Wow!!

How do you know if you have managed to get an entry?

Have received a email but quite confusing - only want a 2WD entry but it says 2WD entry on one but 4WD on other

Just like to check

I assume if successful then you would of been invited to pay. I suspect this is a bug.

Guessing there were only so many 2wd spots, so when people have added two 2wd (to get around the 4wd pricing issue) its taken all the spaces?

Fingers crossed

I'm with you on that...... Do we pay or not?.... If we don't pay, have we missed our chance to get on some sought of reserve list?

Ah thanks for the Facebook link, it's a bit vague if I'm reading it correctly, it doesn't answer anything about if you should pay or not if you received the email when at the same time the website says it's 'fully subscribed' , but I'm going to assume not anyway. Cheers for the help.

I've just been told by a friend to look on here and have a read!
I stopped on the way back from jobs in the evening booking went live, entered,
And got a reply saying "event over subscribed" but a few hours later received a payment request so paid!
Apart from Christmas Day and Boxing I've worked long hours all over Christmas.

And now reading the list I'm 51st reserve in 2wd
And 4th in 4wd

And my payment will be returned in due course ?

No message or email from anyone telling me of any problems.

Really !! WTF!

You guys know this is nothing to do with the club right?

The booking side (and associated issues) are handled by the BRCA, not Silverstone.

I support Silverstone club 110%, this unfortunately will put a grey cloud over the Silverstone club (by people who don't know them).
I do, and can honestly say the guys behind the scenes at Silverstone go above and beyond that extra mile to make there race meeting's the best they can possibly be.
There winter series is always fully/over booked, which says enough.
I'm not pointing a finger at anyone ! Especially not Silverstone !

But this really is a mess! Sorry if I offend anyone but it is.

As I received a payment request, thinking that I had a place?, I paid the request, and booked a hotel room to make sure I got it at the early booking prices.

Ah well....
I expect I'll turn up and glue up tyres for my friends who are racing.

Me too, have paid for myself 2wd and my lad 2wd and 4wd, booked the hotel for two nights and have found we're both on the reserve list for 2wd. I had a feeling that I was on the reserve list however when I booked Callum in I wasn't given any indication that he hadn't got in.

It is an awesome venue we were lucky to attend in 2013 and had a great day there! Not being critical of the BRCA but at the time booking in was done from memory via a website called central booking and was both transparent and easy to use.

I am in the same boat myself, 70+ on the 2wd reserves list and all paid up.

Just wanted to make sure that people understand that this is not the clubs doing!

Who on earth wrote that Facebook post?! "The BWOC die to good publicity..."

I was more concerned with the lack of SSL on the entry form, as we've all just sent our name, address and phone number over an unencrypted session to a website we can't verify the identity of. What makes it worse is that anyone who wanted to capture traffic knew exactly when to listen because of the defined opening time for entries, making it easy to grab everything in one lump to go through at their leisure
It's the same on the BRCA membership renewal page, no SSL - although arguably less of a security issue given the spread out nature of people making submissions.

I really appreciate the effort the BRCA is making to embrace things like online entry to events rather than faffing around with cheques etc, but it feels a bit rushed/not ready at the moment.
