There is an extension to buy advance tickets - closing date tomorrow - for £15 (instead of £20 on the gate).

I assume that we’re not with a club stand - right?

Great! filling up nicely and should be a big show!
Heres some advice from Calvin, the organiser, depending on wether youve got advanced tickets or not . . . .
Either way we are in the RED zone and you need to ask for
AOC (Audi Owners Club)
The club flags will have this logo on them -


**NOTE: Do NOT head for other stands in the same colour zone!
Yes indeed there are a ridiculous amount of similar names - we know!
AOG (Audi Owners Group)
AOUK (Audi Owners UK)
AOC.com (Audi Owners Club.com)
AOCUK

You can get in from 7am with advanced tickets, or 10am if youre paying at the gate. I would suggest any who want to arrive early come in at say 08:30am to allow for the club stand to be set up and laid out, but any time is fine - you will just be asked to help if you're very early!

Thanks Neil, that's very helpful info.
I'm pretty sure that when I ordered my ticket I chose AOCUK from the drop-down list as I didn't see plain AOC in the list. Still in the red area though.

Where do you find AOC online, I tried a search but just found some of the others....
