if you have an SLR bring that. point and shoot camera's are crap for racing! i was close to the track and it was still not close enough to get a good shot!

Nah London's s*** for drivng mate, stick to the underground you'll get rinsed with the congestion charge too.

The MTC is in Woking tho thats out side of london and its in the countryside so might be worth renting to get out and about that way?

I said logical.... :wink: In todays financial climate it does not make fecking sense to move it costing millions of pounds. Why does Bernie (God I despise that little man) want it moving from Silverstone?
