Each guest is making their first visit to the Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals, with Saxty on-site both days, while the Modded Motors team is at Carlisle on Saturday, May 11 only. Saxty worked as a designer for Ford in the United Kingdom and later in various roles for BMW, Jaguar, Rolls Royce, Nissan, Volkswagen, and more. He eventually turned his focus to writing. Not only will Steve be at Carlisle to give a presentation at the BMW-CCA tent each day at 2 PM, but he’ll also have books available for sale and will happily autograph them for guests too.

Ricky and Krystal Licerio, a.k.a Moded Motors will be in Carlisle on Saturday.

On Saturday, as crowds and cars roll onto the Showfield, so will Ricky and Krystal Licerio, a.k.a. Modded Motors on the socials. Their channels primarily focus on the Alfa Romeos but they have other automotive content and passions too. The majority of their content is based on the Giulia and Stelvio where they critique the vehicles, modify them and just generally have fun with them! During their time at Carlisle, they’ll be guests of the Central PA Alfa Romeo Club and will likely spend the majority of their time in that area of the Showfield. If they aren’t with the Alfas, they’ll be out roaming the event and filming content.
