WHEELY GOOD SHOW:

-

It wouldn’t be a Players event without a smattering of killer rolling stock. Aerodiscs were out in force more than ever before. Joining the Carrerra Bodyshop Mk4 Escorts in the look, were Dave Carpenter with his peppermint green Mk1 Fiesta, many of the old school Golfs and Lancias rocking the ‘80s motorsport vibe, and of course the aforementi­oned LTO x JPPerforma­nce Mk2.

Wheel whores of a retro persuasion were treated to the normal mix of BBS, Ronal, Compomotiv­e, and Gotti period split-rims, whilst the trusty old BBS RS was still well represente­d, and the number of E-Series magnesium motorsport rims seems to grow by the year. Two stand out examples of this aficionado approach were Andrew Carter’s Gorgeous Red 16v Mk2 Golf that took pride of place on JTech’s stand with its gold E26 BBS wheels and the fabled ‘Mexorcist’ Mk2 Escort belonging to Andy Devine with its 16in E48 centre-lock exSierra Touring Car hoops.

The practice of stepping up rims through fitting larger outers continued, as did utilising OEM wheels to create custom splits. Liam O’Brien sported both techniques with his CR Customs 3-piece Style 32 based beauts.

Rotiform continued with their bid for world domination and the wheels were well represente­d from the modern-looking 18in OZRs on Sean Reilly’s Clio RS 200, the flamboyant fluorescen­t pink USFs on Liberty Walk EU’s new Supra to the retro forged IGS model on Jay Mac’s Mk2 Golf.
