Modified Madness in Bangor!

Car enthusiasts from all over Ireland will gather in Bangor on Easter Monday, April 25th (11am – 6pm) for Showerks first ever Live Show. The event will display a huge array of modified cars and competition promises to be fierce as exhibitors compete in categories for; “Best Interior,” “Best Stance,” “Best ICE (In Car Entertainment),” “Show & Shine (Cleanest Car)” and  “Car of the Show.”

Over 150 cars modified to various degrees by passionate car lovers, ranging from sports, kit to vintage cars will fill the McKee Clock Arena. The event promises to display cars “more luxurious than a Bentley, faster than a Ferrari and with more toys than a Mercedes!”  All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Paul Ward at the Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. The event is kindly being supported by Redbull.

Showerks was started in 2010 by six like minded individuals from the modified car scene who wanted to create a fresh approach to modified cars and Showerks was born. The blog allows enthusiasts to come together to share ideas, information and photographs.  Their library of show pictures and reports is building daily and can be found at;

Gary McCarroll of Showerks comments; “”We are delighted to be holding our Live Show in Bangor as part of the Easter festivities. It’s sure to be a great day, and for such a good cause. I urge everyone to come and check out the top modified cars from around Ireland.”

The PSNI and the Fire Services will also have a presence on the day relaying safety information to exhibitors and members of the public.

Stephen Dunlop, Town Centre Manager has declared Queen’s Parade Car Park free for the duration of the day, an excellent example of local organisations working together.

The event promises to be a fantastic day out for young and old alike so come along and prepare to amazed by this motoring extravaganza!
