    I have been chatting to Ajec Racing in Gloucester about organising a Rolling Road Day and I have some details now so looks like its on!!!

    I haven't finalised a date yet as I want to get a feel for numbers as it would be a good chance for ASN members to get together even if they aren't looking to get on the dyno.

    The dyno they use is a Dyno Dynamics said to be one of the most consistent dynos out there. Its capable of 4WD as well as 2WD.

    They can handle around 20 cars on the day and it will be £35 a run including a printout.

    I have posted a poll of dates and will make a list of people who wanna be there for a dyno run or just come along for the crack.

    Info about the Ajec dyno can be found here: http://www.ajecracing.co.uk/racing/road.php

    Google maps link to the general area: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=GL2...r=Gloucester GL2 9QL, United Kingdom&t=h&z=16


    PM me your interest (user name, car, dyno/there for the crack) so I can keep the thread clean and relevant.

    I would be interested, if you can confirm it's a 4WD run for my S3, either day suits me. :)

    I'd be up for this, either day is OK but my vote went to 28th Nov. Wish it was a bit closer for me though (Nottingham!). Any suggestions of a decent rolling road nearer to me? Could gauge interest in a Midlands session.

    7. jonny87 - S3 - Dyno Run

    I would imagine its from 9.00am till done...

    Will confirm the times but dyno runs will be done in order of arrival...

    There is a Maccy D's fairly close for breakfast/lunch and I'll bring my camera along for pics of the day.

    Obviously you don't have to be there dead on 9.00am... for the more local members (myself included) it will be no probs to get there for 9.00am but for members a little further away then a later should be ok.

    It will be around 20 members at prob 3 to 4 cars an hour?
