    Well you made such a good job of sorting it out on Sunday it would be rude for me to step on your toes for this one


    But if you want to take me under you wing for this one I'm more than happy and have plenty of time to help out with anything

    I think you'll find our GTI International 'organiser' RichA3turbo is already all over this...
    He's made contact and sored out some Club Parking.
    I believe he is also the keeper of the A-S.net banner.

    I'm sure there will be a decent turn out of cars..as usual!

    See you all there...

    oh right ! I can assume he is going to chime in soon to let us know etc etc.

    Its nice to also find where the banner went as we tried to contact the powers that be to be able to use it for the GTi Spring Festival to no avail so we had another made ( thanks Voorhees)

    Ah, this must mean it's time for my annual post bemoaning what Inters has turned into compared to the heydays of 10 or 12 years ago.

    For those of a nervous disposition, look away now...

    In summary, unless you want do to the 1/4 mile sprint or fancy looking around the Cold War air display at Bruntingthorpe I wouldn't bother. A large number of high profile VAG scene retailers now don't bother turning up as the show is so bad. If you want Pick'n'Mix, cheap tat off a market stall or a raffle for a stuffed toy then you'll be in your element. If you want a serious car show I'd look elsewhere.

    This is my slightly embittered experience based upon 12 years attendance at Inters where I saw it outgrow the Crowthorne site and then enter a downward spiral into several years of mediocrity resulting in the poor show we had in 2007 & 2008. I was talked into going last year despite saying never again after 2007 and I ended up leaving just after 11am after just over 2 hours in the show.

    There are better offers out there...

    True...

    But the other shows are populated by stupidly low cars on air-bags, silly wide, overly large wheels and stretched tyres and sporting leather covered engine bays.
    If that's your bag...try other shows.

    If however, you can ignore the pretty poor stalls and want to see some serious stuff play on the 1/4 mile...then it's a good show....just not as good as it was at Crowthorne, as Jason says.

    I went to Inters for the first time last year and granted it wasnt the most amazing car show i have been to however, like Ess Three said its a serious car show for people who are actually interested in the cars for what they are.
    Maybe a little bit of tweeking but no chavy wallys with cars whos exhausts touch the floor and speekers that can rip your ear drums out! Its more for the "technicaly" minded people. Although you will get a few "chavs" its not over run by them.

    At the end of the day its what you make it and if someone finnaly sorts out organising it properly ie actually telling us they are doing it, it should be a good crowd and we can camp drink beer and have a laff because after allisnt that what life is about?? :D

    It's not too far away for me to give it a miss, and always nice to catch up with a few old friends also, I will most probably be there on Sunday unless something comes up on the day.
    And if Voorhees is reading, I want a rematch dude!

    Us northern types have a 9 hour, 400 mile+ drive...so I'm sure you can put the effort it!

    and always nice to catch up with a few old friends also,
    Sure is...
    It's traditional.
    See you there...

    As far as I know, he's made contact and applied for Club Parking.
    If like last year, then all we do if select A-S.net from a menu when ordering tickets once it's registered.

    I'm obviously getting old as one of the ways that Inters has gone down hill in my eyes is that there are cars scraping on the ground with leather engine covers and stretched tyres.

    I also think that there are far more tyre kicking chavs than there ever used to be in the past. I'm sure that's why a lot of the big tuners/accessory suppliers don't bother going anymore. Autometrix charge a lot for a plot and it just isn't worth them going as it's the wrong audience.

    I think something like AudiDriver (Autometrix) or the Audis in the Park event organised by Cal off the forum offer better prospects.

    Sadly, this is true...
    Just not EVERY car as in some shows.

    I don't care for the Show side...so tend to bypass it on the way to the sprint...but every now and then you see a a real star - like a bog standard Mk1 GTi which will make me smile.
    I walk past the Chav-chariots at pace though.

    It's not what it was 10 years ago...for sure.
    But, still worth the visit for the craic/Sprint.
