    From my perspective, it was absolutely rubbish.

    After taking a week of work to clean and prep my car, I had to drive over a gravel/dirt road to enter the show. My car has never been that dirty in the 5 years I've owned it.

    Once parked, again on gravel, in the built not bought paddock, car kept being covered in layers of dust from all the other cars parking and manoeuvring.

    Parade lap was squeezed into the end of the Saturday to accommodate the VAG tuner show on the Sunday. Absolute chaos, no organisation, no timings for clubs, just a free for all to get to the track. Took over an hour of waiting. Once you were finally on the track, you were escorted round it at 20mph. Seriously, I could have cycled it quicker.

    For the chill-out day, again another rally stage to get to the centre of the circuit where we were based. Again, dust but with the inclusion of some mud. 2 cars in our group got damaged travelling to and from the stand/venue.

    If it's not at a better venue next year, then I won't be attending.
