    Sorry to be a post whore but just got a quote for trackday insurance: To cover the whole cost of replacing the car would be £131 with an excess of £1400! Up to 7 grand would be 70 quid. Think i will just take it fairly easy. See you tomorrow!

    Can someone post up the final list with meet details and if any one needs anything brought?

    I will bring Laptop with VagCom (don't know how to use it yet) and Etos parts list. We should have brought a Barbie now that would have been cool.

    Washing cars in the dark is great fun! Hope the rain stops for you Rich...

    I've just given mine a quick wash as it hadn't been cleaned for 2 weeks. At least it will look presentable until I can clean it properly up there...

    See you all tomorrow!

    Why not clean it at 4AM? LOL

    My neighbours think I am mad anyway. Due to the amount of time and money I spend on my car.

    I don't suppose it helps that I have been out at 1AM in the morning in the past with a 100W flood light finishing off work, before I go to work at 6AM /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    It has been raining heavy down my way all day (no let up) so didn't get the chance to dry it off.

    Hopefully the wax I put on her 2 weeks ago is still working well..

    Just got back - good day and realy good to meet a few of the guys. Had fun round the track and managed to hit 120MHP round the front straight (scary putting that much trust in the brakes).

    Will try and attend more events next year as a result.

    Cheers,

    What an excellent day out! Glad to see some old faces and to meet some new ones /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    Everything went pretty much according to plan from the moment I woke up, many thanks to Markb for leading us to the meeting point, we took the scenic route, and it was damn quick! Forget Satnav and Tomtom, we now have Marknav, hes got a 14" screen in his car! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif , the return trip was a good viewing aswell /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    RESPECT! has to go to the man JPO(Ian), who took on the track lap after lap, nothing could hold him back!, not even cooked brakes with a warning on the dash, worn tyres and low brake fluid!!... the man's on a mission... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif
    Didn't head to the tracks myself, but lots of awesome machines on show, and some very rapid machines on the tracks aswell. Did join in on the parade lap with Sluggy and Markb in the end though, for 3 laps of the circuit for a laff, to get a feel for next time? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    Only downer of the day was some prat driving an Audi UK supplied new shape S4 into a parked up TT, after completing a timed lap of the slalom course, then legging it out of the circuit, but he was caught in the end! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Slug meister will hopefully post up a few pics taken throughout the day, including the damaged TT.

    See you guys there next year(That's if I still have an Audi /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif )

    Yeah, managed to hit 150(kph) on the way back as it was clear for a little stretch, then drove like a grandad for the rest of the way /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    Where abouts on the M42 bud? no active cameras AFAIK, unless the overhead signs have a speed displayed
