particularly under the enthusiastic and professional auspices of totalkitcar magazine. The inaugural event was a huge success and I am glad that it contributed towards the continued growth of the kitcar industry. I know that this event will produce a fascinating array of truly affordable machinery and I look forward to seeing the cars being enjoyed at Oulton Park.”

totalkitcar editor Steve Hole said: “After the huge success of last year’s event, I knew there would be enormous support for an event based in the north and, having been impressed by Jonathan Palmer’s knowledge of the kitcar industry and his willingness to champion it, Oulton Park was the perfect venue. We will have no problem getting at least 45 manufacturers to the March event, including several who were at Brands Hatch and want to come again!”

The event at Oulton Park will follow the same format as last year’s totalkitcar LIVE! with manufacturers exhibiting their cars in the circuit’s 24 garages with the unique advantage that they can also demonstrate the cars for serious customers by giving passenger rides on the track.

Among the car builders based in the north-west that will be present are Warrington’s ShawSpeed, Stylus Sportscars based in Mid-Wales and Cyana Sportscars from Runcorn, Cheshire.

Tickets to totalkitcar LIVE! at Oulton Park on March 25 will cost £10 per adult or £8 in advance by visiting
