We have been allocated 5 stands and these can be seen on the sheet you will have received with your passes.
Whilst 5 stand numbers are shown on the layout all our passes will probably carry the same number.
Whether your going on track or not please look for the parking marshals when you arrive and you will be directed to the relevant area of the stands to park. When you return from a track session please try to park in the same spot.
Bacon rolls and tea/coffee will be available from 7:30 onwards and throughout the day but after the breakfast "run" it will most likely be self catering. Soft drinks and snacks will also be available all day and finally one very important request.

Bring home baked cakes please

This is why Quarry has it’s reputation as one of the most dangerous corners in the UK. Little food for thought for next week :lol:

I'll start looking at the fuel prices this week but Sainsbury's super (best offer in town) was at £1.249 last week.

fuel has gone up to £1.259

also please be aware that there are roadworks currently going on on the A350 with a 40 restriction in place and there is also a ramp when heading northbound so take care on your way out if you are "#stance nation"

as you approach Chippenham heading southbound from the M4 you want to be in the right hand lane for the first roundabout (at the BP garage) as the next section is set up so at the roundabout the left hand lane is left only with the right hand lane for straight on and turn right, it is from here you enter the roadworks. though be careful as there are still quite a few who don't adhere to the signage and it can get particularly tricky as there is no longer a merge at the southbound exit to the second roundabout.

Collected my passes etc: and all the exclusive RX8OC track session passes from the circuit today and had a look at the area we have been allocated.
M5 which likely as not shows on all you passes also happens to be the route for spectators from the road to the end of the embankment therefore please follow the parking marshalls instructions and do not park to the embankment (left) side of M5.

Cars that are going on track should be parked along the road edge of the stands and reversed in, there should be room to leave a meter each side the cars. Again, please follow the guidance of the parking marshalls.

Parking Marshalls? do I hear you ask? I forgot to ask for volunteers for this role which can be like herding blind wilful cats, no intention to offend anyone by the way! So if you have a Hi Vis, or even if not then please turn up at 6:30 latest to guide members regarding parking as they arrive.

No burger vans in the area M5 & M6 has been confirmed to me today whilst I was at the track and a roped off access lane to the embankment has been requested so all is now in place for a fantastic day. Well once I clear Morrisons out of rolls and bacon tomorrow it will be!

Wayne, many thanks for the offer to have jackets logoed but it's probably too close to sort by Saturday, unless someone reading this can sort something for you directly.
Malcolm, that would be great, I have witnessed your excellent parking marshal skills!
