So is anyone interested in this.
I was thinking going down on the Saturday - unsure if it will be in the Supe as its off the road at the moment, but if there are a few of us, then maybe we could get a convoy going :)

If your going, purchase your own tickets through the website above, and they will send the tickets out to you.

I have added a poll as well, which is a multi option. If you can state what day your going, and what price package as well.
There is also an option to say if you have been before and to say if it was good or not ;)

I've been before, probably won't bother again unless I can get some cheapo tickets as I did a few years ago - they used to heavily discount the 'pratice' Thursday night, but no longer it seems.

I would go to this but I'm in Thailand...assuming things settle down over there!

07-09-08, 15:41
Whats the Earls Court one like? Have people been to that one before?

08-09-08, 20:41
Bum... only Gold tickets left are times I can't go! That's us out!

If you want silver tickets, use code M099, might get you a discount if there's any tickets left!.

I've been last 2 years, kids can definately go. Last year we needed an extra ticket last minute but were told it was sold out. Although it doesn't get you in the show itself if you buy a ticket to the Classic car show which is through in an adjacent lobby you can walk through into the MPH car display area. Glad we did it as the Veyron wasn't in the MPH display it was on the Buggatti stand in the classic show. Also some good US muscle on show in the classic area.
