Could I still gain access to the CS Stand if I buy a ticket on the gate? I've left it way to late to pre-book a ticket and space online.
Not a problem from our end as we've got a bit of spare capacity in our stand, but you'll probably need a car pass window hanger thing (can be seen in the pics higher up in this thread) to be allowed into the club area by the marshalls.

If you have issues, park in 'non club / exhibitor parking' area on the map and then come and see us in the club marquee. We can give you one of ours once we are on site and you can then move your car. We often do this every year for a few people.

Got a 3 and 3/4 hour journey to get there on Saturday, praying there’ll still be a space when I arrive ??

I had a long drive last year and got there at about half 9 ish and wasn't the last there were still 5 or 6 that came after me. You should be fine if you set off bright and breezy.

Can we drop our camping stuff off at the campsite and then come back to the stand? Clio's boots are not the best are they so it'll be up to the roof :)

I’ll be bringing my pride and joy 172, pre facelift Trophy is mine too but missus will need it during the day.
There’s me getting my hopes up to take average photos of the two ?

Turns out I got 2 exhibitor passes with my tickets. Can I park my old bus in the rejects section of the stand? What time do you need to be there if it's ok?

Thanks in advance.

I'm on 1-3pm too, gonna come off 2.50ish to try see start of footie
We could tag each other round 1st 2 or 3 laps if you like. I am certainly no expert, just pedal to the metal when I can, altho the car has got to get me home so don't redline it all the time- plenty overtake me LOL. I take my own helmet, not sure if you can hire, but its usually a tenner if they do

Last year when I took a mate on a passenger lap there was a Motorsports company who sell caterhams near the entrance, was a tenner I think, but with a £50 deposit

Donington is a track for the brave due to the speeds you can carry, but very rewarding when you get it right!

I cannot wait to get out on there in the 200 again this year. Now I’ve got brakes that’ll stop me of course! Lol

Cars all clean inside but it looks like it's going to piss it down any moment now so I'm holding off washig it. I'll probably be doing it in 30° heat tomorrow.

Got cracking with cleaning at 11, just finishing up now. Will inevitably rain tomorrow and will eat a few bugs on the way up.
Pretty much used the full arsenal today, bar proper polishing compounds, as my DA packed up

You did well from what i recall. It is too easy to thrash the Clio at Donnington, but keep sensible and its not a train home.
 

Premature Tarby!
