    Nice to meet you all today, a few from images from me, didn't bother with the camera as much as I should have.

    Was a good show although a little surprised by how few trade stands there were! Nice to put some faces to usernames too!

    Just can't believe my sat nav took me and @T9 0LLE down the dusty track into the circuit and completely ruined how clean my car had managed to stay for the 180 mile journey there in like 2 minutes :monkey:

    Yeah god knows why the sat nav was sending people that way. I didn't have anything to clean all the dust off my car, gutted after I spent a couple of hours polishing the damn thing yesterday!
    @andybond the new wheels look great pal.
    @T9 OLLE your car looks so good, the gold wheels really suit it. Shame I didn't bump into you and @182_steve for a chat, maybe @csf?

    Whose was this inferno? The pair of them were really tidy but I liked the wheels on this one.

    Yep- just got back myself. One other very nice Phase 1 (Mark:-) and good talking to the admin guys n girls, and Sunglasses Ron of course:-) (Shame CS Dave couldnt make it)
    Young guys next to me in the silver Phase 2- credit to you for your first ever track day, and everyone else i spoke to was nice to meet you. Very tempted for Cliosport festival all the way upnorth.

    My track sesh great fun, was overtook by just about everyone on first 20mins, then found my feet and sussed the track line out a bit. Some struggled to keep up with me occasionally. Left the site with no plates,and when at the petrol station checked the tyre pressures and they were all bleeding over the place quite severely. So think that may have contributed to my lardiness

    Still, great day, home safe, and the cars still a runner . LOL

    Seems like it was a great day. Seems from this thread there's a few people I would've liked to have met (and some not so much, cough, @NorthloopCup , splutter) so hopefully see you all at CSF.

    Let us know how you get on today Ryan :-)
    My sesh, enjoyed it thoroughly. but everyone overtaking me (Fair few turbos) makes me think i must sharpen up, or get a quicker car. 197 sounds nice :-)

    I was parked with the RS197/200 lot a bit up from you guys, looked like a good turnout and had a good nosey around the stand!
    Just got home now, sunburnt and knackered but was an ace weekend, did have a wonder round the VAG show today too which was decent also.

    I spotted your car Steve but didn't see you at all. It was a good turn out of mk3's up there, no alien green though they stay with the elite

    Yeah was a good turnout, managed to win 2nd best club stand too, not bad for a 9 month old club!
    You're right actually, can't think of any AGs in the club at all!

    Just home, had a great weekend!
    Spent my entire time away from the stand so didn't get a chance to speak, that and I'm socially inept at the best of times! Haha, it was my girlfriends first trip to something like that and I'm pleased to say she genuinely enjoyed it Well done for the turnout, I'll be back again next year, aiming to hit the track next time too...

    Really appreciate that . I was a bit 50/50 on them TBH.

    Few people came up to me and commented they liked them as well.

    Of course I dont do the car stuff for anyone else but me , but it helps ease the mind.

    My first time on the cs.net stand and I have to say I was made to feel very welcome and I've learnt a lot more about this club, well done to everyone "behind the scenes" I'll be back again next year, ALSO my first proper time on track with my 197 and I'm shocked as to how well it handled, had a few cheeky overtakes lol, did anyone get pictures of me?
