It was bloomin' gridlock over at the Pagani/Koenigsegg/Bugatti/Lambo/Bentley/Porsche section nooo

Why did they put all the popular supercars together frustrated

Will update with pics later Camera

A few tips:

Massive super market just before you go in, buy food and water from there as it's approx EUR2 compared to EUR5 inside. Same with food/snack etc.

If you pre purchase tickets then print off the ticket with the barcode on it, not the confirmation bit as you can use this to get in.

Go later in the day rather then early as it get's less busy.

Do the 'boring' cars at busy times.

It's quite warm in there! Heat

Worth going but I wouldn't be that bothered if I never went again, would much rather go to the V8 Hotel if I am honest Thumb

I went last Saturday and can confirm it was both hot and incredibly busy. I was fortunate enough to get hospitality at a number of the stands which meant I could get away from the hustle and bustle for some quiet time with an endless supply of bubbles and nibbles Grin

Last year I was there midweek and it was much quieter, easy to get around the halls unmolested with little or no queuing to see the more interesting cars. IIRC I only had to queue for the Porsche stand last year (for the lizard green rs puh), but I didn't think they had anything worth fighting the crowds to take a look at this time... Tumble Weed
