    Default PV Show in June...whats it like?

    I have purchased tickets for this years PVS at Santa Pod, can anyone tell me what I should expect and also and cool tips...........it's my first time, i've owned vauxhalls for years starting with a mk1 astra so very ashamed I have not been before.

    Taking the Siggy 2.0T for a run up there and (still not as modded as I would have hoped) hoping to get some more ideas.

    So any PVS tips??

    its a great show. last year was a bit a nightmare with the rain and the position of the stand (middle of boggyfield), alot of stands on the field left or moved.

    the previous years have been amazin, sun was burnin and alot of stands with real nice cars.

    Vectra C stand is very laid back and friendly stand. Usually a few people fittin new parts they have just bought from the traders, or fixin something that went bad on the journey down.

    If possible join a convoy down to the show, thats a great part of the show too.

    if its hot and dry, it sometimes gets a bit dusty, so take some rags to just dust the car over every now and then.

    In my opinion its a waste of money and time, I went for years on the trot and it got worse and worse I suppose it depends what your into. I know il probobly get hung, drawn and 1/4'd for saying that but thats what I think. Id save your money and go to Billing!

    I agree with Liam,

    It was great in the early/mid 2000's but since 2007ish its gone really really dire Billing is lovely though and I have no idea why I only went the first time last year lol.
