Will definately be going.

Just round the corner, used to work here as a host and stayed on overtime to help host the SLS GT5 competition for PH a few years ago.

Perhaps you remember me Garlick?

Many more to come I'm sure, ranging from 'what price for a coffee?' to 'why can't they take 700 cars?'
What if.......

I break down on the way to MBW, being a nice chap, I use my smartphone to take myself off of the list. However, I manage to fix the car by the side of the road and then set off for the SS, having reinstated myself.

In the meantime, the guy who has been bumped up from the reserve list and lives just around the corner from the meet, sees that he is in fact on the list now and gets past the guards helpful Haymarket staff on the gate.

Then, I turn up in my fixed car. However, the place is full and my can't fit in anywhere. I consult the list on my phone, see the problem and identify the bloke who took my place.

Can I be the one who gets to tell him to sling his hook and escorts him to the exit, so freeing my space?

Another one new to this. I've put my name down but how are we identified as being one of the 600 on the list and allowed access for parking?
Possibly a silly question and I haven't read or understood something that I should have.
Or is it as simple as,

I turn up.
Man on gate says "Who are you"
I tell him my name and number on list.
He checks list and says "Your names down, you can come in."

Job jobbed?

You know if you are in the 600 by checking what number is next to your name here: http://www.pistonheads.com/calendar/event.asp?i=30...

If you are within the 600 we'll have a note of your username on the gate, we'll ask for this when you arrive and after a quick check you'll be in.

If that happens you have to park in the adjoining county and help the caterers fry sausages.

Love MBW, and I know it gets full so I'll sit this one out and let someone have the slot I would have taken. If I feel the urge to turn up I'll park in the plebs car park.

First one I will have been to, but have been to MB world before, worth going just to dribble over the CLK GTR and E190 EVO!! Number 337 next to the name so I guess that means we're in, happy days! 1330 race mini on Yoko semi slicks if its dry, Prodrive Impreza if raining!
