    Just got back from Gti, very nice day although I didn't stick aroud for much, just like 2 hours, then had to rush back home, although I did manage a run on the strip against my bro, that was nice (first time). Wanted to ask something, could I come tomorrow and go on the stand or strip ? i.e. could I pay at the gates for the stand and pass?

    Was a good day, apart from the rain


    glad the sun came out for a few hours but my trainers were covered in mud.

    Really nice cars around, and really liked the Audi TT mk1 shape in Green which had a TDI conversion

    Will post all the pics up when i get them of my cousin

    Took my S3 down the strip, was sh!tting it for some reason (as it was my 1s time ), but loved every second of it, I was in a Zone, ignoring all the people and sound around me, was mad.

    Went head to head with voorhees, but he had a remapped one so he wooped my ass, (wait till i remap mine) :)

    Nice meeting Chris, Defratos and jason.

    Chris think i got some pics of your car somwhere on my cousins camera.

    Want to be there on sunday but cant make it :(

    Cant wait for the next show now but audi-sport does need more cars coming to the event.


    edit - forgot to mention i saw the sexy W12 :) and a sexy black R8 :hubbahubba:

    Unless it significantly dries out, it is not grass, it's a huge muddy mess.

    Thanks for the pics Jason. Good to meet you and the other guys today, even if it was only briefly.

    Was quite a good day. It rained (very heavily) at around 10am and this made everywhere a complete mud bath. Rain then stayed away most of the day until 4:30 and then the heavens opened again. God knows what kind of mess the place is going to be in in the morning.

    Likewise.

    Came past your stand a few times too, but nobody about.

    Was the Noggy blue S3 with black wheels on eof the Audi-Sport.net guys? Not sure if he is aware but puffing out plenty of blue smoke.

    I leave you with a shameless pic of my car and the stand I was on:

    I have a few pics of you on the strip - PM me an email address if you want them.

    No joke about the blue smoke - have a look and check if it's persisting.

    Have a few other S3s on the sprint that may be from here- if you think it could be you and you want the pics, PM me your reg and an email address.

    Hi all, nice to see familiar faces and meet new ones as usual, weather was pretty good!, I got some sunstroke too lol, face is all aching - ouch!

    So much for my shiny car, the marshland ruined it, and a thumbsdown for the foodstands location, so it was either starve or wreck your footwear for grub.

    Bluesmoke is your excuse Chris! - HA! :sadlike:

    we walked around for hours looking for the audi-sport.net stand asked someone on the club audi stand they didnt have a clue where the stand was. asked a few of the gti int reps eventually they pointed me in the right direction when i eventually found it there was only 2 cars there one s3 and a TT. shame it was around 3 ish i think. we must have walked past there about 4 times!!

    Well despite the weather saturday morning, it was a fun weekend as usual. The mud was vile, but other than than was good. Good to see people, old and new. Sunday was brilliant weather and great for the strip. Managed a 5.5s 0-60 but that was bogging in 1st, and a 13.89 1/4. Looking forward to next year!

    ps - Will upload some vids or races against ChriS3 and JamoS3.

    Well I'm going to rename GTI International as "GTI Eventfull" for me.

    Excellent day (Sunday) but didn't get home until 01:15 Monday morning. Not by choice!
    Fecking car broke down whilst on the M1 (bearing in mind I live near Brighton).
    Just lost all power.

    Anyways, cutting the long long story very short, I was given a loan car by th RAC and now mine is sitting at a recovery centre in Milton Keynes, hopefully being returned to be sometime today.

    Bugger!

    Oh well, guess I'll just have to get involved when it arrives (Kev rolls sleeves up ready).

    Took loads of pics tho. Check 'em out here --> http://homepage.ntlworld.com/kevin.yeoman/WebGalleries/GTI_Internation_2007/index.html
