FixxFest 16 is right around the corner!

If you've been to FixxFest before, you already know how awesome it is, and if you haven't, read on and let us tell you a little about the event! Simply put, FixxFest is the largest European-focused car show in the southeast! With thousands of unbelievable cars in attendance every year, we're hoping to make this year's show the biggest and best yet. With 15 other shows under our belt, UroTuning is excited to be ramping up for FixxFest's 16th year at the Bradenton Motorsport Park here in Florida.

FixxFest is an all day affair filled with cars, friends, tailgating, food, beer and of course drag racing. In addition to the car show and german food truck, for only 10 dollars you can run your car on the drag strip all day, racing against friends and pushing your car to reach a personal best! It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned drag racer or if you've never been on a track. Everyone and anyone can sign up and send it down the quarter-mile.

There's no shortage of things to do at FixxFest - fun at the event includes: a Pumpkin Pie Eating contest, Raffle Prizes, Drag Racing, Best of Show cars for various categories, Multiple Vendors with Show Specials, infamous Car Limbo, Bring your own BBQ, Trophies, Hanging out with friends, after party with sunset cruise.. and much much more!

The Best of Show Award! This is where the best of the best show off the goods! Grouped into specific classes the best of show field votes for their favorite car to determine the winner. Classes include: Mk7 Golf/GT, Mk6 Golf/GTi, Mk6 Jetta, Mk5 Golf/GTi/Jetta, Mk4 Golf/GTi, Mk4 Jetta, Mk3 Golf/Jetta, Mk1/Mk2, Corrado, Passat/CC, Audi B9/C8/8V, Audi B8/C7, Audi B5/B6/B7/8P/C5/C6, BMW 2006-up, BMW Pre-2006, Mini Cooper, All Other Euro, and Classic VW!

For voting we keep it fair and simple by only allowing those entered in the Best of Show contest to vote for their favorite car in all the other classes. You can register now on our facebook page, or register at the event, although we recommend registering ahead of time as slots are limited!

A crowd favorite at FixxFest, low car limbo is always a good laugh. Grab some friends to pile in, air out, put the top down, and do whatever you have to do to prove that you're car is the lowest at the event!

Participants drive under the "Limbo" pole as we drop it lower and lower. The last one standing is the winner (usually accompanied with several friends inside and on top of the car!) Prize mugs and bragging rights for the winners!

 

There will be lots of Vendors at the show supporting FixxFest. Many will have parts for sale and some great FixxFest only deals. Please support our vendors as without them FixxFest would not be possible. Vendors from last years event include ABT, AWE Tuning, AV Motorsports, Black Forest Industries, Carbon Copy Hydro, Castor, Corr Motorsports, Das Autoworks, Fabless, Forge, Florida Carbon Cleaning, Garage 316, German Plates, Graphix Mafia, I Love Driving Slow, Liqui Moly, Panzer Performance, Rotiform, Seasucker, SoloWerks, and Tampa Autosports!

 

After a day of fun at FixxFest don't head home!

The fun doesn't stop when the show ends! Leaving the drag strip we will head to Downtown St. Petersburg to the Hofbräuhaus German Beer Hall hosted by UroTuning! With traditional German fair and a wide range of fresh-brewed beers, it's the perfect end to your day at FixxFest 16!
