Oh yes the ASN crew doing illegal speeds sounds brilliant.

I know that Basingstoke Audi were keen to host events just like this. I'm in regular contact with the master tech there so can help with arranging this if you like. Let me know Sandra!

No worries @Sandra! I'll get in touch with them and let you know if they're still interested in hosting a meet.

Exactly Ian. I don't want to burst your bubble here, but not all dealerships have R8's

Basingstoke Audi (despite being in Hampshire and not Berkshire and therefore arguably less posh :playful:) do regularly have R8s in their showroom and workshop, so you won't be disappointed.

@Sandra, do you have any dates in mind or an idea of timescales?

So are you saying that "In Hertfordshire, Herefordshire and Hampshire Huracans hardly happen Eliza" ? Rofl

How about July ?

In July we'd need to be careful to avoid other major VAG meets, so how about these dates:
  • Saturday 23rd
  • Sunday 24th
  • Saturday 30th
  • Sunday 31st

Sundays are generally best for meets IMO but I don't want to break any conventions so I'll take your lead. Depends on the dealership too I guess. I've suggested the idea in principle to Basingstoke Audi now anyway and they're definitely keen, just waiting on sign-off from management.

I've had a few discussions with my contact at Basingstoke Audi now and I have good news and bad news...

Bad news :cry:
The dealership is undergoing a £1m overhaul starting in a few weeks' time, so July is out of the question.

Good news :relaxed:
The idea of the meet has been officially approved and a new date of Sunday October 30th suggested to ensure that the overhaul is complete in time. They're fully invested in the idea of the meet and have some fantastic ideas that should make for a very special event. I can divulge the following for now:
  • Catering to be included
  • Full access to their workshop
  • RS & S models on display
  • Pre-bookable guided health checks

There are some other plans afoot that I'll keep as a surprise for the day, but if they can pull it off it'll make for an unmissable occasion for Audi fans!
