Modified Nationals Kicked off at 2pm on Friday 23rd May. The weather was good - the sun was shining and the weekend was kicking off on a high !! Everyone set up camp and prepared for the night ahead of them. At 10pm people started heading to the rave for a good time - Some people couldn't handle their drink and sadly couldn't just enjoy the night. Someone decided to let off tear Gas and an ambulance had to be called to check people over.
I on the other hand didn't let that spoil my weekend - waking up on Saturday made me realize that modified nationals was gonna be the same as every year .. a complete wash out, and i wasn't wrong. No one bothered to put their car on show & everyone was gone by 12 o'clock... You cant blame them because it was non stop rain all of Saturday. I decided not to camp Saturday night as my tent was flooded so was my bedding...
Sunday morning the sun was shining and it looked to be a beautiful day - everyone was up and ready for the show and there was some amazing cars on show. I went out and bought a hose pipe so we could all wash our cars on the stand 'JustACarClub'. It took me a good 2 hours to walk around the arena inside and look at the stalls - and then another few hours taking pictures on the showground of all of the stands.
On Sunday the weather stayed nice all day which helped make modified nationals the best one so far.
I think modified nationals should have more going on rather then it just being a car show they should have displays and something to watch. They do a small drifting arena but its not fun watching cars go in circles. the best part was when one of the drift cars lost a tyre...
Hopefully next year there will be better weather on the Saturday and even more cars on show to look at.
The hot rod show was also bigger and better this year with more hot rods on show and a bigger area full of american muscle !!
