    Welcome on board Piester :)

    This is going very well so far, so impressed with the ASN uptake, we have more people booked on than COV or SSS at the moment, well done chaps :)

    Now we just need some of the big turbo boys to come out to play!

    Tufty? Welly? Pat? Andrew? Mush?

    Perhaps we could even tempt Bill to bring the Ibiza out to play? (make us all look stupid!)

    My cars far from track ready, and besides I've got a lardass 8p v6 anyway. But what's the deal with spectators? I wouldn't mind coming along to meet a few people and spend a few quid on the stalls.

    Haha, there is a plus side to being able to use forums whilst I'm working!

    No need to worry about the Turbo Paradox, I might take my bog standard 1.6 S Golf round for a session, haha!

    Whatever it was, call the people involved, and tell them that Prawn just cancelled it.

    Simples!

    None of these boys have finished cars except Welly and he has plastic tyres and cheese brakes so you dont want him there :moa:

    Bill's probably still repairing the fire damage on his.

    I've technically got a running mapped big turbo'd car with chassis and brakes for track but think my turbo setup will be melting by the time I've done a couple of laps :(

    Lol it's a weekend long thing, so it's not quite that simple but I'll try and work some magic.

    The old golf handles so well it would be a shame not to! That is of course if I don't bin it at Prescott hill the week before ;)

    I went to the same thing last year, there was an Indy car that time that was pretty epic, just needed to be a bit more up to date to get my interest, hence why I'm going to this in August. Also the gf reckons she can get up the hill quicker in her old fiesta, that's not happening... Even if bill has to put a 1.8t in it, it's not happening lol.

    Anyhoo back on topic.... ;)

    You'll do fine Marty, trackdays aren't about racing other people, they're about having great fun, bettering yourself, and enjoying your cars full capabilities in a safe and legal environment :)

    This is it. Most tracks don't tolerate racing anyway, and if the marshalls think your driving dangerously you'll be warned.

    Go and have a great day, learn the limits of your car, and think of me sat at a 65 year olds birthday party :(

    Whaaaaaaaaaat, a sudden surge! No fair.

    Looks like an 8L run-away at the moment. Any of the A4 / TT crew interested?

    Lol...a few guys have phoned saying they just thought they only needed to put their name down. I will need to take the payment details too, but the payments won't actually be put through until we've hit the ten driver mark. This just ensures I can add the club discount :)

    Count me in guys. I should be running a pretty decent amount of power out of my 1.8t by then too. I would like some track time and to attend the show and shine. ;)

    So that's 8 from COV, 8 from ASN, 2 from SSS already I believe, so we're almost up to 20 cars :)

    Going to be an amazing day, if anyone wants passenger rides during the day I'm more than happy to take people out for a few laps, Brands lends itself well to swapping Pax as it's such a short circuit, can nip out for 4 laps and only be gone 5 minutes, so loads of time to take anyone out for a spin :)

    Likewise there's a few cars going I'll definitely want a ride in myself!!!

    Perhaps Mark could advise us if there's a cost to sign on a passenger? Other drivers won't pay a penny of course, but often there's a £10 charge or similar to be a pax for a day.

    im not going out on track, although id love to, id rather replace things as they break rather then make them break, and knowing my luck with cars itll be the enigne or turbo lol.

    any way ill be there, plus ill see if i can get a a3 1.8t to come along. but depends

    any way ill be up for passenger ride. i have a helmet i can use so happily pay £10 to get a ride in a quick 1.8t!

    shame i dont have the spare cash to spend on such a day maybe next time round, and id rather not say yes and book then let you guys down.

    and as its 5 miles up the road its not far
