@Benedict Townsend Glad you joined up, bit busier on here than pistonheads! 

Can you make this? 

No can do I'm afraid since I'm in Brussels that weekend - I also live and work in Belgium so I'm regularly commuting between here and the UK. Means I have to plan my track day calendar for the year all in the month of February. Organised but horribly inflexible! Enjoy your stunning Exige at Hethel :)

Anyone got any recommendations for a hotel close to the track?

There and back in a day is easy from Surrey isn't it?

2h44mins - Silverstone killed me at 1h30mins so will just stay up the night before.

I recommend the Old Thorn Barn. Very reasonable, right outside the factory, decent breakfast.

Might be staying there myself as I'm Caterham racing at Snetterton on the 7th. Would be very tempting to sneak a few laps of Hethel in while I'm at it!

Thanks Jonny, that was my first choice from the brief research I did so will just go with that one.

 

good luck racing and hoping to see your gt430 on track at some point

I'm booked into the South Norfolk Guest House, in Great Moulton, from 6th to the 8th. I've no idea what its like, just looked reasonably convenient coming from the south. I'll be up early enough for dinner on the 6th. Anyone fancy gathering somewhere for dinner, maybe the Old Thorne Barn?  @BatMobile @booboo93 @Arun_D @The Pits @Bravo73

Hi Alastair. I would work around your arrival, but 7.30/8.00 would be fine. Earlier if you make it. Are you staying in the Old Thorne Barn?

I'll take that @BatMobile. I'm off to Goodwood in a few minutes for the Sprinting tomorrow. Freddie and Alison Eaton are competing (Blue Elise S Cup, I think you met them last weekend). Can't seem to get the messaging system to work for mobile numbers, but I'll be in the Bird in Hand at Wreningham by 7pm for Dinner for those who can make it.

For sure, it was forecast rain everyday 24 hours ago so very happy with this change....

i am leaving Surrey at 3pm and need to stop for a 4:30pm conference call. Should be there traffic permitting in time.
