    Getting the van ready over the next couple of days for driving down Wednesday morning so we'll make sure our badges are there.
    Should I take binoculars so I can spot @DuxDeluxe before he sees me first? :LOL:

    We are going for the day on Thursday and will wear our badges.

    Does anyone know if you can park motorhomes in the general parking?

    You could when we went there a couple of years ago. Looked like several stayed overnight there (or managed to get exactly the same parking spot 2 days running!).

    I have certainly seen motorhomes in general parking so I would say yes.

    We will be getting the train again, Virgin from Watford junction takes about an hour and delivers you inside the nec... Have a few drinks without worrying about driving. Let the train take the strain. (y)

    You will be directed by NEC staff to the appropriate car park and will be able to park in with the cars. We've been as day visitors in the van twice and had no problems at all. The staff have been very efficient.

    We aim to arrive for 11am on Wednesday (when our on site pitch will be available) relax and have lunch then go into the exhibition for the afternoon. Thursday and Friday we will be there all day (or until our legs start dropping off :D) before coming home on Saturday. Much more relaxing than staying elsewhere.

    Sorry we will miss you this time. We loved Warwick cc site on the race course! A walk in to town and the castle was interesting especially with people dressed as characters ! Enjoy!!
