First post has been updated Bill :thumleft:

So we have 20 cars on the track out of the 60 that are booked on the day and depending on the Tier System in place on the 4th December, there might be a few less cars there on the day :thumright:

Praying this trackday still goes ahead :pray:

Are we intending to go for something to eat afterwards? If so we may need to "coincidentally" book two parties of 6 in assuming 12 want to eat!

We are still working on the assumption this event will proceed, although the government have yet to announce what will be in place once the current restrictions end on 2 Dec.

On that basis, and thankyou for your inputs earlier, I have secured an arrangement with NickD to take 12 garages at a heavily discounted price of £20 each (£240 total, instead of £360). In addition, we have three other garages booked for exclusive use by Ranjan, Marc and George. I will ask Nick to group all theses garages together (15 in total). James will also have his freshly (cab) painted breadvan vehicle transporter, so has no need for a garage ;)

The current plan is for the 16 drivers/cars without a garage to "hot-share" 10 garages (5 pairs) to stow gear and use throughout the day. Remember the Track Operator rule is that there can only be ONE car per garage at any one time, but that could be any car. Preference can then be given to those who need to do some work on their vehicles during the day, else free to whoever wants to use them. Once the event is underway, around half our cars will be on track, so effectively giving one garage per car.

The plan is for the remaining 2 garages of the 12 will will be "taped off" for use by pedestrians only, laid out in a covid safe way, with hand sanitiser available and will provide an huge area for safe-distanced gathering, plus supply of hot/cold drinks and snacks supplied by the club. You may wish to bring a camping chair to use in this area. Hopefully, we can close the doors on one side to keep the draughts out, but have plenty of ventilation on the other side.

Nearer the time I will PM everyone without a garage/breadvantransporter to request payment of £15 to my PayPal account (16x £15 = £240). Should the day be cancelled last minute, I will, of course refund everyone.
