Performance German Day - Sat 13th July 2019 (instead of Audi Driver International)

Post by TechNick » Wed Jun 19, 2019 2:10 pm

Audi Driver International ('ADI'), held at Castle Combe Motor Racing Circuit, has been a regular venue for RS246 for several years.
Unfortunately, along with several other car shows, it's not being held this year.

However, there's a new show - 'Performance German Day' being held on Saturday 13th July.
It's obviously not exclusively Audi, but could be considered a spiritual successor, especially as (like ADI) it offers the opportunity to also take your car on track, if you so wish.

As it's the first year for this event, it would be good to show some support (especially as they're stepping up when others are backing down).

More details can be found on FB (here) or on the official website (here).

Although I've discussed it with the organisers, I've not officially registered RS246 just yet - we'll need a better idea of numbers before then - so please don't try to book tickets just yet.
I'll submit our club registration by Sunday 23rd July.

For now, please just copy and paste the list below, and add your name/car details if you're interested in attending, along with whether or not you'd like to go on track.

I'll be abroad that week. And I don't have a German car. I was looking forward to ADI though as it's a nice drive for me and they still let non Audis in.

Thanks Gary. :thumbs:

Well, I've registered RS246 regardless (and just estimated 6 cars + gazebo, for the size of stand needed).
Appreciate it's all fairly last minute, but 'RS246' is now available on the list of clubs to book advance tickets against - click here, and select 'RS246' from the menu.
The 'Club Code' is <not supplied yet!> - I'll edit this post when it's available!

It's £10 per person to enter, and track time (half or full day) can be purchased at an additional cost through the same page (only 3-4 slots left, when I last looked).
Club stand (and size) is confirmed based upon tickets purchased, so please keep the list below updated with that info also!

1. Technick - R8 - no track time - tickets not bought yet
2. GaryA - RS4 B7 - no track time - tickets not bought yet

@FaisalJ & @Rusty Racer - did you want to add your names down too?

*Edit: URL for booking tickets has changed - link corrected above

.
Update:
Apparently, all club tickets had to be purchased online by yesterday (even though we never got a 'Club Code' issued), so we've missed the boat... :roll:
The only remaining option (to get an RS246 stand at the show) is for a single payment (to cover everyone on the stand) to be made within the next day or two...

Overall, the best bet is probably just for individuals to book tickets directly (here) or pay £15 on the gate.

Many thanks for trying to sort this out, much appreciated.
I'll probably see what the weather is like and pay on the gate or take the dog for a nice walk and pub lunch.
Many thanks again

No worries @GaryA - was all a bit too last minute, it seems!
Wasn't sure how many people assumed ADI was still on this year, and this seemed like a good alternative.

Anyhow, yeah, gate entry seems like the best option.
For anyone that does want to get advance tickets online (here), to save a few quid, I've just learnt that the deadline for doing so is a week from now (Friday 5th July). :beerchug:

I booked with another club as at the time I searched for a rs246 stand and couldn’t see any. Shame as I’d much rather be with yourselves too.

Yeah, I'm still hoping to make it along but, alas, won't be flying the rs246 flag either.
