Am thinking of going next saturday as i've never been before.

Any of you thinking about going along ? I know Nick W has said he might go along, just wondered if anyone else is up for it ?

Cheers,
Daz

Possibly...

It's supposed to be a fantastic day out - not sure if I'm going to be free or not (allowed to go out) - ball and chain and all that.

I've been going for the last couple of years and its definately worth going, at no other event in the world can you get so close to the most historic cars ever raced, not to mention the drivers. Le mans, F1 (including 2002 f1's this year), Rally (more BHP than Rupert), you name it, its there, and they all race up the hill flat out.

Friday and Saturday is tickets at the gate, Sunday is ticket only.

It's a must!

I'm a possible too Daz, am working saturday night and am out all day sunday, so depending on how tired I feel, I might be down there.;)

Well worth it if you like any sort of motor racing, some of the cars are priceless and the quality of the drivers there is second to none.

But if anyone is planning on going , get there early or get stuck in traffic! I live in Horsham which is about 30/40 mins away and I will get there for 7am at the latest. :(

I'll be there on Friday and Saturday. It's my fifth year in a row and I cannot recommend it enough.

If possible try to go on Friday. It's not as crowded and you can chat to owners/teams/mechanics while they unload and check their cars.

I'm definitely going :)

Not sure which day yet though.

I thought Sunday was the main day that everyone raced up the hill ?

Is Saturday a qualifying type day or do they just race all weekend ?

Sunday is the day that they take the official times, but you will not notice the cars going up the hill any slower on the sarturday, when racing drivers get behind the wheel they just have to go fast!:D

ATS have told me that they would love to say Hi and hopefully sell you a set of tyres,ask for the "Henry" discount:eek:

Henry,

A purple R33 next to a blue R34, should look good.

I think you'll find its over 1300bhp (635bhp + 672bhp).....!

I suppose I'll have to clean my car then, must be time for another upgrade, as thats how I usually get it washed.......

Hi - yes I plan to go ( probably Saturday) - have been for the the last few years and it is a great day out if you love the smell of burning rubber :eek:

I also live in Horsham and hope to leave early as the traffic can be a bit of a pig.... although a trick I have used is the past is to go past the exit from the dual carriageway (A27) and the do a 180 @ the next roundabout and approach from the other direction (i.e. heading east)......

Hopefully see you guys there ! :cool:

Gary - Cheeky bugger! But seriously, thanks for your help at Bedford in overcoming the starting problem.

Nick - The cars will be there all weekend, but we won't be. They want the cars on the stand, not Henry's and my ugly faces....!
