I've been to a few car type "meets" over the past 20odd years of driving, some are better than others and they are a good way of gaining knowledge and tips bout suspension set-up, engine management tweaks, cam timing etc...etc...in order of the sporty cars i've owned i've done the following "meets" :
Lancia Delta Integrale, first proper car aged 21 but i did work in a garage and bought it with bodywork damage and restored it to glory and enjoyed track day meetings and got to meet a few very good drivers etc.
Alfa Romeo 75 Twin-Spark 2.0 Turbo Special, Italian LHD import and absolutely immaculate in red with black leather interior/red piping, again Alfa track days and Alfa meet n' greets where i gained a helluva lot of help and experience from folk regarding the initial set-up, mental car and fun to drive also handled really well due to the di-dion rear suspension and gearbox over the back axle, perfect weight distribution. A ditzy **** female driver rear ended me on the motorway as i sat in roadworks and wrote it off as she was applying make up whilst driving, i was on my way back up to scotland after attending one of the prestige alfa shows and i came so close to punching her lights out but the driver in front that i was pushed into thankfully stopped me.
Mk2 Scirocco 1.9 8v on twin 40's, Corrado 2.1 16v on GSXR carbs and Mk2 Golf ABT tuned 2.0 16v (current car) All VW meets and track days in the past 10years, usually the Nurburgring every year and Knockhill plus a few others inbetween dependant on funds and time available, All good fun and some really-really quick cars that put many a supercar to shame.
Audi RS4 ABT tuned, got an invite from a mate to attend an exclusive Audi meet a couple of years ago as he'd been invited by ABT tuning having got his RS4 and Q7 tuned by them, sitting at 200+mph in an ABT Audi R10 is a surprisingly calm place to be after some of the MK2 Golfs i've sat in as they bounce around the track.
A friend bought a Lotus Exige S with full factory track kit earlier on this year and i've done a few track days this year wi him, scarily fast but it does have a V6 supercharged engine producing 370bhp, i've been physically sick with the force of the acceleration using launch control, and gave myself a headache behind the eyes with the force it can brake at but i still jump at the chance to drive it - not really a car to do car park meets in but the Lotus track days are a hoot with driving tuition thrown in for free by their test drivers.
