    Prawns car was epic around the handling course!! I got a passenger ride in it on the last run of the day, holy **** that thing handles, and he's not a bad driver either.. But don't tell him.

    Westy the exit point of the Leon was where we where all stood in front of the caddy van at the auto jumble area before we left. Luck.... I think so!!!
    Anyways what a great weekend. Seeing the lads again was awesome and had a great time even if most of the night was beer int the left hand, umbrella in the right lol
    Westy & Stacey did well on the strip which was good to see the 8l's represent ;)
    some amazing motors there ovet the weekend, was well worth the 350 mile commute.

I met Stacey, Jay, Scott, Reesy, Papa Reese lol, Paul doc, at the camp site and what a great bunch of lads they are made me feel really welcome, we had such a great fun 2 nights rain and shine it was cracking, Thanks guys. Also met Aaron, Tuffty, Dave, Prawny, Aragorn and Bill who I had a good old chat with, great blokes.

    Good to hear you enjoyed it Chris! The weird discussions we had will be remembered. Always good to meet new people. You got some really good shots of the camping antics. Bring on the next one

    Got to admit that I thought under 14secs was not possible with a K04(hybrids not included), but happy to be proved wrong mate!

    Steady on there Fred, I wasn't quite THAT bad! Close though :)

    14.21s quarter and 6.02 0-60 - not impressed with the times, and I'm sure the car is capable of more, but drag racing just isn't for me! No corners :(

    I'd like to think I pulled at least some credit back on the handling course though :) I SERIOUSLY enjoyed that and felt much more at home!

    Really good show all in all, one of the best I've ever been to, met loads of great people, put faces to names I've known for years!

    Great to see everyone on the ASN stand, and a MASSIVE thanks to Aaron for all his work on the COV stand! Never felt so welcome in my life! Free food, BBQ, beers, COV number plates for every COV member. Absolutely outstanding :)

    Thanks jojo. People have to remember that I have a brand new K04 and a lot of extra hardware attached. This isn't just a bog standard stage 2 car ;)

    Just wait till its on larger injectors and has been custom mapped, it can only get faster :racer:

    Reesy, who was the guy filming when I did the handling course at the end? I'm sure he said his name was Paul, and I met him at ADI as well. It'd be cool to try and get that footage if possible!

    The fella I walked off with? With the greying hair that I look a lot like? That'd be my old man! His name is Paul, and I didn't realise that he had filmed it. I'll get the footage off him tonight mate.

    Thanks bud. You should have come over to the (poorly advertised) ASN stand and said hello. I saw your car parked up but didn't see you anywhere. What times did you run?

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, the lads said it was, but I hadn't realised! that makes sense!

    Bigman said that Paul filmed it when I took you out for a blast, if you could get the footage that'd be awesome dude :) thanks very much!

    Mate I've been in your car I know that it's totaly not built for the strip, wat I else I do know is that it will Nail any s3 round any track all day long
    me and don were both saying" I wish I could do that in my car" after a two minute drive with the prawnstar,
    good work on the handling course very impressive, wish I could have been there to see it, was just too busy on the stand!

    Thanx for your kind words prawn I'm glad you enjoyed your day and you and all the ASN lads are allways welcome

    I was busy walking around and watching the sprints :) ......plus when i had a glance over you guys seemed like you were all having a good time with Chez, Karl was getting very intimate

    The fastest i got was 0-60 in 6.42secs (1st run) and 14.427 for the 1/4mile but i've never done a 1/4mile before and it's the first time i've launched. I was hoping to go all out on the 3rd and 4th run but the accident on the strip meant i couldn't have another go :(

    thanx to all the ASN lads that came and said hello and had a couple of beers with us!
    shame we were separated on the campsite! I hope it's dry next year so we can all be in the large grass area together instead this years layout

    Thanx to chez who is now keeping my lil mum company lol


    Hope to see you all again @ AITP

    Well done to all that helped to put the ASN stand together it was a really good turnout every body new you were there with your awesome cars

    I've just been kindly messaged a video of a run with another s3 which i think was day dreaming at this moment in time lol :whistle2:


    Audi s3's gti inters - YouTube

    Heres a pic of my run times but really struggled to improve on my first launch and think i either need to practice more or just grow some bigger balls with the amount of revs i launch at :)

    I was thinking on saturday, how good it would have been if ASN and COV had pitches next to each over.

    May be we could have a chat to AITP Man see what we can get sorted out. :)

    Yep that was me with the blue wheels. Even took it up the strip against Danes RS4 which was a chuckle. Then took on Jojo but was to busy watching Tropic Thunder to notice the lights and bogged. Plans for next year are Clutch so i can launch a bit harder!

    Thats exactly mine and dons concept
    were dying to bring clubs together
    this year @ inters proved to me that it's possible and slowly working
    i have friends in ASN,SSS,TOTAL VAG,SOUTH MEETS and now CLUB VAG, I didn't have this before COV

    I would love for all us to be working together and changing things
    I wanna get a clubstand @ a couple of the European shows next year and reeling some of them guys in too
