Just a heads up that I would like as many people as possible at this trackday to support the scattering of Ray's (Harrizone's) ashes, on the patch of ground inside Druid's corner. Permission has been sought and granted by MSV and MoT to do this during the lunch interval. Ray's family will be attending.

The rough plan is to gather in the pitlane immediately the lunch break is called, do a procession for a lap and a bit behind "Ray's" car, stopping just under the bridge on Hailwood Hill, leading up to Druids. Everyone to decamp there and walk a few yards over the the infield at Druids for the scattering. Then proceed back around the circuit to the track exit. I would expect the process to take around 20-30minutes in all, allowing some time to grab fuel and lunch before the track re-opening.

Fuller details nearer the time.

In case anyone missed Ray's passing earlier this year: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=83291

One more added to the list, SteveBishopRx8, who mentioned he was interested in going at the recent Essex Meet. I've just got an email to say he's booked a place =D>

So that's 18 places now, out of the 60 available :thumleft:

There are now less than 10 places left and I believe this popular event has ALWAYS sold out (usually much earlier than this, once it sold out in JULY :shock: ), since it started back in 2008.

If you are thinking of going, don't hesitate to book as this will sell out.

Can we match or better the current record of 20 cars that attended this event in both 2013 and 2020??

Everyone should have received one (possibly 2) emails from Nick at MSV with a link in one of the emails to register for this event with MSV.

In case anyone hasn't received it, the link you need to register is:

Done :thumleft:

Got the link and registered and need to set a reminder to watch the video 24 hours before the event.

Can I get people ideas of resources I need to bring with me on the day?

I think videoing is out.
2 x 20Lt Petrol
Appropriate oil additive for the tank
Top up of brake fluid if needed
I have a SORN so I don't need to have too much normal engine oil that would have normally been used
Helmet - Are front/split face opening helmets allowed are do they need to be full face?
Spare underpants
I booked an instructor but I would appreciate a buddy for the day to hold my hand
It took me ages to spot the ? after my name - My first name is Derek but I am not bothered with the geographic term of Geordie as that was my name for 30 years whilst serving in the Army

There are several of us going who have done Brands Hatch many times, so plenty of advice will be on hand through out the day :thumleft:
I'm happy to come out with you for a session or two (but I would prefer if you keep both hands on the steering wheel ;) )
