Rob, really appreciate you taking the time to follow up and organise this.

I'm definitely keen.. only slight spanner in the works... My wife is 'due' on the 25th Feb so that probably cuts me out of Feb and March...

I appreciate April is a long time to wait so I might have to pic this up next time.. unless it turns out that April works better for the majority.

Cheers

thanks so much for looking into this!

i can do either weekday or weekend with a preference for weekend, although i'm easy.

could road surfaces still be a bit slimey in feb? however even with timings, i'm easy.

Best,
Darren

1. congrats!
2. I'd be more than happy to wait until April when it will be brighter, longer days, dryer less salty roads etc...

Sorry to say "I'm oot".

Too expensive and too comprehensive for what I'm after. I'm really only interested in finding out how to correct oversteer on a slippery surface.

I'm sure it will be a lot of fun and thanks to you Rob for looking into this and setting it up.

Sainsbury's Car Park for me again on Boxing Day.

Thanks for the congrats.

Rob I should be able to do weekday or weekend which ever it works out to be.

Kim... you should organise a 993 Group Day at a Sainsbury's car park. I'd come to that too Smile

......yes I am up for this....February I feel will be too early and the weather perhaps still a little chilly....as for days to dothis my preference would be an early week day but also could do a week-end if necessary.

Sounds brilliant Rob, thanks for putting this together. If we can get it down to £370 it looks like good value for what we get.

April or May when the weather is better that would be awesome, it'll come around really quickly that's for sure! I can do a weekday or a weekend.

Can't wait to try the high speed bowl and alpine circuit! My brother in law has been and he says it's mind blowing (was with the Atom club).

OK. General consensus appears to be April at the earliest.

Good with me, as hopefully my suspension refresh, mounts, front tyres and all the other little bits will have been done by then, plus putting some pennies in the piggy bank for this!

In the Yes list so far:

Rob (robipswichuk)
Tom (tmilligan)
Cameron (cambjones)
Darren (diddy_p)
Andy (madalaa)
Sam (cyruspower)

Woohoo that's a full day already assuming we can get a mutually convenient date.

Awaited responses:

Sundeep (911uk)
Tony (Clinchy)
Andy (andyp)
Rogttr

Unfortunately can't make it

Kim Hollamby

I don't want to get into reserve lists or anything yet as this is all still very fluid until we've got dates on the table.

Guy's any thoughts on opening up spaces to other aircooled if need-be to keep the price as low as possible.

Jo from CAT has said that a Saturday and Sunday are a possibility!
Hadn't thought of that myself Embarassed

On that basis I'm gonna try to go for a Saturday/Sunday or worst case Friday/Saturday in April and see how people are with dates, then open up any spaces to the remaining Air-Cooled fraternity.

Got a potential 10 993's (8 confirmed 2 O/S) so far, so don't need to find many others.

If any of the other air-cooled community are interested please let me know, either PM or response on here.
