I believe this was where Bob ended up with a small deficit on the day which he insisted he would pay. MAJORITY of those that put their name down did pay even if they were not there

Guys, I’m not going to mince my words here

This is turning into a disgrace. You’ve all signed up saying “yes we’d love Paul (Burntout) to organise a track day for us”.


The man has committed time and money to it

And then when push comes to shove you all leave him in the lurch with a simple “sorry can’t make it”

We’ve had this before on this forum, which is why organising track days died down. Don’t be surprised if one never gets organised again

As I said it’s a disgrace
Very well put...BUT... Having supported Bob’s previous track days I really find it quite ironic. IIRC there was quite a few posts at the time about people deciding that they couldn’t / wouldn’t turn up and felt they didn’t need to pay in the FULL commitment after he proceeded to book/pay/commit in all good faith. POT.....KETTLE.....BLACK maybe ?
https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=1391205

Your memory is letting you down. So I've posted the thread on Bobs Snetterton Track Day. Knock yourself out trying to find me signing up for it, because I didn't as I knew I couldn't make it (would love to have gone, it looked fantastic). And if I had done and then dropped out I would have, of course, compensated those that did go.

I'm not going to take offence as I don't know you Tony and you clearly don't know me (or you would know I would not let someone down if I had committed to something).

But in the words of the great Tony Hall, I will say one thing "tosser!" smile

Edited by RobDown on Sunday 11th February 15:52
Opps sorry. Maybe I didn’t make it quite clear. NOT aimed at you in the slightest Rob and certainly didn’t mean to offend you or tar you with the same brush as others. I agree with your comments totally. The point I was making more more about an organiser getting their fingers burnt trying to put on event for the benefit of others.
Still a Tosser.....so you are right...nothing has changed....

Would love to. Unfortunately unless driving ‘like Miss Daisy’ track days are pretty heavy on the DBS. My ‘old’ V12V was awesome but the extra weight in the DBS especially on such an abrasive surface like Rockingham really would take its toll. I guess double stinting the car with my son and having one of the AM pro drivers with us on a one-to-one all day previously didn’t help the situation. I could come along with all good intentions of taking it easy BUT we all know how those plans can work out!
Hope it all does come together and everyone has a good, safe day

LOL just had a read through all the last posts....

Well I will say one thing, if this is meant to happen then it will... I have just sat and emailed all the ones on the list that havnt paid, just in case they havnt been on here for a while?? I think this is all I can do.

Also, Anne Reed has said she will be posting on the AMOC forum to see if she can help out with getting a few more on board..

I think I have done all I can... banghead

Paul,

Just a thought that may help in the circumstances,although something you may have already considered…….if so ignore me.

Lancaster at Cambridge and/or AM Nottingham are both geographically close to Rockingham and with a bit of sweet talking may circulate the event details to their respective customer base in case they can reach owners this forum hasn't.

Equally John McGurk is not that far away and as he's a friend of the forum he too may consider favourably shooting a mail to his client base to help out.

It may help cover any potential short fall and help guarantee your event,something you deserve after all the effort you have put in.

All the very best in getting the numbers you need.

Ed.

Ps, I haven't read all though this topic so if I'm covering old ground as I said at the start……... just ignore me…….biggrin

Exactly. I also seem to remember one signee in particular who never paid Bob. That’s irony for you.

Hi all,

Huge apologies for my absence, I’ve been away for half the year at bloody exhibitions, so first time I’ve logged on for ages.

Also, in the recent snow, my wife’s car was written off by an out of control Audi/sledge and then (wait for it!) Daddy (me) comes to the rescue in my tax efficient and very dull Outlander and does same sledge down the hill and writes off two cars and my own! Disastrous times and a ste beginning to 2018.

Anyway, Paul, I’m still in and wanting to pay now.

I’ll now scroll through the pages to find your bank details!

Looking forward to it chaps!

Robbo

Morning chaps,

Just wanted you to know that I've just paid Paul and am very excited! clap

I'm going to email an old mate who has a DB9, he might make up the much needed numbers!?

Anyway, have a great week all, I'm snowed in, the bloody hire car isn't four wheel drive!

Now going to book the Hilton hotel for the Saturday night.beer

Cheers,

Robbo

Installing SAP ???
You will need more than a day. You may not see the light of day for at least 6 months.
I wish you all the luck in the world :-)

You are not wrong we started the project last March and went live January hence why I have waited and waited as things must get better but no !!!

Really pissed off as it has been forced on to us by our German parent company.
