• Wheels Day 2017

    Wheels Day is organised by the Surrey Street Rodders and this one was the 42nd year of the event. Its the biggest Aldershot Car Show of the year and falls on Good Friday based at Rushmore Arena, Aldershot, Hampshire.

    This 2016 Wheels Day was on Good Friday 14th April 2016. Its a Hot rod and custom car show and it was a great success again last year.

    So thanks to the Surrey Street Rodders for this event. The Surrey Street Rodders have a Facebook Page for this event.

    PRE ENTRY NOW OPEN
    To show your car you had to pre-enter at www.wheelsday.net. All entrants will go through the same selection process with key SSR committee members choosing each vehicle on its individual merits. No priority will be given to restored, show or award winning vehicles. Everyone has an equal chance of being awarded a ticket.

    Like last year SSR will be offering the chance of “Earlybird” tickets to the first applicants. 500 “Early-Bird” tickets will be awarded in the last week of January 2017 to the first chosen applicants. Those who do not make it through the first stage will be placed back into the selection process for a second chance at the next 500 tickets awarded at the end of February, with the last 200 tickets being allocated 14th March.


    Tickets will again be priced at £10 per vehicle and will permit entry of your car, the driver and one passenger to the event to park in the show arena. (Extra passenger tickets will be available to purchase at the gate for £5 per adult.) If you are chosen to be awarded a show ticket you will be notified via email with a link to pay for your ticket online within 7 days. Failure to do so will void your selection and your ticket will be offered to another applicant. Arena passes will be shipped in the first week of April to your registered address.

    2017 will be 43rd Wheels Day. Hopefully many more to come too. We took two cameras with us to Wheels Day in 2016 and 2015 and a good deal of photos in the links below.

    The Solent Renegades meet at Morrisons in Horndean for a convoy up to Wheels Day, we leave Morrisons at 8am, last year we pretty much stayed all together all the way up but got split up on the entry to Wheels Day which was to be expected.

      Applied for early bird ticket for the Challenger on Tuesday.
      Perhaps not as interesting to spectators as my 10th anniversary T/A was last year but we'll see if it's accepted.

      Applied also. Hopefully my 16 year old American Muscle will be accepted, and it makes it back on the road before then. Its a late Easter, a couple of weeks later than last year which helps. :P

      Although perhaps many people on their website at the moment, all I get is
      The Surrey Street Rodder page isn’t working

      Surrey Street Rodder didn’t send any data.

      I'm running on 8, took it to work today. Running well. It's fine when cold, still need to change the pump though, hoping that will keep the pressure up when warm.

      Can't wait. Apart from the Tangmere show it's the earliest on the calendar and the first I'm likely to attend!

      Trying to, not heard back from them yet. If we cant get a stand, we probably have more chance of parking all together in the main arena anyway.

      Have you heard from them yet Dan? Apparently emails have been sent regarding club stands.

      Yeah looks like we not included in club stands. Last year was a bit of shambles as all the 57's took up like half of our club stand. Think it's the back up plan of turning up together in hope to park together.

      Hopefully I will be in the Trans-Am, if not I will hop in someone else's car. We will be going the same route, so will see you in the lay-by.
