Out of curiousity, what was the layout for the stand!?!
There wasn't one, When I arived there was 30-40 cars already (Some were there not long after 6 apparently.
With not enough people to deal with positioning everyone it wasn't worth even trying to re-arange everyone. Also, with the wind, we needed more people on hand to erect the marquee.
I agree the parking of cars on the stand needed alot more attention.
On the contrary guys, I think the randomness makes the navigation of the stand, especially to Joe Public, all the more interesting. As much as I love Trophy's, I just didn't feel the need to walk along the line; I was more interested in strolling past each different car one at a time.
 
Many thanks to the organisers for there hard work and dedication at setting this up

However no thanks to the idiot and ignorant members of the forum. For this reason alone this will be my last ever FCS and any forum meet I suspect
 
Bad parking, i wasn't too impressed either.
Yep your right plus the on track driving and standard of the track left a lot to be desired.

Thanks for your help though I meant to text you but havn't got your number or anything (pm's are to full)

Im guessing he got blocked in by the people parking around him either when he went for track or went to leave. I would say its unfair to be upset about driving standards on track a lot of people would have been new to track driving...

Good effort. organisation was ALOT beta than last yr. But then again the space we had this yr was far more useable!

Thasts no excuse IMO.
FCS driving standard are always much lower than anywhere else on track including circuits abroad etc. If the drivers were on propere track days many would be pulled off and the circuit would have been kept in a good state.

Edde, i've seen alot worse driving std's than that fella. inc RS trackdays! To judge it on that is a little obtuse.

The parkin was fine apart from bloor parkin bang smack in the way on the way out! ;) I just used him as a chicane tho! lol

Yeah, next year bloor will get a dedicated parking space.
(Which will have to be circular, i imagine)

If he moves from that space, a member of admin will set fire to his car.
 
Thought it was good..would have liked more stuff to buy though..not very impressed with what was on offer.
And though it would have been better if there was a proper timetable for the CS show and shine..was of down the track when it happened.

Good to meet the peeps I did :)

The next show will have more merchandise, as we were concentrating on the packs/rebrand.

Cannot say much for the RS track days as I've only ever attended one. However I do feel the driving and track was poor.

I felt like (now I know where he lives) poping round in a lorry tomorrow and leaving it blocking his drive.

I know FCS is never going to be good driving but I keep giving them the benefit of the doubt and going back only to be again let down.

Just because I expect it not to be grewat doens't IMo give any excuse for that poor level of driving.

A lot of people on track though will be first timers and not know track etiquette. It's hardly fair for a veteran to judge noobs on a cheap, ill organised car show track event. No-one is forcing anyone to go out, those that do, should obviously take caution with that amount of people on at one time, many not experienced either.

Hey at least you lot got in,i paid for tracktime but the scum on the gates wanted another £30 from us to get in so i told them where to stick it.
I will be on to Rockingham today to compain about it,nowhere sells you tracktime and then an entry fee on top.

Liam:mad:
did you not realise you had to pay to get into the show???

what EXACTLY was the problem with the track driving?

I assumed everyone bar Markcup was a novice and treated them like that, until it was obvious we were reading from the same page to over take or what not.

I didnt think the standard was too bad. i didnt once have to dive on the brakes or take evasive action due to someone else's driving.

I was far too IAM to make any decent progress. I should have hunted out the clear track more decisively.

Missed opportunity TBQH.
