Where have you heard that Steve?
Entries Sec. Josh never received his email to confirm entry received so I emailed him. He has the entries but told me event is way over subscribed. He did say they normally have quite a few withdraw so fingers crossed.

I told him to give only Josh an entry if necessary.

I only posted my Goodwood entry on Monday and have had confirmation, so I suspect there may still be availability if you fancied that instead/as well?

Oh go on!
It's a great track, and consider the possibility of Josh beating Nick on the Keyser "home turf"!

Just be sure to pack your sarnies as the burger van price board might give you a heart attack Steve....

I doubt he shares your interest in electronic light orchestra.

Get your b+e done and tow it down yourself Josh, chop chop!

Just had an email to say I am on reserve list (I assume Josh is too)

Has anyone else had a similar email or to confirm they are in event?
