    Even if its used as a venue rather than it being obligatory to run on the strip, i recon it would be a good idea

    GTI festival is usually attended by a fair few people, but it's not been "full" by any standards in the last few years...mostly due to adverse weather. If the weather is good you will get a good set of runs in, more if you arrive early or wait till late in the day.

    The only prob is that racing stops if it rains and then you have to wait for the track to be dryed out (via a cool jet powered thing).

    when the cars at 5500 revs your waiting for it to bang! and your hearts a pounding!
    is a good experiance but bear in mind ballcrusher was a regular at the pod (the same ballcrusher with a knackered gearbox) :eyebrows:

    4000 rpm and dump on the green, you gotta love quattro !! At least thats how i launch the A3, seems to be a nice compomise between stripping the gearbox/clutch and geting away quickly and cleanly

    What time are most people thinking of turning up? Not been to Santa Pod before so not sure what the traffic will be like.

    I'd like to come just to see your cars on the strip...don't suppose there's a chance of being with the club stand though? Too late am I?
