Anyone going?

We are, as we are well on our way with our T5 mods.
It's only half hour from us so we have decided to go and take a look, I guess there will be a lot of splits, bays and beetles etc but I love the olds and hopefully there will be a few T's as well, plus some trade stands to get the wallet out for ?

This is a good show for the air cooled VW feel but not a lot of T4 and T5 stuff, we used to go but after last years traffic nightmare (bumper to bumper traffic and being diverted to alternate parking that was just full up then diverted back out into the traffic, we gave up and went home)
This show needs to move to a larger venue as its rammed full inside and out, fab splits and bays etc but not enough room for more types of VW's in my opinion, giving it a big miss this year.

Yes you are right Kev, we have certainly noticed it the last 2 - 3 years getting busier, if its raining and everyones inside it can get rammed, we was only talking about this the other day saying it needs to go somewhere bigger, like the nec, but not sure about camping facilities anywhere nearby, luckily for us we have family just around the corner, so we go up friday night and just walk to Sandown in the morning, but do feel for you guys when we are walking past all the traffic............T:

Nice one mole, I will keep an eye out.

Does anyone know what time the carparks open up?
I've tried contacting the show organisers but no response yet, if possible we would like to park up early, grab a coffee before gates open.

Is there anywhere nearby to park up/camp for the night? We were hoping to drive down saturday morning and camp locally so as to get i early on Sunday...! Sounds like it may be a saturday visit instead!:(

No much in the way of t4 from previous experience its mainly air cooled ! There's a water coolers area but not many unless its changed? But some top class vws there.
