The Stages @ Dubshed 2022
Eikon Exhibition Centre, Lisburn, Northern Ireland
Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd April 2022
On the 2nd & 3rd April, Northern Ireland hosted one of 2022’s most exciting events.
The Stages, supported by Monster Energy and endorsed by the famous Solberg family, was an all-new attraction and event in its own right within our Dubshed show, incorporating elements of drift, rally and time attack on a course designed by the team responsible for the better known Gymkhana Grid.
We hope you saw a variety of cars in action, from shoestring budget builds to high-end, professionally built and very powerful cars. It truly is a spectacle to watch and adds a really exciting dynamic to an already successful Dubshed!
The Stages was free for anyone who wished to participate but you must have had a RWD or AWD car to compete. There was a selection process for this whereby your car was subject to scrutiny by the Monster Team.
Do you think you have what it takes to win? We will be recruiting for our next show from December
