Fast car Festival 2012: part one

TrackandTuner.com visited the 2012 Fast car Festival.

The Fast car Festival is an event on Zandvoort circuit for real car enthusiasts, from a BMW M3, Ferrari F430 to a Nissan Skyline and big muscle cars. At the Fast car Festival there is space for all kinds of cars but it’s all about the passion for your car.

All these cars are selected on their quality, looks and above all performance.

The Fast car Festival focuses around and on the track. With driving sessions on the track everybody is allowed to go on track for 20 minutes and experience Zandvoort circuit.

But there is also a professional time attack event. This is where the true power monsters will go on track to set the fastest time of the day. More about this in part two.

Around the track there are special areas for clubs, companies and the Toyo Tires supercar paddock.

Here you can see the new products tuner companies have to offer, just like the MSL E92 Carbon airbox system from Mosselman or the Nissan GTR Switzer P800 performance package from TotalCarConcept.

This year the Fast car Festival was the starting point of the StreetGasm Challenge. A rally trough Europe for cars above 250hp. Mainly import cars like the Toyota Supra and the Nissan Skyline.

This year’s special was the BMW ///M paddock area combined with the Breyton BMW parade on the track. This resulted in some beautiful BMW ///M cars like the classic M3 e30 and the popular M3 e92 coupe. We also did a lap in a M3 e46 equipped with a Supersprint lightweight race exhaust.

Around the track there was a lot to see. At the show and shine paddock where the cars were judged on looks and performance. The Toyo Tire supercar paddock was filled with exotic cars like Ferrari’s, Audi R8’s and even a Bugatti Veyron.

But the biggest surprise was a Mini fitted with a Hayabusa Turbo engine. This little Mini was making 300 hp and capable of 500 hp weighing only 570 kg. A true rocket which comes flying by in the video.
