Quote....I'll be visiting the site when the rules allow and will be scoping out an area for us to drive around in as well as doing the speed trial route.   The organisers are keen to have us and believe that cyclekarts will add to the spectacle.

Be more than happy to meet and join you for this Stefan, its about 3 miles through the lanes for me ! Cheers.

I'd like to firm up numbers with Grimsthorpe to try and ensure we get some time on the Speed Trials course.   If your name is not already on the list (see the post a few replies before this) and you'd like to come, then please let me know by replying here by the end of April.
thanks

I won't be there, I usually have a model boat show that weekend, so working, though it's yet to be confirmed.

Think you have missed me, Chris L off the list.  ;D Oops

 Do we need to book the 2 nights camping, direct with the organisers ?

Apologies Chris.  I’ll be sending out special booking forms shortly and you can book camping on there.

My entry is paid with camping on the Friday. I have loads of camping kit so if anyone needs to borrow something let me know and I will bring it in the love mobile.

Hello campers!

So, it’s a slightly moving target trying to organise this.  It appears that whilst we were told, nay, encouraged, to camp on Saturday night too, there is no camping on Saturday night at Grimsthorpe.

If you were hoping to camp on Saturday night please let me know and I’ll see if we can find an alternative.

Update on camping.

Simon, our local correspondent, tells me that there's a campsite just a short distance away at The Wishing Well Inn, in Dyke, Bourne - that's 5-6 miles from Grimsthorpe.
