Amidst the gentle patter of rain on the typically sun-kissed south coast, the curtains began to close on our thrilling EMMA UK Sound Quality Season 2023. Despite the weather, the unwavering competitive dedication we’ve witnessed all year endured. We were especially honoured to be hosted this round by Celsus ICE, home to some of the most renowned brands in the 12v industry, including Morel, Dynamat, Kicker, and more recently, Wavetec.

As the judges methodically worked through the competition cars, anticipation filled the air for some classes, as competitors brought their A-game for the day ahead. You see, not only was the event an excellent showcase of the diverse range of SQ audio cars that the UK scene has to offer, with bacon butties and a continuous flow of coffee available to all attendees during the morning half of the day, this was also the final opportunity for competitors to secure both Round 5 silverware and, in some cases, decisive league points, striving to be crowned UK Championship Winner and securing a coveted invitation to the EURO Finals.
To win a UK championship, competitors must accumulate the most points from each round of the competition throughout the year. The competitors who succeed the most consistently throughout the year and are therefore the most deserving are crowned UK championship winners and earn their place to represent the UK at the European finals, held in Austria. For those unfamiliar with the European finals, unlike the American World Series, more than one country attends this competition to determine the best of the best. Only the top two competitors from each class can attend and compete for the European title.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to all competitors who poured their hearts, blood, sweat (and tears) into this season’s competition. A special salute to three competitors is necessary, as Sandra Kirton of Team GZ, Lee Dunston, and Pritesh Patel (both) from Team Platinum-In-Car have all achieved a flawless record of five 1st place victories out of all five rounds in the 2023 season. Please join me in sending them a message on Facebook to say well done; they deserve it.
