British Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell attended a photo-shoot at London's Alexandra Palace on Tuesday, in advance of the forthcoming Xtreme Wheels International show. Cracknell, who has a keen eye for extreme machinery, arrived at the event in style... at the wheel of the new 4.6litre, V8-engined Ford Mustang. This 300bhp 'Muscle Car' is hot off the production line and was kindly provided for the day by American Car Imports.
James, awarded an OBE in the New Year honours list, was accompanied at the photo-shoot by stunning machinery from the world of Drag Racing and took time-out getting to grips with the controls of the Xtreme Racing blown alcohol altered Drag Racer.
The Xtreme Wheels International show will bring together under one roof the finest examples of American Muscle, Performance Cars, Hot and Street Rods, Custom Cars, Modifieds, American, Hot Hatches, Imports and European Drag Racing. Taking place on the 19th/20th February 2005, there will be something to whet the appetite of anyone with an interest in cars and bikes, however extreme or wacky!
The event includes over 200 exhibits, glamour, trade stands and more than its fair share of public interaction. Car launches, an engine strip down, a Drag Strip, live stage action and huge Tamiya remote control vehicle track layout, with competitions for the public throughout the weekend, are just some of the activities taking place.
The show will include the most popular exhibits from 2004, such as a 10,000 horse-powered car equipped with Strike Fighter jet engine, alongside new examples and a few surprises!
James will be at the show, as will the stunning new Mustang. Tickets can be booked online at http://www.xwishow.com or through the XWI hotline on 01483 236363.
