This did happen early on when they first released the tickets for sale back when I was trying to book - no option to book a car onto a club stand. Whether it's influx of people or they've just temporarily removed the option? I haven't seen an announcement for it being sold out, and that would be a short time for 20% of the tickets to go! :-k :^o

The option was restored within a day last time, but I can't be certain by any means what's happening. Only hope is to keep checking :?

It also seems that same 80% sold post has a lot of other people asking the same question @ Japfest, so it's not just us lot! [-o<

Gates open at 7am
You don't need to be there before 9am .( don't leave it later ) as the stand has to be ready for 10am
Gates open to the public at 10am

Keep an eye out Sean etc; as I understand the organisers are talking with the circuit trying to arrange more space so there could be a further tranche of tickets available.

I'd disagree here - main roads, yes - totally avoid...
But my 'secret' reliable quick way in is the back-road's from Buckingham / Stowe / Dadford which lands in the roundabout next to West parking entrance (for race events)... (there, cat's ort of the bag!)
Next RB is the main entrance...
However I do recall for Japfest they don't let you turn in there and take you all the way back to A43 and back down to main entrance for Japfest?
Could always aim up A413 from Buckingham and join main Q from A43 in that case?

I would not be at all surprised if more tickets are available in January, after the early bird promo has ended

I'm sure that's what normally happens
