    Today we headed down to Castle Combe to the Forge Action Day, an annual event that Forge have been holding for the last couple of years.

    After cutting through the dense fog on the M4 by Swindon the sky soon broke and glorious sunshine bathed the track for the rest of the day.

    The Action Day is a multi-brand event and there are a broad spectrum of cars on show from a range of disciplines (track / drift / scene ). It's the first time I've been to an 'open' show, so there were less familiar faces than the usual VAG scene shows, but it was interesting to have a poke around some different metal. A real range in quality, and it makes you appreciate how high the standard is in the VAG stable, but then many of the cars on show today were time attack or proper track workhorses. There are also manufacturer stands, obviously Forge, but then Eibach, Scorpion, Revo, Lichfield, Pipercross, Powerflex.....

    I took a few photos whilst I was wandering about, so I thought I'd share them.

    1) Audi's at the show

    Balls, shame I didn't see you. My arm was playing up so we had to leave early (broke it mountain biking 2 weeks ago) and I was struggling to carry camera bag! Hence why I got the run on you!
