    I believe Ciderman is going too. We're on the prime camping site opposite the hotel, feel free to pop over and say hello/compare stories/look at photos/share a beer or three. You can't miss our van, 7 metre Iveco Turbo Daily in bright red and black with a photo of the eclipse on the rear and my name on it, literally.

    We are in the area behind the hotel as well, got our fun badge up in the van, Hymer with sheepskin covers should be easy to spot. Always good to meet funsters and have a drink. :thumb:

    Done it twice, it's does not vary a whole lot. Both times have been glorious weather, maybe a third time would be pushing it.

    This year we are going for the cheap option, Festival of 1000 bikes, Malory. As recommended by Eddie of Carol fame. Looks like it will be just as good on a two wheeled smaller scale.

    Being the local Ford Dealer I get free tickets every year.

    Spent most of today trying to give my tickets away, wish I'd thought of you guys before spotting this thread..........Griff:thumb:

    Oh thank you popeye we are having a good time already had our bikes off and cycled all around the circuit, Ed was made up, not many people in but some how we just rode past on our bikes and had a great hour looking around the cars, the atmosphere here on the camp site is really good.

    Maybe next year we will check if you have any tickets going before we book. will post some photo's in the next couple of days. :Smile:

    we're back now, had a fantastic time and saw and experienced lots. I even went round the rally stage in a Mk2 Escort RS 1800 (passenger of course), brilliant fun. Just got to sort through the 1000 or so photos I took and coupler of hours of video we shot, oh and save up for next year of course. I got a cracking shot of Stirling Moss in the C type Jaguar at the top paddock. I'll post a few later.
