Great stuff.

Hopefully Nick would have already labelled the independent garages at either the end or beginning of the clubs garages

^Yep, I've confirmed with NickD that he has the names for the 4 "independent" garages and he will group them with the block of 10.

Hi

I am hoping someone will have a jack I could borrow, mine is at my mates lock up and not sure if I can get it.

Just need it to do a comp test and maybe change tires. I will bring a couple of axle stands.

Bringing mine too ;)

A few bits of information and reminders as the day gets closer:

We have garages 9 through 22, so roughly in the middle of the set of garages. That's 14 garages.

Taking into account those who will be sharing a garage, or have one for their exclusive use (or have a breadvan RV Truck), there will be 9 cars using the remaining 7 garages. Those who are not sharing can simply grab a garage and unload your gear into it. If unsure, see Nigel or I on the day, we aim to arrive 7.15-7.30am. Those 9 garages will be "hot" shares throughout the day for those who need them to work on their cars, or simply to park in, if you see one free. Don't get all possessive, you are only paying £15 for 7/9ths of a garage ;) :lol:

REMEMBER:
Only ONE CAR PARKED in a garage at any one time
There must NOT be groups of MORE THAN 6 congregating (Tier 3 rules)

Nigel has 48 bottle of water for people to use on the day (they expire in January, so any left can be taken at the end of the day). There will be a table in one of the middle garages with the bottles. Simply grab one as needed, but don't congregate there please ;)

DON'T forget:
Ensure you have SIGNED ON ONLINE NOW, if not already (links in posts up above)
Watch the SAFETY BRIEFING online tomorrow
Bring a MASK, to use when inside and collecting your wristband
Bring your DRIVER's LICENSE
Bring your HELMET
Bring WARM & WATERPROOF CLOTHING - current forecast is pretty dire!

I'm sure I've missed some things in that list, but I'll let Nigel add anything he can think of.

Last of all, have a safe and fun day :thumleft:

Briefing completed!

Although it suggests that noise level will be monitored on track and if flagged up will have to conduct a static sound test.

So I guess no test is required beforehand unless I'm mistaken?

If any of you guys have a C-spanner to adjust coilovers would you be kind enough to bring it as I forgot to pack one and I am now in London and the car is in Birmingham.
Thank you.

Ranjan.

^I'll have a pair of C Spanners (Tien) with me Ranjan - I assume they are standard size??

@Marc: Really weird, I was just listening to that noise part of the briefing when I saw your post. It does seem to suggest no static test, but I'd be very surprised if MSV skipped the static test, so allow time for it to be done.

I will still allow time just incase a static test is required.

I'm just packing the car now and im going to pack my track tyres but I very much doubt that they will be needed with this weather, but at least it will save having to swap tyres over :thumleft:

Yes I also noticed the lack of a static test in the briefing.

Have timings for the day been published? I don't recall seeing them anywhere.

I've just driven the car for the first time in 3 weeks, to get some fuel, and didn't find driving to be a bother. Will see if that's still the case after a whole day in the car tomorrow, but my knee has been gradually improving even if it is far from fully recovered.

Weather forecasts still changing regularly. Despite the hourly forecast looking miserable, there does appear to be some hope for the afternoon when looking at the maps, which suggest that the main band of rain will have moved north of the circuit by lunchtime. It'll never dry out mind.

I decided not to pack the semi-slicks as the ambient temperature is so low I will never get any heat into them, plus the track is never going to dry out.
After Cadwell last year will not be doing that again.
