Event Report - Pride of Longbridge 2019

Catch up with all the news from Metropower's stand at Pride of Longbridge 2019 here...

With the weather being kind Pride of Longbridge 2019 ran like clockwork, with a great turnout from our members and those of the Metro Owners Club alike. With both groups side by side there was an impressive array of Metros in attendance and they were certainly noticed judging by the number of visitors to the stand during the course of the day.

It was great to see some new faces and cars on the stand too, in part thanks to the wide reach of social media - keep sharing your posts and photos as it really does help raise the site's profile. We would also welcome your feedback on the Eventbrite booking system for future events, get in touch using the Contact Us page or email directly metropower.website@gmail.com

Best of Metropower 2019

Judging our first official award was no mean feat with the quality of the cars on the stand. In fact we could easily have given it many times over but after much deliberation the admin team (eventually) decided on Simon Wheatcroft's stunning red GTi. Congratulations Simon!

Presenting the award was our new admin and stand sponsor Steven Gerard Morris from Fit4Sport.
