Asked me to post this one (he also said when home that a seperate BTCC events Forum will be started).

Anybody going - why not swop your mobiles using the PM message system and do a ZED/MG convoy into the circuit? Or meet in the circuit. Pictures please!

Sorry for ignorance, but do you need to get tickets beforehand??

Tickets at gate on race day, last year qulifying day was free, only race did you pay (£20-25) Pree booked tickets do earn a discount I think..

At the moment I'm on my way from HKG to Dubai at the time of the Brands event. I have just requested leave for some of the events and Le Mans. Will attend those that I'm here for - last year made the last 3 without leave - just need a little luck. :D

I'm sure that Kevin Neal will be along with Kelvin.

Looks as if I may be able to go.
Unfortunately though I will only be able to get for one of the days.
Does anyone know which would be best? Sunday?

John/Max Which day I hear you say - the day they stand on the podium!

Take a look at http://www.tocatour.co.uk/

Here's part of Mondays schedule so it must be MONDAY guys & gels (the following programme has been edited).

12.00 - 12.40 Pits Walkabout/Autograph Session

12.00 – 12.10 MG XPower Precision Driving Team - featuring Terry Grant and Trudy Thompson

13.00 - MSA British Touring Car Championship – Sprint Race

13.55 Michelin Porsche Cup

14.55 The BRDC British Formula 3 Championship with Avon Tyres

15.45 Elf Clio RENAULTSport UK Cup 12

16.30 MSA British Touring Car Championship – Feature Race

17.30 World Sports Car Invitation Trophy – Endurance Race

Max & I will be there - obviously car parking is in the lap of the gods - we will be in the EVO I guess.

However, for those that wish to say hello - we can either arrange to meet somewhere. Or mail Max using the PM system and we will give you her moby #?

I already have Kevin (N's) & Kelvisn & I know that these stalwarts will be there :D

Monday it is then.
It willmean an early start, but should be worth it.
Hope that the traffic isn't too heavy (it will be a bank holiday).

JLD Don't worry about traffic think of the great day you will have. It will be nice to put faces to names looking forward to a day at the races:p

Hopefully not much traffic at the hour that I'm intending setting off. I'm hoping to get to Brands before the program starts - I can always have a quick snooze when I get there, or share the driving with Elaine. probably going to give the ZR a good run.

We're not available to go unfortunately - we're up in the Peak District/Alton Towers for the Easter weekend, otherwise we'd definitely be going :(

Promised my son we'd take him to Storybook Land! (He's only 10 months old!)

We'll look forward to seeing you at another event soon though - we're hoping to attend more than we did last year...:)

You are going to miss a great couple of races. Plus the "World Sports Car Invitation Trophy – Endurance Race" should be good too.

Jerry has my mobile, but if anyone that is going wants it in paticular then PM me!

I tend to spend a lot of time trackside, at various spots around the circuit! The main feature race I tend to be faily close to pit lane or paddock hill, as when the trophies are presented, so I dont have too far to run!! (a problem for me :D)

I think I will be out near Dingle Dell for most of the practice and qualifying sessions, they tend to drive as hard if not harder, so I can lots of shots of cars.

Kelvin

BTW. I am there from Sat right thru the weekend!
