    Already in my calendar.

    I would also add that this is a good family day out if you've got a partner and/or children who don't like car shows. - For the value of some of the cars they're throwing around on the track, they're remarkably relaxed about things like letting children sit in them for photos.

    It's just about the only event that my wife will attend, and that's probably mostly for a picnic on the grass.

    This year I'll bring some picnic food this year, rather than an asda buttie and crisps! [​IMG]

    *Bump* - Not this weekend, but next weekend.

    I haven't bought my ticket(s) yet, but I'm still planning on attending... and I suspect I'll have the only driving GTiR on the day. :lol:

    They're doing a parade lap for any Aston Martin driver that wants to do it at lunch time.

    Just confirmed I'm available. Assuming either of you are still going I'll book tickets today. Assuming the weather is okay I can bring our foldaway table and chairs for a picnic. Let me know :)

    Pack waterproofs and a tent (to keep the rain off whilst eating)? - Last year we ate it the cars, but that was less than ideal.

    I'll buy tickets anyway and work out eating logistics closer to the time.

    Well I've missed the cut off time to order tickets, so I'll just pay on the door.

    What time are people thinking of turning up there?

    I know the driving starts for around 8:30am till 17:55

    ...which may also affect when we leave the house (and thus the arrival time)?

    Forecast hasn't got any better. - I think we can take it as read that I'll be on my own... which also means a much simpler lunch.

    I think I'll aim for ~10:00 to arrive. How does that sound?

    I have a few family duties in the morning so will likely get there around 12 to 12:30. Not ideal. I might bring Will if his Mum will let him.

    Good day out as always.


    Weather was a bit hit and miss, but mostly stayed dry and even sunny at some points

    Some photos from the day, nothing too exciting, will check my phone later and upload some from that too!
