About the Event
The UK’s much loved and well established tuning show returns to Cadwell Park this May for the first of to Modified Live events this season.
Following the popularity of holding the event on May Day Bank Holiday Monday for past three years, organisers have chosen the same weekend but this time on Sunday, due to the change in the national holiday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE day. Once again, the event shares the occasion with the always spectacular and highly competitive Time Attack Championship – this combination of on-track action and off-track spectacle setting Modified Live apart from other tuning shows.
In the paddock, Modified Live features displays from car clubs, individual exhibits, trade stands, plus a range of other attractions and activities that take place throughout the day. There’s also the ever-popular Show and Shine competition, which is as much about modification and performance as it is a great paint job.
And of course, don’t miss the must-see, non-stop action on the unique Cadwell Park circuit, with its changes in topography and technical bends making it one of the most demanding circuits in the UK and a firm favourite with the drivers.
Today’s Time Attack competition represents the second round of this year’s Championship. You will see four runs of each class during the day: Warm-up, Practice, Qualifying and the Final. The entry is then split into three sessions for the various classes: Session one is for the Clubman Classes for cars that are close to standard specification and Pocket Rocket for smaller cars and hot hatches.
Session two comprises the Club Classes for tuned 2WD and 4WD cars, with session three featuring the awesome Pro Classes, where the highly modified and infinitely more powerful and spectacular machines demonstrate the ultimate in automotive tuning – all of them battling to set a faster lap than their category rivals.
Be in no doubt that there’s some serious machinery in operation today running in the Pro classes. In fact, there just aren’t enough adjectives to describe them – especially those that are turning out over 1000hp! Whilst in the Club classes, you’ll see road specification cars that are tuned and driven like you’ve never seen them before.
Introduced in 2019, ‘Run What You Brung’ Time Attack makes a return. This innovative addition is where owners can literally run what they own and find out what it’s like to drive against the clock in controlled and competitive conditions, without the stresses, strains – and costs – of regular motorsport.
Adding to the all-day circuit action are demonstrations that take place in between the competitive sessions. This includes a collection of awesome sounding F1 and F3000 cars – a rare sight indeed at Cadwell Park – plus a series of spectacular Drifting demonstrations taking place through Hall Bends right next to the Clubhouse; the short run-off areas and undulating surface making this one of the most technically demanding Drift courses in the world.
A track walkabout session planned for lunchtime, when we offer you the opportunity to see the Time Attack cars all together in the collecting area and the F1 and F3000 cars on the actual race track! As these single-seaters cannot transfer from the main paddock to the circuit due to the angle of incline of the access road, they have to be located in the pit lane. Therefore, so you can get a closer look at these amazing machines, we have arranged for them to drive to the upper section of circuit, where the public will be allowed onto the track for a closer look.
