guys,

does anybody know if it is possible to take your ferrari on to the bank inside the circuit, or if you can park in the circuit enclosure.

the only tickets i can buy in advance seem to be general admission!

Does anybody know the score, or went last year etc?

Benno - are you getting your tickets from the FOC or are you getting them from OctagonMotorsports? And how's that Tubi sounding after Le Mans?
The FOC do the hospitality package but I haven;t looked into it enough...

BTW Guys - Cottesbrooke Hall is looking increasingly difficult - things are a little heavy at my end.....But I am going to try my damnest to go to this....

Who's going where?

I went last year, great day out, good motorsport only spoilt by the fact that my 2yr old daughter lost Fizz from the Tweenies round the back of the circuit, cost me a lot of fairground rides and ice creams!!! - highlight of the day wasn't the Ferraris but the 70s and 80s Formula 1 cars especially Martin Stretton in the 6 wheel Tyrell.

There seemed to be some parking along Chapman Way (where the TVRCC usually park for the Tuscans) for FOC but general admission only got you a space in an outside car park - so I would contact the FOC or one of the Ferrari owners clubs (or MHT) to see how you get in the circuit.

It was very popular, I went on the Saturday and I reckon that there were 15-20 thousand spectators, Sunday was apparently double that number, plenty of opportunity for sticky fingers and the oiks of Kent to admire your car.

On the Sunday Last year they allocated a whole field behind the main straight for Ferrari parking. There must have been 200+ cars. No special ticket required, just head for the main gate and they will direct you. Your dealer ( Maranello's in my case ) may also offer you the hospitality package which I think from memory was 80 per person last year. This included meals/drink and special parking - waste of money if you ask me.

If I am right its the Concours meeting on the 29th June for the Ferrari Owners Club. You need to be a member. I should be going and its my first time () and I am reliable informed that it is usually well attended and a good event.

Location is here www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=europemac&X=470000&Y=270000&scale=200000&width=700&height=400&gride=471085&gridn=273976&coordsys=gb&db=pc&overviewmap=&scale=100000 Should be LOTS of Ferrari there.

Can't remember what time it starts, though I think it was covered in one of the FOC newsletters. It's either 10 or 11am I think. We're going to bring a picnic rather than do the formal buffet bollox. There is a bar there and they've got a big screen for the football, which is either a brilliant thing or bloody awful, depending on your point of view.

If you see a stressed bloke hauling kids out of a red 456, come over and say hello!

Cheers

Just to a quick note to say that for the FOC meeting tomorrow anyone coming from London or thereabouts can join a convoy at Scratchwood services on the M1 at 9.30am. I think the convoy is leaving at 10.00am sharp so don't leave it too late.
