After a couple of years off, GMVW will be hosting another rolling road day at TSR Performance Bridgwater in Somerset. Click here for map.

The date is confirmed for April 2nd.

For pictures of the last one, click here

The prices, as always, depend on the amount of cars attending:

Under 30 cars will be £25 per run

Over 30 Cars will be £20 per run

4wd cars will be £5 extra

I will be requiring a £5 deposit to confirm your place. This will be refunded on the day when you pay for your run. Anyone who pays a deposit and doesn't turn up on the day (without good excuse), will have their deposit donated to the Devon and Somerset Air Ambulance.

To get your place, just put reply that you want to attend and PM me with the following

Your forum username,

Your real name,

The car you wish to run and it's reg number.

How you wish to pay the deposit (paypal/cheque)

I'll then add your name to the list and PM you my address/paypal address to send payment and add you to the list. As soon as I receive payment, I'll mark you as confirmed on the list. We have to ask deposits as we have seen rolling road days completely fail without them. We ran deposits last time and had over 45 cars run!

I will also be organising a burger van for the day.

This will be a mainly VAG day, but other makes are welcome to run after the VAG cars have run. It will be on a fist come first served basis, we will not bump off a confirmed non VAG car for a VW.

I've now sorted out the running order. The day will kick off at 9am so this should give you an idea when to turn up.

You need to come and see me when you arrive so I know that you're there.


If anyone who hasn't contacted me wants to turn up and run on the day, we will try to squeeze you on at the end but there is no guarantee that you'll get a space.

Ohh, I'd like to see that![H]

And we've now broken the 30 barrier, so as long as everyone turns up, it's the cheaper price![<:eek:)]

No worries if you can't confirm, if there's room at the end we might be able to squeeze an extra one on.

But it's worth pointing out that we can only run a maximum of 40 cars.

Just emailed the list to TSR. They're going to sort out a running order and get back to me.

Once they do, I'll post up on here and PM you all so you know when roughly you have to turn up.

Cheers

Dave

Glenn - They usually get one done every 10ish mins, depending on how easy it is to set up etc. 4wds usually take an extra 5-10 mins to set up.

JustHarry - Basically, you register and sign a form, then when it's your turn, they drive your car on the rollers, strap it down and do a power run. They usually only do one run per car due to time constraints etc. Once it's done, you'll get a printout with a graph of your power and torque.
