Event Report - Pride of Longbridge 2017
A week has gone by already! Catch up with all the news from Metropower's stand at Pride of Longbridge here...
Well, that's Pride and Longbridge all done and dusted for another year and the show season is back with a bang. The weather proved us wrong and really did do it's duty especially after the 2016 cancelled event. There were some tomato coloured faces by the late afternoon, that's for sure.
MetroPower makes its mark
We had a great turnout on the MetroPower stand which also incorporated the Metro Owners Club and its members. It was a nice collaboration and certainly made stand 7 the best of the whole event; not that we're biased or anything (!) Metropower's crowdfunded gazebo took pride of place and was surrounded by the 6 picked Metros to front the stand which drew a lot of attention throughout the day. The Metropower stand was also featured in the Bromsgrove Standard as part of their Pride of Longbridge report.
Many members and our admins were wearing our new merchandise range of hoodies and T-shirts; which can be ordered from the Store. The new site stickers also proved popular, send us your photos of them proudly displayed on your car(s) to be featured in our Gallery.
The whole stand in general got a great reception not only from Metro owners new and old but also other PoL car owners and the general public, and our laminated flyers certainly helped to raise our profile and get the Metropower name and new website address out there.
We had an estimated 60+ Metros in attendance at PoL which included some of the rarest models including, a Studio 2, 6R4, a certain Flame Red G reg GTi & a 114 cabriolet that had travelled from France that very day! Our furthest travelled member? We also had 2 of the very best 1.8 Turbo Mk3's on display at the forefront of the stand. A great turnout! Bring on PoL 2018!
We need your photos!
We have a fantastic gallery of photos to be uploaded very soon covering most of the stand but we also want the best of our members' shots in there too! Send us your favourite images either via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting to our Facebook page and we'll add them to the Event Gallery when it goes online. Note: by sending us an image you agree to allow Metropower to display it on the website and its social media pages. If you require an image credit please let us know when contacting us and we'll ensure your name \ logo is added.
