    I ran my golf at inters a few years ago when it was at bentwaters in Suffolk, best i could manage was a 15.100 wheres at the pod a few weeks earlier i couldn't get under 16.200, I found inters timing gear to be a bit suspect, how could it be that far out?!

    Anyway whoever is arranging this then I'll hang fire for a bit and see what happens.

    How many runs did you have last year? Don't really trust my transmission to be honest, which is why I only did one run last year lol, don't mind losing neither, it's all about taking part......... ya ba5tard! :)

    Joe,the reason you only did one run was that your car was bogging down.

    What about my transmission? its done about 20 runs and one trackday and driven badly daily and also the original clutch 80k!!!

    we can make it even by me leaving the ESP on if you want ;)

    You haven't had the misfortune of your gearbox letting go @50mph on the M42 when it was slightly damp in medium traffic lol. My gearbox isn't the original one, and the bogging down was probably due to the clutch being new'ish, think it had done 500 odd motorway miles only prior to my run, so I was hitting the limiter in 1st gear with the car hardly moving lol, I could smell the damn thing after my run. It's all bedded in now though. :)

    Ok guys, i am not meaning to tread on any ones toes, but i sent a cursory email to Autometrix to check we were going to be added to the drop down list. Sally has confirmed it will be done later today.

    Hope that helps

    Mark, you run with it if you are happy to do so.
    I was hoping Rich would have spotted this and posted updates...but in his absense, I suggest that if you are happy to do so, you go ahead and make any plans you see fit. :beerchug:

    Glen, i have PM'd Rich.
    I was thinking of giving him a few weeks to respond, and then if nothing jump in and sort it etc.

    The main thing is we are now on the list so it means we can start pre ordering etc.

    I have given my contact details to Autometrix as a standby in case Rich doesnt return the form etc etc That way we can crack on.

    So....

    Who's up for it?

    I thought i should make an appearance!

    Sorry for missing this and not posting, but i've already sent all the applications off to Autometrix.

    I unfortunately do not actually have the banner - I think DickyS3 has it, so i will PM him and see if i can get hold of it.

    Does anyone know if Custom Code will be doing 'on site' remaps on the day. Will be my first time at the show and I was wondering if they'll be giving any discounts? Thanks

    I live near and it's warm, fairly cloudy but bright so all in all not too bad.

    The forecast said that the east midlands should expect the best of the weather this weekend which is promising.
