My final instructions have just landed.

Can all track participants make sure that they complete the online registration & safety briefing before attending.

Full details are in the mail you will soon be receiving from Javelin.

Never having made it to a Blyton yet (and this year will be no different unfortunately)....
Is there likely to be any Minis up for sale there? A friend is looking for something (wanted post going up later) and thought it might be worth popping along to look if there were.

Just a quick heads up about paddock parking. Due to the sheer numbers of cars entered on track this year it’s very important to park your tow vehicle and trailer on to the grassed area if possible with your track car behind, therefore only taking up one paddock space. Please DO NOT park your track car alongside your trailer otherwise we are not going to fit everyone in. Also DO NOT park any non track cars in the paddock for the same reasons. I will need a couple of extra marshalls for a couple of hours between 7.30 - 9.30 to make sure this happens. We do rely very heavily on our regular marshalls Jan and John every year who are not actually members of the forum so please put your hand up if you can help.
Don't forget those collection buckets for us, well for Jan at least, she is hoping to get plenty of donations on entry again this year from all those lovely people who generously donate. I hope someone has ordered some great weather?
We will see you early Sunday morning
John & Jan :D

Apart from Cliff very generously doing his photography bit I’m sure there’ll be some good snappers at this year’s event but I’ve also asked for the Javelin track photographer to attend to do the sexy action shots of you all on two wheels at the chicane which we’ve missed for a few years and will be able to buy, possibly on the day. We also have a film crew in attendance so I’m your Sunday Best waistcoats, shirts, ties winkle pickers will be out. :lol:

Javelin pictures are free you get them all emailed after the day


Worth keeping in mind unlike most circuits it's pass on right at Blyton so you need to move to the left to let others pass..

Absolutely gutted, it looks like I won't be making it down the year :-(

Life and other demands have somewhat got in the way, but these things happen

I'll look forward to the photos and tales of derring-do out on the track.

But 100% of the money raised from my photos will be for the McMillan charity!
