    30 minutes after buying it?! OUCH! Hope you had insurance!! Glad the both of you are OK though, which is the main thing.

    And is it the reflection of blue lights from the rozzers I see in the bumper?

    A silly question, but do we buy tickets per person, or per car?

    I've never been to one these events before.

    Btw, love the 993 Dave.

    Tickets per person, per day.
    Or a slightly cheaper weekend pair, but again, per person.
    The club parking is just a no-cost option if you want to park with the rest of us.

    Got a phone call today - they are happy to let my Speedster on the stand.
    So if it is going to be a nice day I'll pop along in that...

    Mark - Glad you guys got out of the car ok!!!

    Jason - Good stuff, cant wait to see the car....just on a side note, when we went to Cancun for our honeymoon a few years ago, in the hotel reception they had a Speedster split in half front to back and they were using it as a desk!!!

    We were gonna bring the A4 and the A3 to GTi for the weekend.
    The A3 was recovered to a secure yard by the police recovery company, didnt get to see whether it would drive they stuck it straight on a lorry using a crane. NS all panels marked, bonnet, bumper, and a dent in the A pillar, not sure if stress related or just a dent. Now have to wait and see whats said by the assessor geezer:sadlike::sadlike:

    Look those ugly light protectors that i hated so much worked!

    Thanks everyone for your concern I actually hurt myself more trying to get out by trapping my leg in the bloody door!

    Mark was right I need to learn to drive. If im honest im a bit embarrassed and really annoyed with myself :banghead:

    Although I only drove it for about half hour :sign_omg: I want another one! What an amazing car im well and truly converted :kissmyrings:

    Well anyway lets hope they can fix her.

    Edited by MB... You dont want to put comments like that :)

    The stand space is still available as long as you pre book your tickets and choose to have your car on the audi-sport stand...you will have to be quick tho as i believe tomorrow noon is the last day to pre book online.

    Yeah we will be there in the 1.8t converted A4, so a pair of passes to be used there, we have the pair (Sat/Sun) left that were supposed to be for the A3 for the weekend. I will take them in case anyone forgets theirs or anything

    I don't know...there'll be big queues anyway, so we'll aim to be parked up 15 mins or so before the official start time.

    Written on the official show site is this:

    "The event formally opens to the public at 9 am, although the main Bruntingthorpe site gates will be open from 7.30 am
    to avoid queueing on the public road. Only traders and special pass holders will be able to gain access to the GTI International
    site before 9 am"


    So whether our club pass is included in the " special pass holders" I don't know!
    Anyone?

    Got my tickets in the post today:thumbsup:but no club parking passes:ermm:.

    Does that mean they have run out of space? Any chance of club parking the ticket Byzan ?? I'll PM you my address and re-imburse you the postage plus a drink at Inters....soft drink it will have to be!.

    If not can they supply tickets for parking with forum members on the door?

    Cheers All
