The following weekend is the NSRA Billing Fun Run at Billing Aquadrome near Northampton. Normally held the same weekend as Stonor Park this year gives us a rare opportunity to do both shows.

Billing has a massive Show & Shine for pre-72 Hot Rods, Street Rods, and Customs and a B289-style display of show cars from the ‘70s and ‘80s in a special Taste Police free zone. Special guest in this section is Revenge, built by Nick Butler in the mid-70s and visiting from its current home in Spain. Special guests from the USA are artists Kenny Youngblood and Simon Evans.

Tickets are £6 adults, £3 children 5-15, under 5s go free.

Bug Jam 26

Summer is upon us, for the time being, and it seems like a good time to mention Bug Jam 26 at Santa Pod on 20th - 22nd July, especially as we'll be celebrating Lo 'E' Nuf''s 20th Anniversary year there.

On the track there's drag racing from Outlaw Flat Four, Super Modified, Street Eliminator, Outlaw Anglia and Super ET. Also on track will be VWDRC and, on Friday and Saturday, there's RWYB.

There's 2 days of Show & Shine. Saturday is for Rat Look and Military and on Sunday it's the turn of the shiny stuff.

Evening entertainment has, on Friday, The Wholls, Beatlemania and The Complete Stone Roses on the main stage with Ha├žienda in the Dance Zone, Carwash with Wham!Duran in the Retro Zone and Motown in Fuelers Bar. Saturday sees The Blind Hearts, The Current and Simon & Oscar from Ocean Colour unplugged on the main stage with Propaganda indie night in the Retro Zone, Super Hero themed night in the Dance Zone and Foam Party in Fuelers Bar.
