Not done this one before, so a couple of questions.

Can I arrive the evening before and drop my car and trailer off ?
Do they do scrutineering on Friday evening ?

Just put an online entry in, and booked the Premier Inn at Chippenham for Friday night.

Could be interesting as my flight back to the UK doesn't land until 4am on Friday 19th. What could possibly go wrong ? :lol:

Andy M (and others) camped overnight in the paddock the last time we were there - I don’t believe there’s scrutineering on Friday.

I did that some years ago but was concerned that the paddock didn’t seem secure and anyone could get in at any time

Time to grovel and beg?
They pushed past the 100 car limit to accommodate extra when I was last there

We want our show down.
