    GTI International 2008 - 21st & 22nd June

    What level of interest is there in going to GTI International?

    I see from some other posts that there is a little mixed reviews. I'm sure that Neil and the team at Autometrix will be trying to improve things.

    We have to have our registration back by 31st of March.

    You just need to be a member on here to be on the stand, we say stand, but it's more like a patch for Audi-sport members, just register your interest with Rich, and he should send you out a pass nearer the date Nilz, and if you can get up early enough, we can go together on the sunday.

    GTi Club Display

    Quote Originally Posted by Shane @ Autometrix View Post
    GTI International 2008 - 21st & 22nd June

    I think that you will agree that Bruntingthorpe is a good venue for GTI International and we will be back there this year for the weekend of the 21/22 June. We have learned quite a few lessons about the site during the past two years, and will be making a few changes which will, we hope, ensure that everyone has an even better time than last year.

    Once again, we will be offering clubs special parking areas and we hope that your club will take up this opportunity. There will be no charge for these areas but, as last year, we are asking your members to book in advance. The details of how this can be done are set out on the sheet which accompanies this letter.

    Please note that the offer of special club parking is only open to cars manufactured by the Volkswagen Group, Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and Skoda (and Bentley and Lamborghini!)

    We will be running the inter-club competitions once again. The clubs which win the award for the best display, and for winning the competitions overall, will each receive a cheque for 150, together with the trophy which is held for one year.

    In addition, we have commissioned a special commemorative sticker, purely for club members, and all the cars on your club plot will receive one free of charge.

    Like last year, all visitors to GTI International will enter by the same route and your members will reach the special club areas by driving down through the car park with the rest of the general public. This makes it absolutely essential that they display their club passes in the windscreen; only those who do so will be allowed to drive right through the main car park to the club areas.

    We want to make GTI International 2008 a great event for the clubs. It is our 2ist anniversary year and, if you have any constructive suggestions as to how we can make the event better, I would be pleased to hear from you on 07944 490 431 or email shanechung@autometrix.co.uk




    Special booking scheme for club members

    In order to be as fair as possible to all the clubs which wish to have special parking areas at GTI International, we are introducing a new booking scheme.

    1. All clubs which wish to have a special parking area at the event must complete the registration form and return it to us by the 31st March 2008.

    2. At this stage, we are not asking clubs to indicate how many spaces will be required.

    3. The advance booking forms and the booking form on our website will have a space to show whether the person booking belongs to a club, and whether they would like a place in that clubs parking area.

    4. When we receive bookings which indicate this, we will check with you to confirm that the person is actually one of your members. We will probably do this in batches.

    5. As the booking forms and payments come in, we will keep a running total of the club entries. At a cut-off date two weeks before the event, we will total up the entries for each club and map out the site based on these numbers. If we have received 27 advance bookings for VWOC (GB), for example, we will allocate a space sufficient for this number of cars, plus a little extra space for any late-comers.

    6. Because we will have the addresses from the advance booking forms, the tickets and Club Display windscreen passes will be sent out directly from our office. This will avoid you having to send them out.

    7. There will always be some club members who arrive on the day who will not have club parking passes. They will be directed into the general car park and will then have to walk to the Information Centre. One of our staff will phone your club co-ordinator at the event to check that the person is a member, and that there is still available space on the plot. The person will then be given a Club display pass which will enable them to drive from the general car park to the club plot.

    This might all sound a bit complicated, but we believe that it will make the whole thing much easier to organise. It will avoid having empty plots, or ones which are only partly filled.

    Please note that only vehicles manufactured by the Volkswagen Group are permitted in the special Club parking areas.

    The above should answer your questions.

    I will get the AS.Net banner so we can show who we are. I've got everything crossed for a HOT sunny day!

    We had a good pitch last year - right next to the tyre testing and the VW/Seat stands. Unfortunately it was on the grass rather than the hard standing so it did get a bit soggy!

    Good location, crap surface, my S3 looked more like a filthy Landrover just driving the 50yards to the parking space lol.

    What, so I can't come along in my Bugatti Veyron?

    Also they should probably allow Porsche's in as well now they are wearing the company trousers! Interesting what will happen with the Porsche/Bentley/Lamborghini/Bugatti question? Too many sports cars if you ask me.

    You MUST pre-book to get a place on the stand. Should be fairly self explanatory on the form.

    I'm only kidding dude, takes under an hour to get there from here, so we should be fine.

    They sure did...but the bloke was not happy.
    Told me it was for VAG only...
    I pointed out the fact that Porsche had just bought a chunk of VAG, and that he'd let a Clio with a 1.8T go down earlier...and he backed down.

    Told me I'd not be allowed on again.

    Maybe no bad thing since I got my arse kicked by Cainey in his TT straight after!

    FYI - You book your place on the stand when you book your tickets. I do not actually need to know. Autometrix will give me details of attendees before the show and i will post it up.
