Is anyone on here going? I've never been before so has anyone got any tips? I hear it can get quite busy.

Cheers.

its very good and lots to see from the 5 axis milling machines making parts from solid billets to the pistonheads car show.
The live shows used to be alot better but Petter Solberg is there this year so should be better.
You can spend a full day there.

Yeah I can't wait. Our live action ticket is at 6pm so got to wait all day to see some hooning!

Might skip the machine tool bit! I get to visit engineering trade shows around the world with work as we design and manufacture machine tool probes and calibration instruments so see this type of thing a lot. Some of the massive DMG Mori machining centres are truly mind blowing!

It's awesome, plenty to see, I find you have to do a few laps round the place to see everything

I find it a great start to the year. Really wets my appetite for the season ahead.
I just like looking at the cars and engineering (& the trailers, but that's because I'm weird!)

My trailer fetish has been satisfied
PRG Monza & BJ RS5's are like bloody hotels. Both bigger than my garage I think!
