To keep it simple how about meeting at Cherwell Valley Services ready for a 7:15 departure which should get us to Silverstone by 8:00am allowing for traffic. Joe Public will be using different routes to the car parks so traffic should move pretty well at the circuit.
Please post up here if you intend to join this rendezvous and the first post will be updated.
So that’s me confirmed plus;

Shout out if I have missed you!!!!!!
Yeh that’s a bit too keen for me especially if it isn’t a big group, will just come straight to the circuit for about 8:30

Thought it was about time I scratched my itch, or rather aching need to drive the car on track with the SC fitted as the only I haven’t had it on track since fitting the poly bushes and supercharger so I have just booked for the 16:40 track session to round off the day!!

Should I be concerned that I have no email regarding stand location or pass?

EDIT: Scratch that, I found it in the Junk folder, it had arrived in Thursday last week!

I believe so yes, as that's where your ticket/pass is and it's tagged to your reg that you entered upon purchase :-k spam/junk folders?

I got my email from shows@kelsey.co.uk, so worth searching your inbox for that.

Apparently they are using ANPR technology for checking car registrations against those registered for passes? No match equals off to the public car park!

Think the ANPR system is already in place from what I remember of the last time I was at silverstone with Volvo, so not just for the show. Saves a lot of messing around for the staff and should make things a bit quicker on arrival - in theory 🤔

@Will66 and @rexxy1988

Apologies if you are already “on the case” but don’t forget to print off your paper driving licence counterpart which Kelsey say they require you to take. It’s a farcical condition which they claim is mandatory yet when signing on previously people were being allowed to sign on claiming they didn’t know they needed the paper section as well as the photo card!
PLUSThere is also an Indemnity Form and a Track Time Check List to print and sign!

I had forgotten somehow what a pain it is to do track time at a Kelsey show with all their forms requirements.

I just received another reminder email with my track time pass attached. Their system certainly likes sending reminders!

This is the email you should have received by now for track time

Am happy for you to bill the club for Bacon and Sausage Rolls Chris :thumleft:

Events Team
Hang on, I wasn’t offering to do the catering! I presumed that the usual breakfast rolls on an official club show stand was all being arranged by the events team.
Hey ho! I had better get some shopping done then as below with your blessing Nigel. Surplus can be held by me until JDM Castle Combe.

Bacon
sausages
Burgers
Onions
Rolls
Nibbles
Coffee
Milk
Sugar
Water
Plastic cups & spoons
Gas
and hopefully I can fit the gazebo et al in the car!
I have a camping stove and kettle plus the clubs pump thermos flasks but no tables so someone please bring a couple with you.
You will need your own chair too.
I think that’s it unless somebody has a special requirement.
DO NOT BRING FOOD OTHER THAN CAKES OR SOFT DRINKS

The food supplies above have been ordered including 48 bread rolls so you had all better be hungry for breakfast and lunch.
Kathy’s scones will be baked tomorrow

Slight problem finding any gas in stock anywhere so if anyone has any long type push connect gas cylinders you can potentially save the day if I cannot get any tomorrow!

Before I book a regular folk pass is there anything I should do? (discount codes etc)

They still have display your car tickets, should I get one of them and sneak into the club stand?

You would need the club booking code to definitely get on the stand so you could maybe try that first and if that doesn’t work then get the display one and convoy in with us from Cherwell Valley hoping that they won’t notice your car has the incorrect hanger.
If your car registration is not on their system they will send you to the public car park and you won’t get into the actual show area until the gates open at 10am!
