    Hi Phil
    Good to see that you have got your Xmas event sorted. Would be good for all the old faces to get together.

    I'm booked in. Anyone else from here going?

    This could be your last chance to drive Donington before the bulldozers move in!!!

    They're already in mate. The paddocks are down and the Melbourne loop is the temporary the pit lane. Donington Park have put up some marquees to accomodate the cars off-track.

    Don't see why not. You could always register for the day's events, and leave out the evening ones.

    The B7 RS4 Hot Laps will be assigned by priority, i.e. TrackDayHeroes / RS246 members, and people who are taking part in the track day/museum/dinner. Spaces are limited, and we want it to be fair.

    The priority is basically people who are taking part in the day and have been active on RS246/TDH. I have to say this as it wouldn't be fair to give a place to someone who just turned up to go out in the B7 RS4, over someone who is is an active contributor..... Hope this makes sense, and seems reasonable.

    There are a few tasty cars already booked for the event, and usually we are happy to accomodate willing ballast with helmets /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The driver for the B7 RS4 is one of the Audi Driving Experience drivers, and will be flown in especially for the event.

    Oh, and you don't need to register on RS246, as the forms are openly available on TrackDayHeroes, and simply require completing and emailing. I'll keep the list of registered attendees updated on both RS246 and TDH.

    That should be possible, but you'll have to register early for the Hot Laps and evening meal/hotel.

    The only 1.8T I've seen fail was "CliveD" but his exhaust at the time seems to be just a straight tube and it was with the big turbo kit!

    I may have a few vouchers spare for rides in the new RS4, but due to only being allowed 1 passenger in the car, places are tight.

    I did ask McLaren for a car yesterday, but they didn't have any spare /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
