Good point. We also need to organise the banner, which I think Chris has after the successful appearance at Elvetham Heath.

All of the initial allocation of free tickets are now accounted for so we should have 10 cars on display.
I may be able to get some more, but I need to know soon if anyone else can make it.

Tickets posted out today.

I am booked in at the Thistle Brands Hatch for the Saturday night.
It was cheaper to book with Thistle.com and you can get a discount for prepayment.
It is by the main entrance (i.e very short walk from Clubs area -just visible bottom right of the plan I have sent out).

Thanks for the tickets Alan.
My son Luke and I are booked in the Thistle for Saturday night
so will drive down early Sat morning.

I have all the show stuff except the banner. Do I need to bring anything? Don't think so as we are outside. What about Gazebo? I have a basic one that I can bring. Thing Craig or Chris have better ones?

Looking forward to it. Hope its dry. I did 4 car events in 5 weeks all of them wet.
Cheers, Phil

Chris cannot make this one but Craig is a definite.
Gazebo useful if the summer doesn't continue.

I'll be bringing the "Winterbottom suite " (new version ) & pop-up banners, and hoping that Craig brings the logoed gazebo. At least we should have hard standing this time.

Hi Craig - I was going to camp but this years experience at the British GP has put me off for a while
