There were drifting displays and visitors were able to watch cars reaching their limits. The first ever DI National Championship Final was held in conjunction with Trax, one of the most popular and well attended performace shows of the year. There were at least 20,000 fans on hand to witness some of the best drift drivers in Europe.

The pit lane hosted the trade area and was packed from open to close. “The trade area took over the whole paddock, the pit area and certain parts of the infield.” said Burdis. “K&N had a large presence and set up a garage full of product displays and airflow demonstrations. The K&N crew was busy all day dealing with just about every request possible for every vehicle. K&N also gave away free key rings, leaflets, decals and photo shoots with the K&N model and the Cooper Motorsport Autograss car.”
