Blimey that did sell out fast!
As Christine says, check out next year to see if there's a bunch more tickets without the early bird benefits.

The early bird option seems to have succeeded in selling the entire ticket supply. Unless the promoters can negotiate more display space with the circuit then there won’t be anymore tickets.
See Harry’s clip above for confirmation of this.

Yeah this is a royal pain in the A*%$. Booked and paid for two Car pass, plus 2 Passenger. Also booked hotel.

Turns out payment only went through for Hotel, but not tickets. So now £50 out of pocket for a hotel to a event I cant get tickets for.

Edit: I can get tickets to walk in, but now £28 per person, and have to park outside.
can you have too many cars? :thumright:

I'm sure nearer the time we can look at getting people in via passenger tickets in non-full cars. There is usually a few people running solo that can offer space to come in on stand as pax.

If members buy standard show tickets and walk in, I assume they are welcome to drop on to our stand and indulge in the freebies??

I believe Chris is referring to the cleaning kit that came with the earlybird ticket pricing... As per always if members can't get on the club stand theyre welcome to come via general admission.

Hopefully we see more tickets appear in the new year.

He likely had bought the tickets previously and had only just updated on the Forum Sean. The tickets are definitely all gone.

I don't know, Carl and Dave who are joining us with their GR yaris, were on the GR OC stand last year. I went to see them and they were 3 deep and a huge line. There must of been 60+ last year of those.

I don't believe so, that's just a breaker gap between those who were able to pay for tickets and those that didn't get chance before it was full. It would be down to Japfest releasing more spaces as to whether you can get them from source.
