Malcolm,

If you just need one more name put me down as a definite booking; I will only know whether I can make it for sure a couple of days before the event.

That's very good of you Ranjan, but it wouldn't be fair do that! If we miss the 10% discount then so be it, it wouldn't be the end of the world ;)

Hopefully, someone will pop up anyway as we've still got over 3 weeks to go :thumleft:

Guys,

I have been told that the warranty on the rebuild insists that I do 2000 miles before I can participate on a track day :thatsucks:

So I have decided to turn up for the track day as a spectator and put some miles on the Rex. I have had a planned route made up for me leaving Birmingham Airport using only B-roads to the circuit going cross country; journey time 5 hours 15 minutes.
I will bring some biscuits and cakes.

Ranjan.

Ranjan, Sucks you can't track day, but at lest you get to have fun with the B-roads.
Do you always fly back in to the same airport as the one from which you last left the UK, or do you have trusted folks to shift the right car to the right place for you?

Alan,

There is no standard schedule, I can land anywhere and leave from whatever airport happens to be closest to me. The car is usually air-freighted to where I am landing and picked up from where I left it.

@Ranjan - excellent, I look forward to seeing you. Shame your car won't be run-in on time, but be good to see you and the car again :thumleft:

@Nigel - understood, hope it goes well my friend.

@everyone - I've been in communication with Stuart at MSVT and he's kindly agreed to let us have the discount of 10% and 2 garages, even though we've only got a group of 4 for this event (normally needs 5 for a group discount). It's one advantage of being "regulars" with MSVT :D Payments are likely to be taken from credit cards on Monday.

FOOD! - So, as we are getting closer to the date, can people let me know who like to stay for "apres trackday" food at the Angel Inn, Larling, just down the road from the circuit?

Only 2 days to go :D

Everyone who has booked a track place should have received an email from MSV with details of the day, a copy of the Registration Form (available on the day anyway) and a "Summary of Requirements". In case you haven't received the email, I have attached the key docs here.
Summary of requirements - Copy.pdf
(121.59 KiB) Downloaded 4 times
I have now booked a table at the Angel Inn, Larling, for 6pm, for post trackday food :D

https://www.angel-larling.co.uk/

Weather forecast is looking good, dry, warm with fair breeze:

I've yet to receive the garage plan, but we ought to have a pair of garages between the four cars we are taking on track. I aim to arrive about 7.15am to set up the refreshments table and unload my gear.

I should have enough mugs/cups, but if you can remember to bring one of your own, that will help :thumleft:

Any final questions, just post up here, else I'll look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday :D

Are they staying for food after though? Not a problem, but I'll need to up the table booking, so let me know.

That looks like the BBC forecast Malcolm, if you look at the Met Office one it tells a different story with a 40/60% chance of rain between 13.00 and 15.00 :evil: . Lets hope yours is correct [-o< .

Snetterton is fun in the rain :lol:

Just don't want to have to bring 2nd set of wheels. Can soneone please confirm Toyo R888's are drivable in light rain / damp conditions, if so I think I sould be ok even with Met Office forecast.

Cheers,

I wouldn't run them on a wet/damp winters day, but this time of year you should be fine as the track should dry fairly quickly and it looks like a mostly warm/fine day.

Take it easy if you have them on while it's actually rain though, that would be a good time for a snack and loo break.
