    Drag strip only... Gets a bit boring after a while but watching the 3 second 0-60 cars is a good laugh.

    Yeah, GTI International's strip can be hard to see the action sometimes. Santa pod is obviously better for viewing.

    But still, fun to see the more powerfull entries.

    We've stopped doing samco hoses as we dont make ANY profit on them. Looking into a different supplier for silicone products (not Samco)

    No..its just a huge car park...aka runway. The strip is on a taxiway and the show area is by the hangers.

    I live very close to the event so I'll attend, probably just Saturday. It would be good to meet you guys also.

    I've been to GTI Int. once in 2003. It was good but I would like to see more Audi trade stands selling Audi parts/gear.

    Like Rich said, the stand is a large car park. There's a runway for drag strip racing. It does get crowded because people have to gather around the fences to see the action.

    @Dicky, agree, spent about two hours last year walking around the car park looking at brakes, cats on S3s.
    Going up on Sunday if you fancy tagging along.

    Cheers for the invite Chris, but I'm actually travelling up on Friday afternoon (me, misses, brother-in law and his misses and a mate with a R32) and staying over Fri and Sat night, returning on Sunday.

    I will only be going to the show on Sat though.

    Should be a good weekend! I've been for the past 6 years (I prefer TRL personally but the new location isn't too bad except for the distance!)

    So if anyone spots a Ming Blue S3 being tailgated by a Blue R32 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif then give us a wave! You should be able to work out if its me by my number plate (oh and the handsome driver /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif)

    Should be leaving about 3ish so not sure what time I will get there! Not even sure of the way to be honest with you as I will be relying on tomtom to get me there!

    I will have one of those old fasioned paper map things in the boot for backup mind you! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    If I spot you I'll tell my mate with the R32 to give you a race! I'll tell him your a bog standard 1.8T and i'l try and drive in a straight line as I'm laughing my head off with you disappearing in the distance!
