and they've built on a lot of the site as well......so I think that was the main reason as well, as ALL events were not welcome anymore not just Inters.

It was good down at Crowthorne (I think it was a better venue IMO). And it was nice and close to me!

I used to live in bracknell, 5 min drive form there, that was before I had my GTi tho ::) but the amount of times i was at and about and i see loads of beautiful cars 8) One time I was up and about early working on my car and going to get spme parts, I see a few golfs and asked them if i they was lost, they said yep, I was in a black XR2 at the time and I said follow me 8) took them there and one chap bunged me a 5 bob note ;D

I was happy and so were they ;)

Wish i went tho, I have even been to Vanaken a few times and before they was there they was in Bracknell in warfield.

I have even take part in a study in the TRL, drink and drive test but I was on Coke ::), had to drive the sim test car, well funny a rover 214 with a big screen in front of me and do some tests on hand held PC's, took the mron off work and they gave me a ?40 chq :P I did say that i would do some more but I relocated doen to Devon with work.

I agree TRL was a better vanue for Inters. I've noticed since moving it to Brentwiters that there are alot less foreign visitors which is quite sad in my opinion  :'(  I very much enjoyed the Wroughton (Swindon) one apart from the parking on the field.
