To just clarify Chris' post there aren't visitor passes at Snetterton, but that's because anyone was free to enter and roam whenever.

So getting someone to put you down as their passenger on their booking is now your only way in if you're not driving Smutty. And passengers have to be paid for.
Oh my goodness, I'm not expecting or looking for a freebie. I'm more than happy to pay my way - I just think it would be fab to meet up with RX8 folk and put names/faces to user names. I was thinking of trying to get to Brands but it is about 90 minutes from home and I have clients at 4pm and don't want to risk letting them down by being stuck in M25/M11 traffic.

I'll see what Nick advises when he replies to my email and take it from there. If I need to piggyback someone's ticket I hope an obliging member of the club might help out if I BACS or PayPal the funds first.
i can add you to mine if that's easier :thumright:

Cheers, Pete. That would be great. Do you want me to slip you a tenner in the privacy of your truck or pop you a friendly payment via PayPal?

I'm very tempted by this, but it may depend on how my rebuild in Jan/Feb goes as my 8 is still in pieces... If nothing else gives me a target to aim for.

I've booked this and will also book the hotel for Friday night. I haven't booked a garage, but will happily share with someone else if that's acceptable at the time.

Happy for you to share my garage if it's permitted. If not, you can at least use it to safely store your gear.

Not bad, 11 cars booked so far =D>

So, having taken stock of my car being in pieces and my ongoing health I have regrettably emailed Nick today cancelling my booking for this track day. My second angioplasty I guess will be late February so being fully fit by 6th March is unlikely. It’s annoying as this is set to be a great day but there is a possible silver lining for someone as my booking at the Premier Inn on the Friday and Sat nights is non refundable if cancelled so it’s up for grabs gents.
