Entered, and yes it does seem expensive, but race circuits are expensive to hire so it's always going to be the case. Snetterton will be the same I imagine??

That's what I remembered. Not actually entered yet so probably my error :oops:

Still cheap at £125 a day though :)

I am intending to travel up on the Sunday and have a hotel booked for the Sunday night. Just had a response from Darlington and District Motor Club to say that it is OK to leave my trailer and car there overnight on the 1st. They are hoping scrutineering will be available on Sunday too.

I have booked Best Western Plus The Croft Hotel. Free cancellation up until the 1st. https://www.bestwestern.co.uk/hotels/be ... -0/rooms-1.
Probably not worth booking breakfast unfortunately!

That sounds very Cheshire.

Should we not try to book the same hotel so we can have a bit of a social that night :?:

I’ll have a look, but Itchy and Scratchy are coming too, so I need a family room.
