After months of build up Dubshed kicked off the NI show season in its usual monumental fashion at the Kings Hall in Belfast.
After a day of unveils and cleaning it was finally time for everyone to put their feet up and relax. We had been working in the background with our friends from Kleen Freaks on their 2nd annual Official Dubshed party at the Box Nightclub – if you were there you might have exchanged of our Bank of Kleen Freaks dollars for vodka – I know we did.
Ministry of Sound’s Majestic providing the soundtrack to a club packed with car enthusiasts giving everyone a chance to let their hair down, get to know people they’d never much of a chance to talk to at shows and dance… badly (in some cases anyway)!
For me Sunday morning was a blur having enjoyed myself just a little too much the night before, but after some coffee and a cheese & ham panini I was finally able to take a better look around the show and once again the bar had been raised.
We will leave our 2015 coverage with a list of this years winners but be sure to keep an eye out for our Dubshed after film which will be dropping very soon.
