    A day in the sun talking to like-minded people about Audis whilst eating too many burgers & sausages without the kids nicking it; what do you think?

    BRILLIANT!

    I know you must have put in a lot of hard work to pull it off so WELL DONE mate. Really hope you're up for it again in 2011 but I expect it's the last thing on your mind right now. But if you are then I'll offer you any help I can.

    As above, a great day and thanks to all who organised it and to all those who turned up and showed off some very nice Audis.

    Only 3 complaints

    1. There were more evil speedbumps that i anticipated (about 6 in total)
    2. I've got sunburn
    3. I had a hangover most of the show

    Apart from that, an awesome day :laugh:

    Really enjoyed myself, can't wait for next year!

    lol...i can't answer No 2 or No 3 but will answer the speed bump one.

    I was PROMISED by the event co-ordinator of the park that ALL show traffic would be allowed access through a different smooth route.

    I heard a few people say that security had closed the smooth route off and were sending people around and over the speedbumps!

    When i went and asked nicely about re-opening the smooth route, i was told "No, there are far too many cars. they will have to go round the normal way"

    "FFS its a car show!" was my reply!

    I myself run an EXTREMELY low car and feel your pain!

    I can only apologise for what was obviously a mix up with gate staff but hope it didnt spoil anyones day!

    Many thank's to Calvin and Mark, Stacey,Rob,Helen (sorry if i missed anyone out) for a fantastic AITP 2010 and ASN club stand, last year's number's was good but this year's turn out was massive. Well done everyone. For me it was the best show this year . Audi's, food, Sunshine ( burnt leg's arm's and face).. A perfect day.

    Awesome day. Great cars, great people, really nice to meet some of you guys and see your lovely cars! And I have hopefully sold my car now because of AITP. :)

    The only thing I was a bit dissapointed with was the trade stalls. I was hoping there would be loads, and maybe a few spare parts lying around. But apart from that it was perfect. Apart from those dreaded speed humps!! :D

    Trade stalls is always a tricky one.......two traders didnt even bother to turn up, and they had paid there traders pitch fees!

    Being a new show, Traders really dont want to commit to something that may be a waste of time and money for them, so I understand that.

    Maybe if i decide to do an AITP 2011, traders will realise that its not everyday over 400 Audis are in one place on one day!

    All said and done, thanks for the comments.

    Unfortunately, I am learning by my mistakes. It was only my 2nd show so I suppose I still have a lot more learning to do. lol

    You've got to do an AITP 2011!! No doubts about it.

    And hopefully the trade stalls will be bigger and better next year. Maybe try Parts Depot, I think they would go down very well there.

    mate what an absolutely spot on day......

    I really enjoyed it even if i was spaced out with other commitments for the day (joys of taking the misus and friends) :)

    Will definately be coming to next years, hopefully you'll get more trade interest as i think the sheer amount of cars there, warrants it entirely...... the only shame is that you havent got anywhere to do any runs to open it up to a little to those not wanting to just show their cars..... to think you single handedly set all that up is amazing, spot on fella and roll on many years to come

    Had a great day thanks to the organizers, it was also nice to see families enjoying themselves in such an old fashion theme park, the train that goes around the lake, the mono rail that you have to pedal, the water shoot was built in 1926 it looked like a wooden skip hurtling down the ramp with a big long rope attached to haul it back up, classic stuff. Thanks again enjoyed the whole event.

Met some friends i'd wanted to meet for ages, met some new friends, saw some cars I couldnt stop drooling over and was able to show my efforts off! Great weather and like Jord, got loads of sun burn lol! Mark and Stacey did a great job and Staz was a top guy, a huge thanks to you matey!

    it was a great afternoon out, well afternoon for me as i had a lay in, what happened to the "Everyday User" option for the competition? the winner only brings it out for shows!

    but all in all, a great turn out by all, hooked up with a few of the top audi sport members, you know who you are you spoke to me, lol

    looking forward to AITP 2011,

    I was talking to Mike and Ashley about this...a car is not a car if you keep it in the garage for 51/52 weeks of the year. A car is designed to be used everyday, and people who are able to keep it spotless and modded to fook whilst still using it everyday deserve more credit i think

    The Yellow TT owner drove down from Huddersfield (I think) that morning and cleaned the car when he got there.

    I have seen the owner at numerous events and he ALWAYS drives it there.

    Hats off to the guy!....and the voting system is probably the fairest around

    there were a couple of cars in the show and shine that i did wonder 'what the hell' ...although i must admit it should be encouraged to get more along - maybe access to a tap so all these people can wash their cars upon arrival.....it smelt of death with all the flies!! :)

    That TT was lovely though....and the yellow S3, what a colour!!

    You think about that while I note some things down bud...

    1) I've got your works' phone number.
    2) I've got access to approximately ~40,000 email addresses.
    3) I'm not beyond asking 40,000 people to call you at work to pester the sh*t out of you to do it.

    4a) I know someone with a horse.
    4b) I know someone with a chainsaw.

    Anyway, on to feedback... Well, there's not much to be said which hasn't been already, but AITP cemented its place as the finest event in the Audi calendar. Great cars, great surroundings (and facilities), nice folk, and a relaxed atmosphere mean that it was only ever going to be another brilliant day out. The weather wasn't too shabby either (fashion fans will be excited to learn that there's a high probability of my panama returning to NEXT YEAR'S EVENT (Calvin!) thanks to my head being not far off Misano red at the moment!). Thanks to all those involved in putting the show on, those involved in organising our monopolising the majority of the field, and indeed those who parked such a nice selection of Audis with us.

    All the best,

    Rob.

    Calvin,

    I just want to reiterate the comments below. Once again a brilliant show even better than last year. I even survived the camping with the missus!
    I would also like to extend my thanks to Stacie, Mark and everyone else involved in an excellent day and a brilliant stand enabling us to win the best stand for the second year running. The other clubs must think it is a fix!

    Bring on AITP 2011.

    Cheers,

    Sheridan
