    Tuner GP Donington 17th Sept

    Hi all, i have been toying with the idea of going to this event as the club, The only Volvo club that will be from what i have gathered, we would need at least 5 cars, 2 already sorted if we go ahead. We also have a dealership willing to supply us with a car and some bumph including a banner etc. I need a total commitment from anyone who puts thier name down on this thread, no...i cant make it now cos.......

    It will cost me the outlay for the tickets not you guys, so, whats involved.

    Well, 12-15 thousand people, 40 car clubs, magazines like ......evo and Top Gear, Curcuit racing, drag quarter mile runs and drift challenge.
    2 x tv crews, Vauxhall are also launching the new Astra VXR so every press organisation in Europe will be there.

    So a massive event. Your car will be required on the stand cleaned and looking the biz, cost is 10 per ticket for the day but thats entrance, unless you are booked in as a racer you wont be allowed to take part in the driving side. However, sitting in hopefully sun, you will be there representing VF.

    So No messing....who wants to come?

    I will decide if we are going by the response. Over to you guys

    I'll check with Mrs Goof if I'm allowed! - would be a shame to miss out as it's virtually on the doorstep!

    Fun in the twisties!

    I want to go and having spoken to Justin yesterday we need a lot more members to represent us.This site has been a great help to all its members at some point if not all the time and i have met some great people from being a member it seems a shame that more people cant get their act together and give Justin and the moderators some support on days like this,they put a lot of work into making this site great and ask for nothing in return .Sorry about the rant but this is an important day for us members and with nearly 1000 members is this the best we can manage not even 1%

    Justin - have arranged for Mrs Goof to be chef at a Cub Camp - so I'm free to do as I wish (almost)!
    I'll have to bring the lads (7 & 11 yrs) if that's ok? - if so, count me in!
    You want a roof thingy bringing? (forgot the name - green tent with open sides)

    Fun in the twisties!

    Talking

    This may get a few more going...

    I think the day becomes a "run what you brung" later in the evening once the official main event is over. So get yourselves organised into a proper club!!!

    If we do not get enough people for this then I can promise you all this - there will be no further meets planned this year unless you sort them yourselves. Sorry to be harsh but thats the way the cookie crumbles. This event *could* be important to site and yet we cant get 1% of out nion 1000 members to support us
