As we said last year, there are few shows that we look forward to every year as much as Carlisle. Saabs@Carlisle is a Saab show-within-a-show at the larger Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals in pastoral Carlisle, PA. In 2016 the Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals merged with the Carlisle Performance & Style, and it was a huge success. Sure, it rained for what seemed like the entire weekend, but it was still amazing. This year there is no rain in the forecast and the weather looks perfect. In 2017 we’re rolling with five people in two Saabs after bringing a Saab and – gasp! – a Volvo in 2016. The show ramps up on Friday, crescendos on Saturday, and tapers off on Sunday. People drive hundreds and hundreds of miles to attend, so many people need most of Friday and Sunday to travel. We’ll be there the entire time, soaking it
There’s a running gag with the inner New England dub scene that it will ALWAYS rain for the Dustoff. Meant to “Dust Off” your VW or Audi show car after a winter of careful storage, the Dustoff 2017 is meant to be the groan and stretch after a long hibernation, and it’s HUGE! Thousands of devote attendees filled their cooling systems put air in their tires, and put another zip tie on their distributor caps (I kid) and made the hike out to Thompson Speedway this April 29th, and we were there selling eEuroFest packages, giving away site credits, and soaking up the sun rays for the first time in all the Dustoffs we’ve attended. We are exited to have Blake and Tom as the car show managers for OUR show at Lime Rock (we are calling in the bigtime experience), and this year the show ran without a hitch.
eEuroparts is very excited to announce our partnership with Indian Summer Racing and sponsorship of Travis Washay and his Mini Cooper (he’ll need some Mini Cooper parts) for the 2017 season of the Pirelli World Challenge® Championships. Travis drives the Mini Cooper in the Touring Car B (TCB) class, a small stock-style class where cars use manufacturer-set specifications. The Pirelli World Challenge® Championships The Pirelli World Challenge® Championships provide teams, manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers a competitive production-based race series in which to prove their products. The series dates back to 1972, when the Sports Car Club of America formed a new club racing class for stock street cars. It wasn’t until 2012 that the Pirelli World Challenge® introduced the Touring Car B spec class, which has gone on to feature up and coming drivers breaking into the professional ranks and driving cars like the Honda FIT, Fiat 500, Mazda 2, Chevy Sonic, and the
If you are looking for some light at the end of the cold rainy tunnel known as April, look no further than Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park for the New England Dustoff.

With the big show looming not so far in the distance, and a few warm days previewing us for the invariable awesome weather that will befall us June 9-10, we wanted to post an eEuroFest update to keep our attendees in the loop. We have a few changes, and ticket orders are definitely starting to pick up. It’s important to start out with some exciting new activities for VIP’s coming up, which will add value to the limited amount of VIP passes we have available.
