Should be in car show mode not beer mode
Beer mode is for when I get home. Thankfully that doesn't take long.
Just had a terrible thought; beer will be warm when I get back home! :'(
I don’t think I’ll be able to make it. Tickets haven’t arrived and my car is down and out right now. If I come, it will be on my motorcycle.

@AudiNutta myself and Mrrenz35 will see you there at 8:15ish, it's only a short drive there for us
Perfect look forward to meeting you both
What I want to know is if we're going to have a rev off in the supermarket car park like some delinquent teenagers before throwing our McDonald's waste out of the car window and roaring off to the track?
Well that would be irresponsible and I think I’m going to have to decline, however you can do as you wish.
P.S. Be prepared to be made to feel inadequate by two PCW modified RS3’s Nah only kidding, you’ve got the old iron block, we have the more mature aluminium blocks
I would like to hear the difference.
We need a videographer to record this momentous event act of immaturity!
I’m sure we can give them a quick comparison
Did I mention I'm in my 50s. Never grew up!
Age is just a number
It would take a pretty miserable sod to not be excited by the 5-pot in any way at all
May turn up for the convoy but cannot 100% commit myself to this. If I am there then would be good. Certainly don't wait for me though. Need to sort out some petrol as I need to fill up before going into the track. There seems to be a big shortage of fuel stations that would sell 99 fuel such as Tesco or Shell. The Tesco supermarkets in that area seem to have Esso fuel stations. Anybody know roughly what fuel they have on site if any and how much it is ?
Normally there is a good premium on fuel at a track.
Well it would be good to have you but otherwise will see you there
I’m not local so can’t help with the fuel situation unfortunately, I hope you have a couple of decent Jerry cans?
There is a fuel station just before the track, as you said dread to think of the premium on the fuel given location (not sure on the quality of the fuel there either).
No fuel on site that I know of. There are a few in Chippenham but the nearest Shell that I can think of to there is in Pennsylvania.
I’ll try to make the convoy but I’m a 3 hour drive from Combe and bringing my 5 year old so trying to get her up and dressed at 4 will be my biggest hurdle.
If not I’ll see you all in there
All clean for tomorrow.
Sounds good, not the getting your little girl ready part.. not so good
Look forward to seeing you both there.
Looking really good there! I love those wheels, work so well on the car
Got 2 cars to clean today, mine will be the latter so it can go straight in the garage and no dust settles Makes no difference though, the cars seem to always be dust magnets at shows with all the fields around.
No garage for me, going to work in two hours.
There's a farmer's field in the middle of the circuit!
Try and look past the dust then It’s just a personal bug more than anything, chances are nobody will be looking at them that closely... not unless they’re on the deck, on their backsides cars seem to get all the attention these days.
Having full PPF technically I can wipe it down and if it caused any light marking, it will heal itself but IMO I don’t see the PPF as an excuse to mistreat it.
Looking forward to tomorrow now, fingers crossed the weather will be good.
Forecast is cloudy with sun later. The weather guessers are rarely correct, though.
There used to be, it's all solar panels now..
Quick q, is there going to be any ASN merch there tomorrow?
Technically, there's still a farmer's field there, it just doesn't have crops growing in it anymore!
Drive safe tomorrow guys and enjoy the show. Look forward to the pics.
All ready. Mates even going to lower himself to come in the S3
Why am I the only one sat in Morrisons car park?
Really nice to meet everyone today, it was a great turnout with some stunning cars!
Yep, nice to put some faces to forum names. Had a great day... you can just see @AudiNutta hiding in the background
Nicest range of colours on our stand thanks to the green and orange S3s.
I got there but was told i couldn't join you guys even though there was a nice space for me.. didn't get to introduce myself as every time i went past you all hid from me. lol. Cars all looked good though....
@Starry saw yours, i think. Does it have matt APR stickers at the top of the front wings? Looks the dogs, not many saloons there...
And his car hiding from the 14 seconds of rain under the big top.
The light specs I could cope with but it got heavy for a moment or two
Water = water spots
Great to meet you all yesterday guys, I think I spoke to everybody on our stand and that’s a nice change. All stunning cars on our stand as always and great people.
I remembered I was tasked with taking photos as people started to leave, but here are some below just before the first car left. My new ASN show plate looked great as well, it was the only thing on the sand signifying is because of the lack of flags :/
The C5 RS6 gets a lot of love from me

AudiNutta many thanks for the pics, not many people are interested in the old barge haha.
Enjoyed the day but thought the show was a little lacking and track action thin but being it’s first year to be expected. Hope to attend next year too!
