Think you can keep up...?

Hi,

I am here to offer you a challenge...

I am an RS4 owner who is setting up a day at Bruntingthorpe Air Field for some top speed driving. The twist is that I use AudiSRS forum and am challenging BMW's and a Merc forums to bring 20-25 cars and put them up against us AudiSRS members, so we will have only German car forums there for a bit of friendly rivalry!!

Well, more like a fun day out really at VMax - Index - pitting your BM's against other German metal. Please don't think I am affiliated with VMAX200 at all, you can find my thread on AudiSRS here - AudiSRS.com :: Log in - this is a thread for the SRS members to attend a normal VMAX200 day. You'll also find on that board a list started for this day too.

The day is around 220-230 all in and you can basically run as many times as you want or as many times as your wallet dictates.

Should this be something which a few of you would like to do, then if one member could take the reins and get a list going, that way when we get all three forums with enough runners, I have one point of contact for each forum. I am planning on doing this around March next year so plenty of time yet...!!! If we can get some solid numbers as we need at least 60 cars in all to book the day as a private day. VMAX dates are closely guarded as no spectators are allowed and the dates will be confirmed only a week or two before the actual date. You may bring one passenger per car but no more.

I hope this is something that you'd be interested in and prove what your cars can do....

M3cutters have started getting a few on their list and it would be great to see a few high powered M5's here too The Merc boys have a list going too and have some pretty high powered metal ready for the line up as do we. It'll be great to have a few of you guys along for the day too.

Should you need any further info or if someone wants to take the lead here, feel free to contact me on [email protected] and I'll give you as much info as you need.

Regards

Nick

Imran, you have three spaces confirmed. Good to see some M Power (or maybe it should be some E Power) on board!
