    Just received this email. Is it just me or does it sound like we aren't actually getting to drive the Supra hardly at all???

    Sounds like a passenger ride, a convoy drive which will undoubtedly be at low speed and a drive in a completely different car!

    Lol sounds uninspiring :/ kinda glad I rejected it in favour of a dealer test drive and not having to drive so far down south

    I think it will be a fun day out but as an actual showcase of what the car can do and as a test drive I don't think it will be up to much. My dealer said he is trying to get a car up for a day as another customer can't make the event so hopefully I might get a drive of one then too on the actual roads it will be on day to day. If I'd have known not going to this event would guarantee a drive from the dealer I may have gone down that route too...

    Sounds less like a test drive than an advertising event :confused:

    I'm keen for a convoy in the morning if others are! I'm staying about 30 mins away from the track so if anyone's closer could meet there?

    We will be on the Andover Junction of the A303 staying at the travel lodge there.

    Planning on leaving around 08:10 or so, so come meet us there if anyone wants to convoy.
