Hi Colin,

Hi all,

There seems to be enough interest in this event to book a club stand so I have done so. The chap I spoke to at Brooklands recommends turning up befroe 10. a.m. if you can and we will have our own dedicated parking area.

See you then! Imp028 Imp025 Imp009

I think you can turn up in a Princess Wedge now too if you like, they said theyve decided it is a classic after all. :?

Hi Colin,

He did ask me for an estimate and I said around seven cars. How precise our parking area size will be in comparison to this number I am not sure?

I tried that a few years ago, Chris. Estimated like you say, 7-10 cars, and they saved us a space for 4!
Hope the guy you spoke to was more switched on.

Wouldn't like to commit as not too sure.
If we do, more likely only in dad's Husky, or maybe the Marina to give the Wedges and Allegros some company :wink:

I've been considering going this year,not sure the Tiki-mobile is original or shiny enough to get passed the gate marshals at the moment.

I wouldn't worry about it being shiny. I'll be cleaning mine the day before but won't be touching it for another year.
