    The sooner you get your position booked, the more likely it is we are to be allocated more space.

    Leaving it till the last minute means it could potentially be a tight squeeze for everybody.

    I liked the idea off voting for the top spots on the stand by people posting there cars on a thread and having a pole

    We've tried this and it failed for the reason Connor listed.

    We had a set list of how people should be laid out. The members turned up, dumped their cars and then went for a walk so we unfortunately had to disappoint some people.

    Ultimately, this show is about getting together with your fellow C2 drivers, having a laugh and looking at some nice cars. It honestly doesn't matter if your car is at the front, back or middle of the stand so long as you have a good time

    I agree it was tried and ultimately failed, if you want your carnear the front, get there earlier and make sure its near the front. If everyone knows its first come first served them no1 will be left disappointed ^.*

    Plussssssss, WHEN we (not if) park in a more uniformed way, then its way more inviting to walk about and look at all the cars with space around them as oppose to it being like trying to walk between cars like they are parked at Tesco's on a busy Sunday afternoon.

    This is also very true. Last year was basically "theres a little bit of room at the front, ill park there" them everyone else just got as close as possible to the front, id say there was less room than tesco car park tbf... Haha!

    With a little bit of planning, and if we get the same space as last year? I reckon we can make a good stand of it

    I think C2Connor did a good idea categorize it. With performance, Euro, and others. Because people would be able to get a good idea of how people have put a twist of there own on there own car (personal opinion) Am not saying that the club should be split into groups. But I should definitely be making this and I hope I'll get to enjoy myself

    My concern is it will put people off and some will feel alienated because they don't 'have lows'/performance mods/deep enough wheels etc. Plus logistically to get each group to arrive at the same time might be a bit of a pain. What if all the Euro's turn up, and the 'performance' need to get them to move because someone arrives late but they have already parked and we can't move anyone so they have to park with the lows and so on so it all goes out of the window.... Plus you would need to say who goes at the back, and this isn't fair to any group or owner.

    I think parking as a club with a mixture of themes and mods is the better way. This way people are drawn into the stand and all cars get seen. What impresses others might not get a look in with others but parking with a mix and in a good structure and formation gives everyone the fairest way to show off their car.

    I agree with Joni, it was enough of a faff last year. It's still a nice idea though and would work if the groups turned up together but in reality they won't.

    I agree with the mixed stand. At the end of the day, this is a C2 owners club. Not a C2 tuners. c2 modified, C2 sports club.

    We are a group of enthusiasts who come together to appreciate the cars for what they are and proples unique take on them. I liked the fact we had tastefully modified cars next to euro cars, performance spec cars next to brilliant condition standard examples.

    Being a student, I'm very short for money a lot of the time. And what money I do have I save up and spend on the car depending on how much student finance I have left after I've paid the rent and bought some private place and lights and spraying my alloys..... I'll do my best to make it there
