Successful Autosport show for Milltek Sport
Milltek kick-started 2010 with an incredibly successful Autosport International show at the NEC arena, Birmingham. Held between the 14th and 17th January, Milltek exhibited a vast array of brand new products such as the new Focus RS, Audi R8 V10, Audi TT RS, VW Golf Mk5 GTi VW Racing-spec with EC-approved catalyst, Porsche 997 Turbo manifolds and much more besides. For the first time ever, Milltek had a separate stand in conjunction with catalyst supplier HJS, in the Engineering hall. The Milltek catalyst exhibition featured hi-flow sports catalysts, FIA-approved Motorsport catalysts, re-packable silencers and, other motorsport-related products.
One of the cars of the moment is the new Ford Focus RS and that was the vehicle Milltek chose as their main show car. The Focus RS, one of the Milltek fast fleet, had undergone a number of modifications in preparation for its appearance. It was fitted with a full turbo-back Milltek exhaust system, the suspension was lowered with the help of some H&R lowering springs and the standard wheels were treated to a full makeover. It’s hard not to notice a Focus RS especially when dressed in full eye-catching Milltek livery, it attracted a lot of positive attention and comments from trade customers and consumers alike.
Milltek Sport, in combination with one of their top UK distributors, AmD Essex are entering the 2010 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). The AmD Milltek Sport VW Golf is stirring interest around the World from motorsport fans as it’s the first Volkswagen Golf to enter the BTCC for more than 20 years. The car was on display as part of the AmD Technik Essex's stand in the Pistonheads hall and attracted attention from almost everyone who walked near it. It was really encouraging to have a number of showgoers actually come to the Milltek stand specifically wanting more information on the car.
The whole Milltek Sport team would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit our stand during the four days and we look forward to seeing you either at one of the many shows that we will be exhibiting at this year or, of course, next years’ Autosport International show.
