    What level of interest is there in going to GTI International?

    I see from some other posts that there is a little mixed reviews. I'm sure that Neil and the team at Autometrix will be trying to improve things.

    We have to have our registration back by 31st of March.

    You just need to be a member on here to be on the stand, we say stand, but it's more like a patch for Audi-sport members, just register your interest with Rich, and he should send you out a pass nearer the date Nilz, and if you can get up early enough, we can go together on the sunday. ;)

    You book your ticket through GTI international and there will be a drop down menu where you click on audi-sport.

    in the post you will receive your ticket and display pass, get up early and once your there you park on the grass, bring some wellies with you, weather was shite last yr

    The above should answer your questions.

    I will get the AS.Net banner so we can show who we are. I've got everything crossed for a HOT sunny day!

    We had a good pitch last year - right next to the tyre testing and the VW/Seat stands. Unfortunately it was on the grass rather than the hard standing so it did get a bit soggy!

    What, so I can't come along in my Bugatti Veyron?

    Also they should probably allow Porsche's in as well now they are wearing the company trousers! Interesting what will happen with the Porsche/Bentley/Lamborghini/Bugatti question? Too many sports cars if you ask me.

    Rich, put me down for the Sunday, i think that date should be ok....

    Rick, you going Saturday or Sunday??

    Also do you have to get your tix in advance or can you get them on the day, if you do, then do you get a pass as well or will you only get this with advance bookings??

    You MUST pre-book to get a place on the stand. Should be fairly self explanatory on the form.

    They sure did...but the bloke was not happy.
    Told me it was for VAG only...
    I pointed out the fact that Porsche had just bought a chunk of VAG, and that he'd let a Clio with a 1.8T go down earlier...and he backed down.

    Told me I'd not be allowed on again.

    Maybe no bad thing since I got my arse kicked by Cainey in his TT straight after!

    FYI - You book your place on the stand when you book your tickets. I do not actually need to know. Autometrix will give me details of attendees before the show and i will post it up.
