Anyone going ? Car entry list here :

No room for me this year sadly, or any other 60's saloon by the looks of it.

I'll be there Friday and Sunday.

Pity about the lack of 60's saloons.

I'll be on a mission to get some close ups of the three Millenium Bentleys for a forth coming blog, everything else will be a bonus.

Weather permitting I'll be there on the Friday :up:

I'll be there from Thursday and together with Steve W and Charlie Williams we'll do our best to keep everyone amused and informed. TNF members are free to shout insults or throw bouquets from the startline.

Actually Chris I think we should charge people for shouting insults!

I do love fresh coconuts - can't stand that decimated stuff!

Also listen out for the three of us on Radio Cholmondley!

Actually Steve, there won't be a radio Chumley this year, not enough mini radios were bought last year to make it viable. But there will of course be p.a. and the big TV screens.

Does anyone know who is driving the 3 x Audi LM cars? I guess most of the current regulars will be at Le Mans. I read somewhere Guy Smith would be in a Speed 8 but I also know Derek Bell is there too.

Have any of the "pro" photographers read the T's and C's on the back of their freebie tickets?

As Wilkins Micawber might have said: "Well, Sir; if that is what The Law says, then he Law is a ass".

Frankly, I'm at a loss to understand what this statement (legal, or not) is trying to achieve; either they want photos of the event to be published, or they do not. From where I'm sitting, it looks like not.

It is standard BARC Thruxton gobbledegook. I first encountered this at Thruxton at an F2 meeting; I had paid to go in and wasn't going trackside. However when the obnoxious Sid Offord told me I couldn't video the event without paying BARC as he considered me a 'professional' I told him where to stuff his fee.

I would ignore the small print and carry on as normal as I don't believe they can stop you earning a crust.

They are the standard conditions of entry which appear in identical form on the tickets bought by the general public. Presumably they don't consider it worthwhile printing a new set for the small number which are issued as press tickets. I don't think it is their intention to admit the media end then not see the event reported.
I note that the same T & Cs appear on the back of the media pass for the Autosport show - i.e. that the holder cannot make commercial use of any photographs.
For instance, here are the terms and conditions for admission to MSV circuits:

The use of photographic equipment is allowed for private non-commercial purposes only. Any other recording or transmission of audio, visual or audio-visual material or any information or data by any method in any media relating to the Event or any part of it is prohibited. The ticketholder hereby assigns to MSV (by way of present assignment of future rights) the copyright in any audio, visual or audio-visual materials produced by the ticketholder at the Event.


I think you will find that, in the event of a photo of yours appearing in the press, they won't pursue you.

Presumably the small print is their way of attempting to sensor you if you show them in a negative light.

Thanks to Arttidesco's kind offer of a lift I shall also be there on Friday. Is there any sort of TNF get-together planned, or do we just hope to run into each other during the day. I've never been before - where are the best places to spectate?

I look forward to seeing you both on Friday. In previous years I have managed to bump into most TNFers during the course of the day.
This is a copy of last year's map and there will, doubtless, be changes here and there for this year. Unfortunately it does clearly show areas which are restricted for spectators.
The enclosure to the north of the track, by the section marked Chapel is probably quite good to view cars emerging from the wooded section at the top of the hill, also the infield bank between the ares marked Top gear and Classic Scrambers. Not sure if you will be able to get to the hump-backed bridge - most years you have, but I think last year it was restricted. The exit of Vicarage corner (bottom right) probably worth a look, and also the infield between the start and the bridge if you want to study startline technique. Not sure I can give you the best advice, Tim, as I have always been fortunate enough to have a track pass but no doubt someone else will have a better idea.

Pun-tastic comment! :smoking:

I shall not be risking further inundations/soakings in a topless Elan (the one with a roof on is, to my shame, still not roadworthy), so it looks like either the VW camper or the TT quattro for me... decisions, decisions... one vehicle can get out of boggy fields, or, oneself can sit there and cook bacon sandwiches, while the inevitable rain drums on the roof.

Thanks for the info, Alan - very useful, especially the map, which gives a much better idea of how the course runs than the one on the CPoP website this year. Looking forward to running into you and other TNFers on Friday.

Yes, they do, Ralph

...while the inevitable rain drums on the roof.

One thing you can rely on at Chumley is the need for wet-weather gear, and this year doesn't look like breaking with tradition if the BBC is to be believed. And after the previous weekend saw temperatures in this part of the world hit the 80s during a nine-day dry spell

Being namby-pamby southerners Ralph and I have decided to postpone our trip north until Saturday, in the expectation of slightly better weather. I look forward to still running into a few TNFers during the day.
