If ur vanning it up and have space - a chair !!! lots of sitting around time - when i went to a few TDs last year - i really wanted to have a good sit down - and not on the floor LOL - failing that - seems like most of the other suggestions are sensible - take a track pump too if u have one - cant remember if anyone mentioned it already - have fun - stay safe

Yep, AA charged me £105 to come and collect but that was only cos I didn't have accident recovery on my policy - if I had got accident recovery then recovery from the track would have been no problem - they'll fetch you from anywhere.

However, they may have forgotten to actually ever charge me for it

Anyone mentioned a couple of jerry cans of fuel? If you're vanning it you may as well, saves going out at lunch if you're a bit low.

I'll do some timing for peeps too and time someone in the fast group so you can compare if anyone's interested?

Its Corby, that is all. Phil has my instructions for the van Kate.

And before you ask, no, you cannot be locked in it overnight with the gaffer tape and cable ties with him!

Looked at the holiday inn but figured I'd be too knackered to make use of the fitness centre and being on me tod it was an extra 25quid.

No one will steal the Rat - spose I might take the keys out of it though...

Menu looks good - might give the BYOB Nightclub a miss though...

the BYOB is a must - How can you go to the Ravern and not partake!! Well you know where we are if you need to escape.

And as for being locked in the van with gaffa tape and cable ties - that hadn't even crossed my mind!!! Im sure Phil would oblige but only if he could leave me in there!
