Here is a very poor map / location of the museum .  Apologies.   Gives a rough idea and postcode.

Glad your coming Adrian . Might call on your "being interviewed" skills  ;), as you came over very well at Brooklands , talking into their microphone .

A little bit of a update for Haynes. The Cafe opens from 9.00 am onwards, so there will be time for coffee etc , before Track opens at 10am. Vehicles/trailers can park up by the track . Cafe 750 is over the road(part of museum complex).

 I will book a table for lunch for those that want it . If  i can get an idea of numbers on here .

Ok, A little about Haynes kart track. as it's getting close. 
  Until Winter 2020 the track was longer/fast straights etc. 
Haynes Museum decided they want more corporate and parking space and as they own the Kart track land , reduced the size of track to gain this space.   The track was re-jigged and is now a real drivers track , with a three tight, but fun bends/chicanes.
 A little like Castle Combe , but level this time.  Perhaps like Whilton Mill Jim.  See the Aerial view pic.

Therefore certain parts are single file , taken steady .....please.    As we all want to come away safely.

It looks like a good track Chris and when I looked at google earth its a lot bigger/wider than i thought. I'm really looking forward to the day but as I live in Super Posh East Midlands (not like the west) I will unfortunately have to stand down from the builders meet. :)
