    Definately should be some better times in it then mate, hopefully the weather is dry and not too hot so you can better that 14.6.

    Hmmm... still undecided if I'm going or not, I only want to spectate and not hit the strip, so £15 per person, is there anything worth buying whilst I'm there?

    dunno why you don't do the strip as you won't lose your way like at Castle Combe
