This is looking more and more likely for me so far. I should know better tomorrow but won't know for sure until Friday. I will be needing garage use if it's possible as I have oil to change and a load of tools and spares including tyres and a girlfriend to keep out of the weather, haha. Is there split garage space?
Can I pay for this via paypal gift still if i find out on Friday if i can make it?

If i get back from work early enough friday we will be going to Birmingham for a gig Friday night then travelling up from there. This is unlikely though so if not is anyone travelling down from the North? We'd be coming from Newcastle.

Sweet, Chopper booked off this rig for this evening, back home tomorrow, hopefully in the morning, then i will have time to change oil & filter and fit new guages at home so less spares to bring. Gunna book a hotel in Birmingham once I get off the chopper. Yey! Super excited now!

For you guys who've been here before, are you getting track insurance? I don't normally but i know the tracks i've been on and on them i couldn't manage enough damage to make it worthwhile paying a fortune for insurance (either long run-offs or slow corners so repairs would be under excess anyway).
What company do yous use if you do get coverage?

I never bother with track insurance my self.
I have had dealings with competition car insurance for many years who give you 5 track days per year free which covers the cost of most peoples insurance for the year alone. Have a chat with me on Sat
Your unlikely to hit anything on this track but there is a lot of gravel traps which can give you a nasty rash
See you Sat
Any more last minute takers

Gunna book a hotel in Birmingham Birmingham is the wrong place to book a hotel. Look at Derby or Nottingham or even East Midlands airport which is next to the track. Plus the surrounding area has quite a few B&Bs good to have a Geordie attending.once I get off the chopper. Yey! Super excited now!

Yeah Conan, someone just recommended them to me in another thread. I may cancel my AF policy actually and take one out with Competition if the price is ok.


Chris, I've booked a hotel in Birmingham as there's a gig on there tomorrow night that we wanna go to.
It's like a week long tour for Skindred, Crossfaith, Hed PE and Yashin and I'm a massive fan of both Yashin and Crossfaith. I bought tickets for their gig in Newcastle and there was like 8 of us going and i'd been looking forward to it for like 6 months then I got called to this job i'm on now. I missed the Newcastle show but can still catch them in Birmingham on Friday night. Just turns out lucky that it's near the track.

Looking at the forecast I recon it looks like damp/wet

Going to be tricky!

Brolly, waterproofs, wellies chance of shoes working on inverse logic that if I take them I won't need them,but then;
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Windy on Saturday with rain soon arriving, possibly heavy at times. Very windy but milder with further rain on Sunday. Probably becoming drier and brighter on Monday.

Hey ho, I predict some interesting manoeuvres
