From this map, you can see that there are two entrances to Hawksbrook Lane.
They are connected but there are barriers to stop access to the schools from the entrance off Red Lodge Road/Wickham Way.

You can only get in from the entrance off South Eden Park Road (B230).

I think you will be on the tail-end of the traffic at that time. As stated before, as long as there are not accidents, etc, the traffic will be heavy but should flow...

Will you be M1 - M25 Paul?

As Andy says, the bottom of the M1 can be pants from J9 down to the M25 as the road works are causing issues with people joining the motorway at J8.

I normally get to J9 about 6.30 at night and generally it has been better near Hemel Hempstead as they are changing the priorities, etc.

290 mile for me, three mile further than taly, i managed to get home in 4 hours from there though

I would reccommend the a1, a14, m11 route as well, they are all pretty good roads

Two minutes walk from Eden Park as we do have a couple of racers that rely on the trains to race. For those of you wanting to head into London, the line out of the Station goes into Charing Cross and takes about 35 minutes.

I believe that the bar will be open from midday on Friday so you wont have to stagger far to your camper!!!

Of course this will be confirmed nearer the time by either Brookie or myself.

There are toilets on site and we should have access to the changing rooms and showers. The toilets will be open all day but for the people staying trackside overnight, there will be a portable toilet located in the camping area.

Please be aware that the venue makes most of ts money from football and the showers/changing rooms reflect this But we are going to make sure that the facilities are as clean and tidy as possible.

It appears that the sports club are going to do the catering which will be in the main building - again this will be confirmed.

If you are wondering about other food places, there is a convenience store, petrol station, pub, kebab house, cafe and more all within five minutes walk and very easy to find.

There is a Sainsbury's in West Wickham that is less five minutes drive away.

Should anyone need further info or directions, please do not hesitate to ask on this site (or PM) or come the meetings, I will be trackside from when you arrive Friday...

Default Open class at SE 2WD Regional - 15 June

Just to let you know that we will be running an open class alongside the 2WD regional that is being hosted by EPR next Sunday. I understand that it clashes with some other events but that unfortunately cannot be helped.

I know of a few from the Midands and North that are planning a visit. If anyone wants to have a practice and intends on competing, please can they drop me their details to matt@rcracer.com so I can save us all time on Sunday.

If you want to know more details about how we will run the meeting and timetable, just ask!
