FEV at the Autosport Show

FEv stand at autosport show

Due to the fact we are always somewhat swamped with orders the team at FEV do not “get out much” so the Autosport Show is one of the big highlights of the year. However this year may well have been one of the best yet for a number of reasons.

Stand out!

The first really exciting part about this years’ stand was the fact it looked so good! It may be terrible for us to say that but seeing as we didnt strictly design it we think its OK. The look and layout of it was designed by Tom Packer who did a fantasic job as many people seemed to agree. It meant we could show off a huge range of our various fire suppresion systems including our new FIA Approved 8865 system.

Visitors

There is not much point in having a stand at Autpsport if you don’t get anyone coming over to speak to you. Thankfully, we didnt have to worry and had some great discussions with customers old and new as well as a number of people finding us for the first time. It was particulary good to speak to Mike Brewer and Ed China from Wheeler Dealers who were looking into fitting a system to an upcoming build. Of course, this would not be the first time an FEV system will appear on the show as the guys used one of our extinguishers in a previous build too.

Porsche Seem to Approve!

We often see our systems in all sorts of cars and certainly get enquires about anything from a Hillman Imp to a Ferrari 458. But it was particulary pleasing to see that on the Porsche stand, 3 out of the 4 cars there had our systems in them and the one that did not was a purely road car. We have done a lot of work with Porsche and Porsche owners over the years but it is always nice to see our systems being shown off on our behalf.

Skoda Rally Team

It wasnt just Porsche that were showing off our fire extinguishers either! The Wales Rally Stand had a rather stunning Skoda Fabia Rally car set up with our new 8865 system in it too! This amazing new system will be put through it’s paces this season and hopefully many more after that.

If you could not make it to the show but you would like to talk to us about your own motorsport fire suppression needs then get in touch today. We work with teams from a club level to F1 as well a private owners too.
