Its been some time since I’ve been on here! Life has been a bit manic to say the least. Unfortunately I am no longer the owner of my lovely MK4 Cortina as she has moved on to another loving owner.
My question is…… I now have a boringly practical E46 330D but still want to pop on down with the Mrs again. Can I come to the whole weekend including the camping and hide this modern beast behind the tent? Also its well past the 1990 cut off date but it might be quite interesting to take her up the hill to see what it can do, are cars this modern allowed up the hill?
thats fair enough. I wish I still had the cortina but she needed to go. Sad times indeed. A mate of mine does have a minter of a camper so I'll see if he can bring that along instead of the E46. Otherwise I'll keep the modern hidden in the camping/parking field. A retro will be with me soon but don't think it'll be before the gathering. One can hope!

Someone posted earlier about needing advance notice of people turning up with trailers... are we just talking large stuff here, I was thinking about bringing the trailer tent this time is alll... And are there still more weekend tickets available?
Trailer tent is fine as it will be in the campsite (and stay there) We need to organise trailered cars into the venue itself. Its something of a logistical nightmare when people arrive so its important we know who we are expecting (on a trailer) and where their entrance point will be.
Weekend tickets are still available but selling out very fast.
I'm hoping to get to this one if I can finish my car in time. its a gx81 toyota mkII with a ls400 v8 fitted, the car is a 1991 so would this be elegable to run the climb? I really want to take a car up the hill but if I cant run my car the trip would be dissapointing, the back up car is a 1996 honda civic but I'm gussing this would be relegated to the car park and not allowed to run?
I imagine the cut-off date applies to the original release date for that shape Toyota (late 80s for a Mk2 probably?). Likewise, classic Minis on late plates would probably be allowed up, whereas Mk5 Golfs etc wouldn't.

Basically, bring Drivers License, MoT and Insurance. That makes it nice and easy for the girls on the desk.
Track tickets are sold on the day, and they do go quick. We are looking into selling the am tickets before releasing the pm tickets this year though, so that should spread it out a little bit more.
You track ticket is for a session. So you get as many runs as you want/can fit in during that session. I think for most people it was between 3 and 5 last year.
TO EVERYBODY - If you are thinking of bringing a car on a trailer we really need to know in advance. We only have a certain space for cars on trailers, plus they need to enter at a differenct entrance, so it is a real logistical nightmare if people start turning up out the blue with cars on trailers.
Got a track car? No MoT etc? We wanna hear from you BEFORE the event to go through everything. If you rock up on the day with a track car and expect to play up the hill you might well end up disappointed.

Got 10 cars/people for a Mk1 Fiesta stand now. There are 2 more people that are still not sure what they are doing though. If I book a stand for 10 cars is it possible to add extra people afterwards once they have decided what to do?
