Ill probably be having a quick look around the Fiestas too, if there is time after having a good look round the Citroens. 8-)

We will be traveling down early Saturday from the real North :lol: Im hoping 200 miles will be around 4 hours or so, so if you see us ... shouldnt be too hard to spot.

Depandant on cost i might camp over saturday night....Dont fancy doing the drive and back all in one day...It doesnt look that bad on the map but it always seems longer when you drive it.

I havent slept in a tent in years :)

I'm gonna be there on the Sunday only now. Will get an early start.

I can't be bothered to sort out camping etc. Not going to miss the Activa workshop though...

Just had a clarification email back from the CCC. Im not camping over...its £12 to camp and then £9 to get in.....added to the probable £30 in juice its too much money.

Ill just travel down early in the morning, and sleep downstairs to make sure i dont wake the kids up early.

Shame, i was looking forward to a good nights sleep on my own in a tent followed by a nice brekkie...

If you still want a lift on Saturday, my offer stands, it looks like there's only me going from this end, so a slight detour is no problem :wink:

Unlike previous recent Rallies, this is a well-serviced camp facility. Apparently. Has anyone had experience of the Gaydon venue?

In my opinion £12 overnight isn't too bad and the £9 gives access over the whole weekend.

But with £40 odd in fuel it does bump it up I guess. Ah well it is but once a year!

You guys don't have to add the price of a ferry onto the weekend as well!
