Brooklands don't seem to have made up any advertising posters for this event .....so I think we should make our own.

Some really good ideas were put forward for the c5-25 event,so if anyone can come up with a similar good poster for this event I'll print some off and put them up at my local bike shop,newsagents etc.

The more people there to cheer us on the better , especially on the Mercedes Track and the Test Hill 8)

Jordan has put together an advert for this event, I've emailed it to a couple of you .

If anyone else wants a copy and is able to put it up at work,local newsagents etc let me know and I'll forward one on to you.

I'll be asking for a list of those wanting to attend soon so that I know how many tickets to ask for.

Not long now, you can feel the tension building ......

Is Andy going to triumph again on the track, or is there a faster c5 rider waiting in the wings ??

Will Ray go the furthest up Test Hill ??

Last years records are there waiting to be beaten  ;D 8) :D

Dont forget you will need bicycle crash helmets ...and a microscooter !!

I'll be there, but still currently short on a cycle helmet, so best see about getting one. I don't think i'll be worrying anyone in the race though  :D :D

Is there a prize for the shortest distance up the hill  ;D

I've just had a text message from Adam Harper confirming he will be attending again this year - so if there are any specific c5 goodies that you want it, might be worth giving him a call/text message to make sure he brings the right stuff along.

Could I please now have the names of those wanting to attend

I will be contacting the event organisers again on Monday to tell them how many tickets we require.

Same as last year, a few things to note ;

The tickets will permit free entry to the person bringing along a c5 plus 1 additional person. I will be there handing them out at the entrance on the day.

You will need a cycle helmet before being allowed onto the track.

You will also have to sign a "terms and conditions" form before being allowed on the track. This will be done on the day. Note that there is a signing on time of 9am  

The schedule for the day has been published on the Brooklands site;
http://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/index.php?/events/details/2009/09/20/

As always this is subject to last minute changes and should be treated as a rough guide  :)

It looks as though we will be attempting the hill climb some time after 11am, and not venturing onto the track until after 3pm. Apologies to all those travelling from further afield as this will mean a slightly longer day than anticipated. On the bright side, it gives everyone more time to explore the fantastic museum site, have a good chat and spend money with Adam  ;D.

The children's micro-scooter race will be around noon , with the adult version of the scooter race to follow on afterwards. Each child arriving with such a scooter should also get free entry (not yet confirmed).

To summarise, free entrance tickets are available to those bringing along a c5 but I need to know how many tickets are required so please let me know before Monday if you want to come along.

Lastly, if you've any questions - just ask  8)

I will be there with a C5 but not shure about bringing Mini EL,as it is a long drive with a trailer.
I will try to talk myself into it,hehehe.
