    I will be attending this event on Saturday. I would ask to come and park next to you guys but as my RS4 has been scrapped and I am driving my brother's Boxter I don't think it would be appropriate!!!

    Would be good to meet up with you guys though.

    They ask that club members be in and parked by 08:30 but if you are late turning uo i doubt they are gonig to not let you in. Basically, the earlier the better but don't worry too much.

    Wow...looks like a much better turn out than last year, should be a wide selection of motors too! I was going to aim to get there for about 8 am, hopefully should be early enough to get parked up without to much of a wait?:thrashi:

    No I don't think I do, my partner in crime (Calvin) is going to be there for the whole weekend so there will be atleast one Audi from AudiMeets there. I will try and get up there early to avoid all the traffic.

    Rick they are called old skool dropouts, they are a Brum and Leicester lot, mainly veedubs....i think i know a few of the lads from there, but mainly the Brum lot....

    Cheers Rich, I will aim on getting there early, see my reasoning is I dont really see the point of waiting in a queue for such a long time, i would rather get up a bit later, have some decent Sunday morning brekkie and not have to queue, but roll straight in :)

    @ Rick - I will probably let you know Saturday, just me and the missus going, but will probably meet a few of the Brum lads in there......

    @ Mark - I believe we can go in earlier than the "peasants"...lol..

    @ Jo - If im leaving from Brum, I will more than likely meet up with you somwehere in Solihull if you want, if you dont hear from me then I will just see you at the show...coz i'll probably still be in bed...lol!!!

    @ Davidmann - Just make sure you get the persons name that you speak to as you dont want to turn up and pay for two sets of tickets then have them say well, "sorry whoever told you that didnt know what they were doing!!!"

    3 days to go.....woohoo!!!

    Yes i have the names.

    However I am really concerned about getting in the club stand. It "should be ok".

    However just in case does anyone have a spare stand pass I can have if all else fails?
    Can RichA3Turbo help?

    David, no pass = no stand. If you have a pass though it wont be a problem. Just speak to the attendants. Its too late for me to arrange anything specifically.

    GTI International 2008 - 21st & 22nd June

    I am delighted to tell you that the sale of advance tickets for GTI International is higher than last year, we have more traders and exhibitors, and we have more individuals selling autojumble.

    With the best part of 1,000 club members having booked in advance, it has been something of a nightmare to allocated suitably sized plots to each group, but we reckon that we have been able to devise a jigsaw pattern which will work! Virtually all the plots are on grass.

    We are hoping for good weather, but you never know. We tested the grassed surfaces on Tuesday and the ground beneath is as hard as concrete. Even if it does rain, we don’t think that there will be the problems which occurred last year.

    There are no more hard-surfaced area available within a reasonable distance of the centre of activities and, if it rains so heavily that the ground becomes too soft (we think that this is unlikely) we will not be able to allocate individual club plots on hard standing.

    We would suggest that, if there is consistent rain before the event, you try to arrange for all your members to arrive at the same time so that they can park together in the main car park. The car park marshals will not be able to leave sections of the car park free for particular clubs and this is the only way in which we feel you would be able to park together.

    Hopefully, none of this will be necessary and, unless we have torrential rain, you should all be able to park on the grass areas which have been allocated and marked out.

    Kind regards

    Looks like there could be nearly 30 cars on the stand this year. Lets hope we get a good spot.

    While I remember, every year someone mentions that they should have done an Audi-Sport headed mod list to put on their dash.

    You could bring the pass with you and explain to them that you have rang up and they said they would give you a refund for sat ticket, and to use the pass for sunday,

    best bet is to ring them up again and explain that you have the stand pass for sat but not sun

    Yes I have e-mailed them again also seeing if hey can pull some strings.
    It would be good for my orange s3 to be along the bunch. I did pre-order etc, just didn't realise that Sunday would be so much of a better day.

    Car went back into garage the middle of this week for alignment works. Very unlikely I'll get it back today so I have a PARKING PASS FOR SATURDAY - Anyone near CR5 postcode then PM me and feel free to pop up and collect this evening or b4 8.30 tomorrow.

    Courtesy car is a Pug 1.0 107 - fortunately my mate is bringing his Lotus !

    I'll come and find the stand and say hello !

    In all my best efforts with regards to getting up early.........in reality I know I won't, so I think I'll park with the "peasants", but utilising my clever parking tactics that gets me to the head of the crowd which hasn't failed me yet.
