Five Years & Still Going Strong.
It's hard to believe that our Belgian Chapter event is in it's fifth year. RollHard's foundation is really simple, friendships between car guys with something in common, which is what makes our network something quite special. We have slightly different perspectives on cars and car culture and both our UK and Belgian events reflect this. Our Belgian event is an immense automotive showcase which brings together the best from all across mainland Europe. The support shown was amazing again this year. With cars attending from all over Europe, including France, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland and the UK, it was truly an international affair. We can't thank you enough for the support you guys continue to show our events and the miles you travel to be with us.
Once again, the weather was on our side and that mixed with the simple recipe of chilled vibes and awe-inspiring metal, The Belgium Chapter 2017 was a huge showcase event. Turning an ordinary industrial estate in Aarschot into a show ground is not an easy task, for starters, every business on the estate was required to give permission for RollHard to use their grounds. Luckily, most businesses close in Belgium on Sundays, which certainly helps. The next permissions required came from the town's council and then finally the local police force – a tough task when car modifications in Belgium are not even legal/permitted. With full sign-off granted for our event, it was all systems go...
Bring on the Weekend.
What makes travelling to The Belgium Chapter worth the distance? Well, the Belgian hospitality, amazing steaks and the quality of the cars in attendance, basically. Once more our Belgian brothers and sisters have pulled together yet another impressive event, blessed with the summer sun, showing just how strong our community. We cant thank you guys enough for the support shown towards RollHard - it is incredibly humbling and we appreciate you guys so much.
We were supported again by our friends at CSB Engineering who provided us with our awards. RollHard events are a celebration of car culture and we were over the moon to chose the following as the winners for 2017 (in no particular order!!)...
And possibly the rarest car at this year's event, this stunning BMW Z1 also picked up a winners trophy...
