First of all, a massive "thank you" to everyone who donated money, turned up, helped out, worked hard, made props, built gazebos and generally added to the atmosphere on the day. We were the number one team in my eyes!

The Donny South stand was the culmination of many many weeks of hard work and preparation. TeamShock had a dedicated forum to the Donny South show, discussing ideas, arranging logistics, buying goods and organising labour to make everything possible.

This year we themed the stand on the “Jap Vs Euro” debate and used Pop Art to portray this. The modified car scene has taken a huge change over the past year with Euro styling on cars becoming more and more popular but both sides will always have their loyal followers.

All the props you see in the photos were made by members using money donated by members.

Our three huge Gazebos sourced by Pasty were set up by Nick, Lianne, Pasty, Katie and Woody (any more?) the night before, working their asses off until 2 o'clock in the morning. Woody kindly donated his van to the TeamShock cause, which was a godsend to us all.

With flags, banners, bunting, gazebos and our very own DJ with smoke machine, the only place to be at Donny South was the TeamShock stand. Not even the rain could slow us down. Banging tunes all day and a lively atmosphere helped to get us 2nd place overall.

And how can we forget the lovely TeamShock ladies? Dedicated has to be the word of choice, you'd not see my legs out in the rain and wind.... A big thank you to persevering and posing with the Donny crowd Cool.

First up to receive a prize was Mr BlingRims himself and the stunning Mustang. 3rd best car at the show and well deserved!

So, at the end of the day we were called forward to the prize giving stage. Two years running we've got 3rd place, and £500 to boot. Could we better it this year? Judging by the competition we were in with as good a chance as any.....

2nd place it was. 1st could only have been a whisker away but we can't let that get us down. £1,500 in the kitty thank you very much. This kind of money will guarantee a long line of TeamShock events in the future and we can only go from strength to strength! Rest assured we are planning some sort of celebration and rewards for our members with some of this money, we're just not sure what yet!
