Autosport International: a great start to 2012
Autosport International, the UK’s premiere Motorsport-focussed show, has been and gone in a blur and took everyone by surprise by being the busiest, most eventful and most successful show for 10 years or more!
A packed NEC saw superb crowds from all corners of the globe thronging into the UK’s ‘season starter’ and the Milltek team were pleased to welcome a great many of them onto their stand, where their latest exhaust fitments and Audi RS3 demo car seemed to strike quite a chord.
Milltek’s reach extended far beyond the grey carpet of their own stand, they had a number of show cars featuring their products spread out across the NEC including: 850bhp Time Attack Nissan GT-R thrilling crowds in the Live Action Arena, VW Scirocco and VW Golf GTi Mk6 on the Volkswagen Racing stand, BTCC VW Golf on the Pipercross stand, Milltek’s own VW Golf R on the Shark Performance stand and a Jaguar XKR on the Adamesh stand.
Milltek in Motorsport for 2012 Being a genuine motorsports show, Milltek chose to launch their brand new range of ultra-lightweight FIA-approved motorsport catalysts which proved extremely popular among racing teams and spectators alike.
The Milltek name has always been synonymous with motorsport and the Autosport show saw them confirm an even greater involvement in motor racing for 2012 with sponsorship of the UK Time Attack series as well as sponsoring Time Attack competitor Richard Marshall and his orange 850bhp Nissan GT-R (which is actually no longer orange but an equally colourful shade of green!).
As a long-standing sponsor of Volkswagen Racing here in the UK, Milltek has announced that it’s stepping up to take a more active role in the series and will be providing more than just racing exhaust solutions to all the teams. More information will be released very shortly…
Phil Millington, Managing Director of Milltek, commented “It was great to see such a positive start to the 2012 season and we feel privileged to have received such great feedback from both our dealers and end-users over the course of the last four days. We’d like to thank everyone for coming to see us and for your kind words and continued support”.
Milltek would like to wish everyone a fantastic year ahead and they hope to see you at some of the many shows and motor races throughout the coming season.
