I plan to leave Cheltenham and go A40 to Oxford, A34 to M40 to A43 to Silverstone. No Oxford commuter traffic at that time on a Saturday hopefully.
Could have a rendezvous at Oxford Pear Tree Park & Ride leaving there at 7am if anyone is game, Silverstone ETA 7:45 ish
Alternatively a popular rendezvous point is the BP Station just East of Brackley but it can be busy.
Times can be changed to earlier of course but no later so we can hopefully be on the stand by 8am

Not sure anyone is coming my way - pretty much straight down the A45 from Peterborough - but would be happy to jump on a convoy if anyone is nearby :thumright:

Plan is to leave just after 6-6.30 to get there for 7.30-8

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.

Definitely a good option. Let’s see what the responses are like over the next week or so and can then firm up a location and time.
Nigel, what time are we expected to arrive to be able to get onto the stand?

There will be no Events Team on the Club Stand, however there are two Committee Members present on the day :thumleft:

According to Kelsey Website the gates open at 7am, so you will all need to make sure you're parked on the club stand by 9.30am at the latest :roll: , we recommend you all getting there as early as possible because Kelsey's organisation can be a bit hap hazard sometimes :!:

Hope you all have a good day and look forward to seeing all the photo's of the day :thumleft:

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
Soft drinks
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.

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.

Just had an email with our stand pass!

We will be jumping on the M1 at Leicester, McDonald’s at Watford gap and hopefully arriving around 8-830. Purely depending how long it takes to prize my daughter out of bed.

For those interested:

We're not far away from RX-8 Familia and Mazda Society - which is awesome. We are in section 8, which is a big tarmac'd section right in the middle of everything, so a really great spot!
