Yeah I should have been clearer.seriouslylotus wrote: Are they really places or are we just getting more cars on circuit to boost the TDO coffers?, Bit like the charges for second drivers
Last year there was 60 spots and we filled them all. Nobody complained about over-crowding (not to me or Jonny at least!). The event has always run with 60 spots to my knowledge. This year the agreement I had with Jonny was to do the same again.
Last week, I asked BAT to give me a view on how many were on the reserve list and the list came back also stating that all 50 spots were filled (along with the names in reserve). Realising that a mistake had been made I asked BAT to adjust the number of places back to 60 thus creating some headroom which I posted about.
I tried to negotiate free second drivers this year but with free garages and pax monies to charity it was once again not something I was able to secure. I honestly did try though.
I sincerely hope that all exigers attending feel they get VFM out of the £240+pax fees that they chuck in BATs direction. Likewise I also hope that it is a profitable event for BAT, they're an expanding business that are ultimately trying to boost their coffers.
Please drop me a pm, post here or find me at Anglesey if you have any concerns whatsoever. My only agenda here is to do all I can to try and have an event similar to that which so many of us have enjoyed over the past decade or so.
