    Post Forge Action Day 2012 @ Castle Combe (Photo heavy)

    Today we headed down to Castle Combe to the Forge Action Day, an annual event that Forge have been holding for the last couple of years.

    After cutting through the dense fog on the M4 by Swindon the sky soon broke and glorious sunshine bathed the track for the rest of the day.

    The Action Day is a multi-brand event and there are a broad spectrum of cars on show from a range of disciplines (track / drift / scene ). It's the first time I've been to an 'open' show, so there were less familiar faces than the usual VAG scene shows, but it was interesting to have a poke around some different metal. A real range in quality, and it makes you appreciate how high the standard is in the VAG stable, but then many of the cars on show today were time attack or proper track workhorses. There are also manufacturer stands, obviously Forge, but then Eibach, Scorpion, Revo, Lichfield, Pipercross, Powerflex.....

    I took a few photos whilst I was wandering about, so I thought I'd share them.

    1) Audi's at the show

    RS3 with Forges new CAI


    RS3 on Forge stand


    Black / Orange S3 on Secret SEAT club stand


    Decked A4 S-Line Avant on club stand


    RS4 Bi-turbo engine bay on club stand

    8L meets 8P


    Does someone on here own this? (Thought it was Fran's when I first saw it, but possibly not)


    Stanced A3 8P


    RS4 on Forge stand




    TT Shops TT-RS


    Revo Stasis Stand (S5/S3)



    2) Other VAG marques

    Golf meets Bora




    3) Non VAG cars

    One of my very fave's, the 1M


    A tidy Cayman S


    Renault Clio V6 Cup Car


    SCC's Focus RS Mk2


    Bonkers rear engined Mini


    New Toyota GT86 in a manky burnt umber


    AMG C63 and Godzilla


    Apologies, chopped iPhone pic. Bentleys and stanced RX8



    4) For your pleasure

    Ummm, I'm not sure...Saxo???

    Balls, shame I didn't see you. My arm was playing up so we had to leave early (broke it mountain biking 2 weeks ago) and I was struggling to carry camera bag! Hence why I got the run on you!
