I have been speaking to Phil Ward about the event this year.

He assures me that the entry issues we had last year have been addressed and should not recur.

Much of the museum refurbishment work is completed so space will not be an issue - for example the finishing straight has reopened and been extended.

I have asked for a block of 30 spaces to be reserved for coupes.

The emphasis for this year's track demos is classics. Speak to Phil directly if you are interested.

There is a "secret" entrance to the site off Brooklands Drive, up near the Mercedes Benz world. We stumbled upon this entrance the year before last and managed to sneak in with a select group of Ferrari owners. The guys on the gate tried to block us from coming in after treating the Ferrari guys like VIPs... I'm sure this had nothing to with the fact we were driving old Fiats rolleyes

Hopefully they can sort themselves out this year. In previous years this has always been a great event. Have fun everyone.

Have just been sent a copy of the site plan. We are in the "Special Fiats" section at the top of the restored Start and Finish straight.

Click here for the map.

Hi sorry to sound daft but is this just put your name down and turn up. I'm re-emerging from quite a few years of non Coupe activity, have just done a partial restore on my Ink Black 20VT and would like to get involved again now she's all up and running and looking good! I now nothing about this event but would be interested in participating.

Yes, just put your name down and turn up.

You can just pay on the gate but it is cheaper if you buy tickets in advance and it may be quicker entry on the day.

Here's a link.

Just to be clear (from those who have been before), I'm taking other with me but don't want to pay for them upfront in case the cancel, so I can just turn up as pay on the gate on the day right. The website says if the museum get full you have to go off an used a park and ride etc. So how will they know I have a reserved space? is someone going to create some sort of pass from here?

Just go, They won't cancel the event and even if they did you would be refunded by Brooklands Museum Trust.

It will be slower to get in if you pay at the gate, but then that is your choice.

The marshals will direct you to the area reserved for the coupes. They know what coupes look like!

If you arrive so late that there is no room in the museum grounds you will be directed to an overflow car park next door which is just a short walk to the entrance.

No I meant if my friends cancel wanting to come I didn't want to buy their tickets upfront for nothing. OK well I have put my name down on the list here so I will be there. Be good to have some 3D Coupe chat.

Ah, I follow you now James.

It will just be a little slower getting in as they say they will have a separate lane for cars with prepaid tickets.

See you with the others at the top end of the finishing straight then.
