Soup is a very spasmodic publication highlighting the best of the Vintage Hot Rod Association. To say its infrequent is an understatement, as there have only been two issues since 2014! Issue two was released at the end of 2021 and was a runaway success, so plans are not to make you wait as long next time.
Issue two featured the photography of Paul Martin and Jacqueline Davies, with full reports on the Hot Rod Races, GOW! and the VHRA Swap Meet. The driving force behind this issue was Paul, who really wanted to put something together with the VHRA, and when he suggested we do it in aid of Cancer Research, we were straight on board.
Printed on heavy stock recycled paper, the 92 page mag flew off the shelves and sold out in no time at all. Thanks to everyone's generous spirit, more than £1,000 was raised for charity.
Issue one of Soup was included with our 2014 Pendine Sands DVD release. It ran to just 16 pages and was a dip of the toe into producing a magazine. It would seem it must have been cold as it took so long to get round to issue two!
Featuring the fantastic photography of Neal Reed and John Isaac from the 2014 Hot Rod Races, it also included current records and those brave souls in the 100 MPH Club. Mark Gee's 32 then flathead powered coupe adorned the cover, whilst the centre spread went to Christophe Mehault and his hand built streamliner
Keep an eye out for Soup Three coming later this year. Probably.
