That’s followed by a very different range of vehicles with the Modified Nationals And The National Hot Rod & Custom Show taking over the site on May 28 – 29.

The Modified Nationals is the pinnacle of the UK modified car scene; it’s what all car shows should be like, celebrating everything that’s great about the current UK car scene in a festival type setting! Plus Hotrods showcasing a selection of the UK’s finest customised vehicles, you can also expect even more themed activities to give this event more mystique and appeal.
