Spoke to Prescott just now. You will get 2x wristbands on sign on (driver and mechanic) and under 14s get in FOC.

So we should get 4.

Does not help guests who turn up later unless you can leave them at the gate for a named person.

Did you ask the question Andy?

Just got home so I won’t phone. I suppose they’re trying to maximise their income. Our entry includes driver and mechanic, not spectators who pay on the gate.

Maybe. The email did say ring for guest passes. Why would they say that if there aren't any :?

I forgot to ask if they can be left at the gate, but I will have Alex with me who can run to the entrance with Faye's when she arrives. I'm sure he wont mind doing it for others.

I also forgot to ask specifically about guest passes. Just as they answered the other phone started going and a client walked in!

I had an issue last year that they would not let me in as I did not have a wrist band, which I could not get until I signed on. I could not sign on as i could not get past the gate!
I ended up having to pay on the gate as I was holding up a whole line of other trailers but I got my money back from the organisers.

That's Prescott for you :roll:

The track is pretty good, but there are a number of better hills but the paddock is rubbish, the trailer park an accident waiting to happen and the organisers need a lessons in Customer Service!!
