you do not have to do the trackday, you are more than welcome to come and watch for FREE or pay to come out as a passenger (cost is just to cover you with brands insurance).
this will be a good chance to get to a meet and out of the house.:lol:

I might be interested if I can get the Friday off work, but I don't think I'd stay overnight on the Sat, probably just drive back home after the track events are done with.

The only thing that bothers me is that the weather in January could be a bit of a lottery!!

P.s.

As tempted as i am im going to do the sensible thing and rule myself out of this one Rich. With it being just after christmas and same month as insurance renewal funds arent going to allow.

Im looking forward to the VXR power events being announce next year though, i want to go to a few of them :D

Go on then, put me down as a "probably yes". I've just e-mailed Tony G with some questions I have (like what happens if it's cancelled on the day due to the weather), and all being well I'll book/pay on Monday.

Has anyone looked at room availability at nearby hotels?

I don't think I've actually met anyone on the BBQ thread yet so yeah, I tend to shy away as you lot all know each other so well.

After your suggestion I did think about posting something nearer the weekend, but now you've done it for me :)

And it looks like a few of us will be coming along. Shame that the SE section of VXRO are doing a Hindhead Tunnel Run that day, or I'm sure some of them would have come along. :(
