What are our thoughts guys? I’m not sure how busy it will be getting in and don’t really want to miss lots of runs. Try to meet up at 8-815 at that car park?

I've been to each event so far. Each time we have aimed to be there about 8:00/8:30 ish and it's always been quiet at that time with no queue at all. The majority of spectators arrive late morning/early afternoon when it gets quite busy.
So an 8:00 meetup would be plenty early enough in my opinion - but as already said, it depends on what those coming from farther afield think. The same cars will go up in the morning and afternoon so anyone that's later will get chance to see them all

I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going

If you already have pre-booked tickets one of us can probably sell them for you in the car park. There are always spectators that aren't pre-paid and happy to buy a discounted ticket. I've done this plenty of times at Prescott etc when people have had to back out

Blimey, that doesn't sound good. I hope there's no serious damage
