    Re: Audi Driver International 22nd/23rd Oct. Who\'s going?

    Was a good day out. Although I was expecting it to be bigger with more car and trade stands, but what was there was still good.

    Big respect to Rich A3 Turbo for taking me out on the track in his car. Boy does that thing fly [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Hope you find out what the noise was.

    Good to put some faces to names also.

    Cheers to Joe and Rich for the company on the way down (By the way I could hear what you guys were saying on the walkie talkies [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img])

    Finally I think I will have to get my car on the track next year as I enjoyed the three parade laps at the end [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I was leaving myself a gap between the car in front then booting it through the corners and up the straights [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]


    We need pictures though guys [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Yeah, managed to hit 150(kph) on the way back as it was clear for a little stretch, then drove like a grandad for the rest of the way [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Thanks Mark. Hopefully next time it will be on form! I think that the engine mounts are on their way out..pretty sure now it was the downpipe hitting on some heatshielding.

    Next time i will have actually prepeared for the track too! pads were on their way out bit as was fluid!

    Was great to meet lots of new faces and familiar ones too! Was a good day all in all!

    Glad to see that the AS.N stand had a great turnout! Sadly didnt get to meet all of you guys. Next time!

    Re: Audi Driver International 22nd/23rd Oct. Who\'s going?

    I was on route yesterday, got called back to work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] didn't get that far so as soon I finished set off again. got there very late.
    didn't see the Audi-Sport sign (as in picture above)... sorry I missed you guys yesterday.
    some very fast and impressive cars on the track... couple of old TTs parked up looked very clean... Would have like to get on the parade, maybe next year... For the short time I was there it was very good, but missed all the comps. and would have liked to have a go on the driving experience. did anyone have ago, what was the prizes?

    Yep good day did not have much time to chat to anyone as I spent most my time running around and trying to reset the radio in the 2.8 to no avail.

    So please accept my apologies if I was a little unsociable.

    Anyway here a couple of pic's of the two crashed cars involved in that 16 year old kid who took the S4 for a spin and then crashed it as everyone knows.

    Re: Audi Driver International 22nd/23rd Oct. Who\'s going?

    and... I cant believe that Audi didnt ask for proof of age/license etc.. I saw quite a few kids having a blast in the S4's.. lets be honest, they're a bit of a handful in a confined space... dread to think what I would have done in one at the age of 16/17!
    Hope this doesnt put Audi UK off coming back.

    Re: Audi Driver International 22nd/23rd Oct. Who\'s going?

    hi, cheers for a great day out to all who organised, got to meet a few people, but lost amongst all the shiny bits for sale, and of course removing the engine from the back of my car. so sorry if i come across as a bit distant!
    got to say that yes bad that a 16 yr old crashes into somebodies pride and joy, but agree that some proof of age and license should have been asked for. who could have stopped the guy getting away woth the car if he really wanted to take it from the show?
    anyway enough complaints, still enjoying the sounds of cars hurtling past like mrc s4!

    Only kidding,

    Have to say Thanks every one for voting for me considering I did not get a chance to chat to many people.

    MarkyB you got mine, thought your car look very sweet.

    I have to say I thought our stand was one of the best there for variety of cars and quality of cars and it was only the first year for Audi-Sport.net

    Maybe we can get something going for more events next year.

    Once again thanks

    I have to say I thought our stand was one of the best there for variety of cars and quality of cars and it was only the first year for Audi-Sport.net

    Maybe we can get something going for more events next year.

    Yeah it was a good stand, and yes I would like to do some more events next year. So lets have a look and see what events will be taking place next year when the dates have been decided.

    GTi international, E38, etc...
