    Default 2009 Meets / Suggestions etc..

    Firstly I'd like to apologise for the delay in getting this info posted up, around the begining of November I emailed quite a few Tuning companies and Rolling Road Venues with the intention of hopefully putting together a Multi Region Tuning & Rolling Road 2 stage event / meet, The idea was to arrange a meet at a Tuning company so that anyone who wanted to could have a remap / new exhaust / springs etc fitted one week and then a week or two later attend a Rolling Road meet to see what (if any) gains had been obtained.
    The problem i've had is that hardly anyone i've contacted has replied to my emails or PM's where i simply asked if the company concerned would be prepared to let us hold a meet for members of Vectra-c.com and where the need arose carryout any work required ie remap, exhaust etc, So far i have only had 3 companies respond, which i am surprised at given the current economic state of the country, i would have thought any chance given to increae sales would have been jumped on, Those companies who responded were Track n Road, TorquingBHP & Thorney MotorSport, Steve & Steve @ Track n Road (a trustworthy rolling road) are happy for us to go back anytime we want, the only issue there is that we can only get 10 to 15 cars run in a day, Darrel @ TorquingBHP (remaps etc) is unfortunatley in a bit of Pain at the moment (Hope you get better soon m8) and John Thorne of ThorneyMotorSport (Rolling road / tuning) said as soon as they get a list of dates when their motorsport division aren't using the facilities he will let me know, he said it would be around the end of Jan when he should know more..

    To date i've not had responses from DAP, Courtenay's, Regal autosports and VXRPC to name but a few..
    So there you have it, After almost 3 months of chasing emails still nothing confirmed


    Suggestions / requests for 2009 meets

    If you have any suggestions for meets this Year (Preferably not a tour of all of the shopping centres we have in the East) then let either Myself or Ian know and we'll try to get it arranged..

    hopefully I'll be going to the 1st Brands Hatch BTCC event, We could make this into a meet or mini meet if anyone wants to join?? I know that Jon (JayKay) and Paul (Taffyopel) are going aswell... (when I say hopefully I mean if the weathers bad then I won't bother!!)

    Also hoping to get something arranged for Santa Pod,(for Dean & Glynn) preferably in the warmer months, i'll speak to Big Phil about this as it may be a chance for another Dual / Multi Region meet..

    I have a suggestion! Now that fuel prices have fallen so low, why don't we all drive round and round the M25 until we dry up all the fuel stations we come to? I have really missed my car over the last four months and want to catch up on what I missed you see

    If there were places here in the uk similar to Irmscher it'd be a good option..

    I'd like to organise a track day, but with all the costs involved, track hire, track day insurance, organisors insurance, club insurance, track staff etc it works out too expensive for most people to have a go at it..

    Sounds like a good idea Karl.. used to drive around the M25 in my boy racer days, Quite a laugh to be had when you have 5 or 6 400bhp+ Cossies on a night drive out..

    PS:- You need a shave Karl, or are you trying to blend in with the locals
