Surely any outstanding issues can be resolved or clarified via a conversation with Kelsey? As EC, has Will contacted them on behalf of the Club members?

I don't suppose anyone has a spare passenger ticket going. Naomi wishes to come along and I've missed the passenger tickets and appears only day admission ones are left at double the price.
Sorry, I have only just come back to the thread and I see that the event ticket system is turning into a bit of a farce!
I have a passenger ticket that I may well give up, I'm booked for 4 other events, so if I can't get my car on the stand for this event you can have it.

In your dreams perhaps , as I said in my previous post kelsey are imposible to deal with rationale
I do have a lot of experience in dealing with them and it was decided not to pursue this relationship by the club some years ago

Ok this is turning into one big Shambles.
I have 4 Passenger tickets. So would need to flag down or plan to meet two club members in cars with display tickets so we can hop in with you.
They have now said they need to be tied to a reg.
They have also said No Public parking pass = No entry. I selected it as I had to put my cars reg in to get the ticket, but my tickets show nothing about this. I cannot get a reply from them if I do or do not have parking, I'm not leaving my Volvo parked on the A43 hard shoulder.

This year is the first time ive ever had problems and its not just one, but non-stop problems. Did they change ownership or something? I'm also not seeing anything regarding Donnington this year so guessing they cancelled it.
It's just me going so I have space for 3 passengers if one can fit behind me. I come down from Derby so I can't tell if that's en route for you.

It's on the next tab down of the website. Poorly labeled (on a phone view anyway) but if you click the file looking icon below the same icon for your ticket, then it's on their to download.

Unfortunately I’m not able to attend this as I’ve not made arrangements to park the trailer and there’s no trailer spaces available.
If anyone is interested I have a stand pass, passenger pass,track pass for 16.00 and a passenger track pass.

If someone wants this and is willing to arrange the necessary name transfer details
£60 takes it.

Cancel that.

Hopefully I’ll be there if they can change my registration number in time. …..albeit in the Honda crv Image

Might as well turn up to pickup the cleaning kit, even though I’ll loose the £50 track session unless there’s a very nice person on the other end of my email reimbursing me!!!

Can I take you up on this Will? As it happens I have managed to sort out Parking very close by. Near the Tesco's at Towcester like two Junctions up the road from Silverstone.
There will be the 3 of us.

Possible the 4th may also join us but he has not made his mind up. I have told him I need to know by the morning. If this is the case maybe another member passing that way could grab him? I will know and update for sure in the morning.

We will be coming from brackley just south of Silverstone. Leaving the merc at a friend's and family jumping in before heading in. He has track booked for 10 slot though, so we're looking at heading into show for about 730. Should be relatively early to assist parking the display and set up.

[Update] My 4th member will not be joining us. Reason he gave was he's so confused and disappointed with the epic failure of planning so far and communication he's just lost interest in the whole thing.

So will be just three of us. We will be stopping in Harpole Premier Inn, leaving any time after 6am as that's when ive got my parking space booked for.
Don't know if anyone has the same hotel lol

Last year we were In an area which had parking spaces. I am not sure this year's allocation is a lined area, however they should supply sufficient space to park all 30 of cars together as an allotment.

Yep, sounds like we're already in the same place so can likely just convoy to parking then continue in the one car.

I plan to set off somewhere 6:30-7 or so, but can adjust a little later if needed.
