I'm sadly only doing JAE this year, but I fully recommend RRG. Camping tickets are likely sold out now but it's well worth trying to get hold of some if only for the Saturday evening Tat Auction for charity
My advice is apply for a 15 car stand, get as many people from here registered on it as you can, then hand out spare passes to the public as they drive in down the main road. That's how we got so many on stand in 2017 lol
No one has booked a mighty5s stand for gathering yet...if you need any help, just shout and I'll ask Megan to give you some pointers as she organised us last time and was in charge of Weekender stand until my mate decided to get married the same weekend
Hopefully it's more than just Josh who was at Goodwood at the weekend
Get prepared to put the stand into every conversation lol. Obvs me and Bambi won't be there but she has experience of organising a couple of stands for the forum so can answer questions. If you chat Horney up, he has the flags, banners etc and is a fan of the show so hopefully can be talked into going
With camping tickets sold out it may be wise to help getting interest if you find a local campsite or even a big airbnb that won't mind noisy cars rocking up then give people the option to be a group for the weekend
I'll probably come up just for the day, and bin the 5 in public parking. I went in 2017. It's a worthwhile day-out, and a good opportunity for me to take a few photos of the cars running up the hill. An '06 Mk3 is hardly retro though, even if it does have the required level of rust to qualify.
JamesMk3: Rear left wheel bearing replaced. What a saga. Can now hear noise coming from front right, and alignment is completely knackered. FML.

wannabe: I've had both front bearings replaced on the missus' car over the past few months and it's STILL making a droning noise... lol. Need to check if the mechanic actually replaced the correct one the second time I took it in!!

FFS Corders: Are the wheels straight? Buckles can cause a drone

wannabe: Hmmm... That's an interesting idea... no wheel wobble on the missus' car, which I would have thought was a strong indicator of being out-of-round, but I guess they could be bent side-to-side..??

wannabe: Ooooh, interesting - thanks, Howard. I'll have to get the tyres swapped round to see if it makes a difference! I will be most annoyed if it is tyres, seeing as they are only a few months old...

howardb66: If it is the tyres, don’t chuck them away, try getting them shaved.

wannabe: That sounds pervy haha.

V6: I had an education in dampers today. I like expensive ones. Floaty, not bouncy for the win.

Zed.: that all depends on what you call 'expensive'
