GTI SPRING FESTIVAL - APRIL 13th 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUNDAY APRIL 13th 2008
GTI SPRING FESTIVAL
Contact: 01279 72 52 52 or www.vwaction.co.uk
Venue: Santa Pod Raceway, Wellingborough, Northants. NN29 7XA.

The 'GTi Spring Festival' now in its fourth year, has certainly grown and grown. It is now without doubt a very major 'Season Opener'. It already exceeds the visitor numbers of the July 'GTI Summer Festival', which has been running for 16 years! With Sprinting, Show and Shine, Clubs, Autojumble and Traders, it follows a simple formula, which has for many years has included the Fireforce Jet Funny Car which will be the one vehicle guaranteed to have most of the audience rushing track side the second it fires up for each demonstration pass.

The show itself offers all day sprinting for a single signing on fee, which is hugely popular. But don't forget your driving licence (you cannot sign on for Sprinting without it). The early season event was good for many personal bests last year, which may be down to a combination of the 'track bite' glue sprayed on to the Santa Pod quarter-mile, and the very good air quality at this time of year. 'Personal Bests' set at Santa Pod are also 'real', meeting all international timing standards. The timing equipment is accurate to within less than one thousandth of a second.

The overall formula for this show is very simple, the major elements being the activity on the Sprint Track/Drag Strip and the Show and Shine. The Show and Shine is one of the best in the country, with in the region of 100 contestants. There is no charge for entry into the Show and Shine, and it is becoming a popular show at which to debut new or revamped cars after the winter lay off. Gates open at 8.00am with the track open from 10.00am. There is plenty of opportunity to browse trade stands, check out the autojumble and club displays, as well as watch (or even try a few runs on) the dragstrip. Overseas visitors to the show will receive free admission on production of their ferry tickets/proof of travel, we expect to see a few more European visitors this year.

MISS IT . . . MISS OUT!

i spoke to steve about it (macdaddy) i know he is busy trying to sort the r-fest and nurnburgring trip out but he likes idea of trying to get a stand/ pitch sorted out to be in force, so lets get around 10 or more names down first so its worth while if somone takes it on to arrange the stand.

It doesn't matter if it's standard, it's not really a stand in that sense. As long as your doors not hanging off and you don't have lexus lights your more than welcome i'd say!
