I'll be there, certainly in one of the cars below. I know which one I would pick as my favourite, but that might not be possible!

I intend to stop over, yes. There are several hotel options within about 10 minutes drive of the circuit. It's a bank holiday weekend, so I don't have to rush back on the Sunday! :party:
