Slyfield Market, near Guildford, Surrey.

This was the first custom show I'd ever been to and coupled with my trusty 'disk' camera, a photographic delight, here's a sample of what I saw.

Good Friday 1992

Slyfield Market, near Guildford, Surrey.

It took eight years before I returned to this fantastic season opener, this time armed with a better camera! The format/layout had remained the same but the show lacked the dragster displays.

Good Friday 1993

Slyfield Market, near Guildford, Surrey.

This was the last year the venue was used and despite this being a wet show it was still very busy. The following year the show moved to Rushmoor Arena for the first time.

Good Friday 1994

Rushmoor Arena, Aldershot, Hants.

The first time at this venue, and while it made the show look small, little did the organisers know then how much it would grow. The day was preceeded with wet weather which made for boggy conditions under foot.

Good Friday 1995

Rushmoor Arena, Aldershot, Hants.

Possibly due to last years rain, the show was shifted across the road to the hard standing area and was much more suitable, especially with the increasing number of cars attending.
