    Details here will be posted here, but it looks like you still can't prebook stuff:
    http://www.gtiinternational.co.uk/

    In summary, to get on the stand, you must pre-book a ticket and select the club name from the list when you buy your ticket as they will also send you a club pass. This will make sure you can get to the right area of the show. Without one the marshalls will just send you to the public car parks. It is free to have a club stand and free to display - you just need to pay your entry ticket.

    Hope that answers your questions. Neil Birkett works for the organisers and normally posts something up when we can book. Although it does seem a bit unusual that we can't book yet?

    I have now had confirmation I'll be allowed to park in the Audi-Sport.net parking area in my not-technically-VAG vehicle...and I'm OK for the sprint too.
    Good news.

    I will even consider washing the car...but am tempted to think that 400+ miles of flies, dirt and brake dust will be an uber cool look for this summer, especially combined with worn out tyres and blued brake discs.
    Yee-haa...

    When did the license showing start?
    2 years ago you didn't...you just bought runs at the office...job done.
    I've never shown my license in all the years I've been going, so is it a new thing?

    Can you book on the website yet? I'm surprised you can't. Autometrix are usually eager for your money. Just wondering if the wheels are finally going to fall off this year....

    Interesting to note on the website that 2007 was an 'an all-time record attendance' funny how everyone who was there thought it was quiet compared to previous years.

    Right chaps...
    You can now book online:
    http://www.gtiinternational.co.uk/

    The usual...£14.00 per day pre-booked (£17.00 at the gate) or £25.00 for a weekend pass.
    Audi-sport.net is already listed under the 'Clubs' so select it from the dropdown, pay your money...and the job's a good 'un.

    Sprint runs pre-bookable too...

    Is any one having problems booking online, it keeps saying "EXPIRY DATE INVALID" when I try and use my card or any card I have?

    Can you book by phone?
