    Going to wait until next year now to do this as I should be going to bestival in September now. This thread has got me wanting to go out there now though (hopefully with some ASN members) and waiting till next year means I can have the car sorted before going, just hope the ring will still be open next year. Hopefully see some of you at GTI International though.

    shame you can't make it matey.

    Who is actually going?

    so far, we've got:

    Westle
    Prawn
    Robbob

    all booked up at the Burgstube so far.

    Who else is up for it?

    the trip will go ahead regardless of numbers, we only had 3 cars a few weeks ago, and had a brilliant trip.

    it would be nice to meet a efw more of you folks though!

    Been really bored today so decided to design a window sticker for this trip. This was based on a design that I did in 2008 when I did a big trip. What do you guys think?:

    I dont think I'll be going this time round.

    But who here has heard of the Modball Rally? It looks great! Everyone should check it out, 8 days of driving, 3000 miles, hotels and crossings paid for, and all for £995 per person based on 2 in a car.

    Dammit. I'm going to have to miss this as well now. I now have the delights of going to a wedding that weekend instead. I guess I'm doomed to go on any car trips this year :(

    Have a great time chaps.

    A lot of my mates talk the talk but dont walk the walk. The guy who sits next to me has been talking about coming in his SL(ghey)K for the last 3 years but always comes up with an excuse when the trip comes round. Another one of my mates has pulled out due to being a pansy.

    Same here mate, everyone wants to come, but nobody will commit, then often, those that do commit and say they're comming find a reason to back out in the last few weeks and waste the ferry ticket!

    exactly!

    How many beds do you have spare to Fill? Me and Rob have two rooms booked and deposits paid, you have 6 beds in total don't you? I'm guessing that's you and a pax, plus Plunky and his pax, and 2 spares? I've still not yet heard from Dan (audi1.8tdan) so if there are two spare beds I'll give him a shout

    Yeah 2 beds left out of my 6. I was holding the last 2 for mates but nobody is committing. At the moment I don't even have a passenger, my mate is taking his A5 and he doesn't have a passenger either!

    oh nice, so the two remaining beds you do have are for your passengers?

    best not try and fill them then, I'm SURE you'll get a pax.

    Could always open the pax spot up to forum memebers too if you get stuck!

    That's the plan mate. I've sent out another chase on the events wall on bookface and if none of my mates are interested i'll have another 2 beds to go to forum members.

    I managed to get an S3 on GT5 and tuned it up the same as mine will be when we go in september. Been doing 8:30ish laps which I wont get anywhere near in the real world!

    The car doesn't handle like my real S3 either and it doesn't change into 6th gear till 135mph WTF! Anyway it's good practice just to familiarise myself with the track.

    Was it the Laguna Seca race course with the famous corkscrew bend. It's insane.

    What's wrong with that? The redline in 4th gear in my 5 spd A3 is about 125-130mph, and that's 5 speed.

    Surely the S3 will pass 120 in 5th easily? Bobs Leon can reach 130 in 5th I'm sure before needing 6th

    S3 will do 120+in 5th gear, Seat LCR's are longer geared than S3, they can hit 60 in 2nd.
