    I know VAG owners are there with a stand.

    I'm not joining them this year. Having been to several of them I got sick of the terrible driving standards on track so prefer to invest my cash in a proper track day. The 'pay £30 to drive your car on track' is a nice idea but you get too many people who think they are Vettel when they don't know their a**e from their elbow. It's a shame as I think Combe is my favourite track.

    Fingers crossed it's a nice day for you.

    Couldnt agree more with Jason, Combe action days are a great way to venture out on track for the first time to see if it's for you, but in terms of a proper track day, it's a complete shambles!

    I'd still be there if I could though :( but I'm working, and even if i wasn't, when an open pitlane day is usually around £120 for 8 hours on track, I couldn't justify paying £120 for just 4 15 minute sessions that are over crowded, badly marshalled, and full of nutters with no track etiquette!

    Will definitely be at ADI though, because I like you lot :p

    For spectators:
    Damp track + first session + Quarry corner = fun

    For drivers:
    Damp track + first session + Quarry corner = carnage

    Yeah i will be attending, with my new s3! Will not be going out on the track tho, i need more time to get used to 345bhp, probably not the best event to learn at.

    Ill keep an eye out for some of you foke.

    Perhaps not a COmbe action day, but taking it out on track is the best way to learn a new car I reckon!

    So, I went along, and didn't see any of you lot apart from Oke Phil in his gorgeous MTM S3!

    Really good day out, I only did one session near the end of the day as I didn't fancy risking the car on a super wet track.

    Were you still around when I went out mark? Shame I didn't bump into you! Be great if anyone got any pics :)

    Top day out in the end, Stupid busy though, I'd be furious if I had more than a few sessions booked as we were queing for an hour for our session! 3:15 session paid for and we hit the track at 4!

    I was hoping for more crashes especially as they were allowing almost 35 cars per session out. It was quite scary watching the different driving talents alongside oneanother.

    Sorry Nick, missed you mate was cold and tired,i should have forwarded you my number so i knew when you were going out.
