    Yes, we have a stand, jojo is organising:
    Audi Driver International 2007

    Have you been to one of these before?? TBH you are driving an awful long way and unless you take your car out on the track, I think you might be a bit disappointed.

    Because there are likely to be very few traders there and not that many cars or clubs (when compared to something like GTi International which in itself is a shadow of it's former self - but that's another argument). The event is primarily a track day with a bit of a car show tacked on the side. If you go along with that in mind then you'll be fine. If you are expecting a massive Audi fest then based upon previous years, I think you'll be disappointed - especially if you are travelling a long way and having to stay over.

    I was at the Autometrix day at Combe back in August - open to all VAG cars - I was out on track in the Ibiza. It was really quiet then too.

    I'm going to see an Audi R8 on the track, not going to see one being driven properly anywhere else, if I'm lucky, I'll probable give it a run for it's money on the track also haha.

    Ok, it may be quiet, but its the turnout that makes a show. if we all think "sod it, i aint going" then its never gonna be a good one!

    Yes you can, you either book a complete morning or afternoon session, or an individual session, each session is around 15-20minute intervals.
