Sunday morning I made my way over to the Harewood Hill Climb for Fueled Society 2017. After seeing the shots from the last one I was excited to see what was going to be on show. I found the Hill Climb easy enough, although I did get a little worried as I pulled on to a long flat road. I was expecting to be at the bottom of a steep hill not the top.
When you pull in your greeted by the Fueled Society team who direct you to ether the show ground or the parking area. I’m pleased to say my little 5 made the cut to show. Price on the gate was £10 which sounds a lot but isn’t that bad. Not when you consider the team that was organising the show ground as well as the entertainment that had been put on. The event it’s self was very family and dog friendly.
There was a couple of trade stands, Kleen Freaks, Fueled Society, who were giving away free Monsters and Told Vape Co. They also had a live dj and some fairground rides for the kids. As well as a great selection of food trucks.
There was a great range of cars on show. From your classic American Muscle cars right though to your JDM classics. And everything else in between. When walking round the atmosphere was pretty chilled out, everyone was enjoying the weather and having a laugh. How car shows should be.
There was loads of amazing cars but I have to give a shout out to this Fiesta. Being a child of the 90’s I grew watching the boy racers in their hot hatches. There has been some very clever mods to this Fiesta that keep a retro feel to it but it wouldn’t look out of place parked next to some of the more recent fords. It won’t be to everyones taste, but I like it.
Another one, is this Audi TT. Bagged and smoothed on those wheels. When the owner bought them, they made the right choice. Running stretched tires does add to the look, personally I’m more function of form. However I do appreciate the work that has gone in to this TT making it look this good.
No Fueled Society write up would be complete without mentioning the Harewood Hill Climb. Being able to walk around the pits and talk to drivers is a great introduction to the motorsport.
Not to mention being close to the action on when watching from the spectating areas around the track.
Admittedly I know very little about hill climb racing. I was surprised at how narrow the track was and the range of cars that competed. It is intoxicating watch.
The other thing that struck me was how nice the drivers were. Happy to chat even while waiting to go to the start line.
It was a great day of cars, racing, food and even a little sun. I can’t wait for the next one.
