    Ive just heard that Iains minted superharged RS4 is no longer coming.............thats a shame coz it would of been a real head turner. We have enough to do a good display so no probs.

    I thought the majority of the cars were pitching up on the Sunday morning....we have an additional helper too.....The Dude is coming......My son Elliot is staying for a wee while over the school hols so hes coming over with me.....Auntie Sandra can keep him entertained....lol

    Sorry to disappoint anyone with my no-show as I hate letting folk down but I did post up on another of the many threads about this meeting on the 7th April that I wasn't willing to go to the SECC. I just couldn't face standing about in a big shed all day with the sun blazing down all day!

    I think I saw a couple of things on facebook last night about the show that folk should be aware of......

    Think the details Martay is gathering need to be submitted by July 12th? So bear that in mind if he asks you for anything.

    With regards to the show, I was sure I read a post on their facebook, but I cant find it any more - basically it outlined a few things to note on the day.

    A couple of them from memory:

    All cars will need a drip tray under them - kitchen foil ones will do apparently.

    And also, you must have less than a 1/4 tank of fuel in your car on the day. Not sure of the logic behind that one in honesty and a bit of a pain considering I just stuck £90 of diesel in mine.....!

    The insurance etc form needs to be in by the 14th. I was going to be PMing everyone to get the last of the info (mainly just missing contact number and car regs). I've not heard or seen anything about drip trays nor fuel levels, but I'll chase that up.

    Iain - good idea. There is a similar sheet for AITP and GTI Inters, so I'll see about getting one done for this too.

    Confirmed - drip trays and 1/4 tank of fuel max. We can basically use anything as a drip tray, the flooring is latex so will just get ruined by oil.

    David......if its too much to do then sling me the car for 2 days and I shall get her in mint condition beforehand. I have 4 cars in total to do so far so another one is not gonna make much difference.

    Thats very strange as alot of places like the car to be full so as the tank doesn't have a lot of vapour in it. 1/4 tank means alot of vapour.............oh well their rules I suppose so 1/4 tank it is then. The queue at the nearest petrol station is gonna be huge.

    Yup, sorry. Email from Sharon below:

    Some Show information for car exhibitors -

    1. Set Up day on Saturday open from 10am to 5pm

    2. Set up on Sunday 6am to 9am
    3. All cars inside must have less than 1/4 Tank of Fuel
    4. Drip trays needed for all indoor cars *please note foil trays or even bin bags are fine to be used as drip trays, you can purchase these from a supermarket.

    An e-mail will be coming out shortly with all this information and you will get it in your pack as well which will be sent out the week leading up to the show.


    Many thanks,

    Just incase anyone is needing to pressure wash there car before it gets into the secc there is a semi decent self wash at the BP petrol station on south street just along the road from the secc cost £1 for 2mins. It's good enough to blast the loose dirt and flys off before a quick detail for the show.

    I'd imagine a quick blast with a jet wash will be a good idea after the drive through. Hopefully its a nice / dry day so the cars arent in tooooo much of a state.

    Are folk still wanting to meet up before heading through? What kinda time are we thinking?

    Still dont get the 1/4 tank of fuel theory. I might well struggle to get down from a full tank to less than a quarter in two weeks.

    Ah a nice early rise on a sunday :gaehn: I'll probably fall asleep at some point during the day haha

    meeting up somewhere before hand would probably make it easier when we get to the secc.

    Nicky, if you and your friend can be there all day that'd be fantastic. John (RS3-KEL) has had to pull out, so we're again missing an RS3. Yours would be more than welcome on the stand.

    In other news, we've just lost an ROV which is going to make this 7-day job dangerously close to the show weekend. I'll let you all know what's going on with which hall and what the system is going to be for tickets as and when I hear.
