    Graeme at GNJ Motorsport will have his new unit soon, he has said he's happy for the VXR lot to have meets there, maybe worth having words with him about the audi lot going over sometime.

    im sure he wouldn't have a problem.

    I will speak with Graeme and see if this is a possible venue. I believe that N8 is going to organise some meets at his unit as well. :)x

    I have sent Graeme a Pm to ask if this could happen. Will update when i get a reply from him. :) x

    so after spending the last couple of hours trying too find a good place for a nw meet ive come up with
    dobbies garden center in southport, i think it will be a great ice-breaker and a chance too put names too faces seeing as they already hold a meet there on the FIRST wednesday of every month run by uk hot cars which is not brand spcific so any cars welcome, i went too one last year and it was good loads of cars including a couple of audis, and also a burger van (bonus).
    I'm just gauging intrest at the moment too see who's up4 it, if enough people are up4 it then we can make the first one of feb which is on wednesday are own nw audi meet. it usually starts about 7:30pm which i thought was a great time giving people the chance too get home from work and get sorted. anyway ill start a list of names below too see whos up4 it then we can decide wether we make the feb one or start it in march let me know what you think lads.
    cheers Jay

    A537 (cat and fiddle road) is always a nice place to meet/drive. I think some time in the near future, for anyone who is relatively close and interested we should organise that! (On a sunny day) :yes:

    Very true, how ever I live at the bottom of it, in Macclesfield, which I would still consider NW :p. I think you're right though, Manchester is a more central location.

    Good luck getting your new car. I saw the thread about your last one! Sucks that it wasn't your fault yet nothing you can do about it!!

    The ASC's are a joke on that road. I mean, you can turn off just before you go through the last one and go a different (quicker) way... It makes no sense. I guess it just catches people out who don't really know the road. And the people that don't really know the road, shouldn't be speeding! It's not like it's easy to average 50 between the camera's anyway, unless you're really trying. lol
