I've booked for the whole weekend, but have not been before...
I am thinking to bring/organise:

  1. Car
  2. Spare oil and tool-kit
  3. Fuel - Where's the nearest garage?
  4. Crash Helmet - Is this required/obligatory?
  5. Drivers Licence - Is this required/obligatory?
  6. Tent
  7. Sleeping bag
  8. Tooth brush
  9. Spare pants
  10. Beer
  11. Food (or can I eat entirely "on-site"? (See also No3))
  12. Fold-up seat
  13. Big umbrella
  14. Laptop for demonstrating the "Needles" spreadsheet

Any advice would be welcome...
Is there an official "Blyton Check-List"?

Ian

1) does help
2) ditto, but loads of people have tools
3) about five miles away
4) yes, or they have 'loners' if you forget yours
5) very important, you have to show it when you sign on (photocard bit)
6) probably a good idea - unless you aim on going to Scunthorpe to 'pull' :lol: :lol:
7) see above
8) see above
9) see above
10) yes, no on site beer sales
11) food is fine on site
12) yes
13) only to avoid sunburn from the red hot bank holiday sun (or rain)
14) er...

if you only have the paper old fashioned one, you might need to take something with your photo on as well

I'd take two sleeping bags, not in case you get lucky in Scunny, but to stop your bollox freezing off! :lol:

Food's available all day and we'll have a Saturday (early) evening meal which you can just pay for on the day (3 choices).

Jerry can of fuel and a funnel is a good idea.

Check your battery is clamped down I'd also advise,

No bare arms on track or Hawaiian shorts,

Helmet hire is £10 for the day

Passenger passes are £5 all day

Extra driver in your car is £20

Circuit instruction is £20 for 20 minutes to show you the lines and braking points (or just ask Whizzo nicely, and he'll do it for nowt!)

If you're bringing a gazebo please ensure it's pegged down properly!

:D

As Pete said
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + below information most important

Four hot water bottles. :o
40 gallon drum with plenty of pick holes to make a big fire when the hot water bottles go cold at 1am in the morning. :o
Durex if you visit sunny Scunny , that's a must, If you visit Gainsborough a couple of plastic bags to put over your head in case one bursts. :lol:
don't bring a gazebo it will blow away or get thieved by the pikeys living round the corner. :o
you won't need a fridge for your lager because it does not get above 32 Fahrenheit that is not Celsius. :cry:
As Mark say's it's always dark and cold up north. : :o
Other than the above you will have a great time. :D :lol: :D :lol: ;) ;)
