We'll be there. Heading over *EARLY* to get a decent seat near Quarry. If its sunny the locals will ALL go (24,000 last year!!! Bigger (?) than TOCA!) so it does to be there and ensconced on the bank before there's no chance of plonking yer chair down.

Anyone heading over Bristol way, then?

Hi -- We're going, too. Never been to CC before, so where's the best place to watch? Park? etc.

I'll be there all weekend. As I'm manning the truck I guess I'll be down at Tower.

Don be warned, if you like taking photos' as they have erected a new safety net at quarry. The best thing to do is move a little further round onto the next bank at the start of Farm straight. You get a great elevated view with no nets.

I believe there will be a TVR specific car park, which last year was near Tower corner, so I'm guessing it will be the same this year.

The combe is now a pretty good spectator circuit so Tower, Camp and Quarry are all good, Quarry being the most difficult hence the most... err... dramatic.

Funky,
Tickets are 6 on Sat for the qualifying and 16!! on sunday for the racing, or a 2 day pass costs 20.

Jeff,
The the combe fixtures list has a fairly long list of B+B's, email me you fax no. and I'll fax you a copy... or you could always camp with the rest of us

Cheers Dan

I'll be there, but the SEAC may not make it. Arrived back from Le Mans at 4am this morning. Engine literally died as I pulled up outside my house and it had to be pushed into the driveway. Multiple other problems including a hole in the radiator hose and illegal tread depth on the rear tyres

Much thanks to the Dorset mob who attacked my engine bay at 2am in Poole and got me going again.

So if you see a little red 205 tucked at the back of the TVR parking, that will probably be me......

I'm going on Sunday - first time at CC for me. I phoned the circuit today to check if there was any reserved TVR parking and they told me to follow signs to the Skid Pan where an area would be marked for TVRs.
