That's not far at all. 5.5 hours each way.
In ideal conditions

It's cheaper to fly to Edinburgh and blag a lift to the circuit from someone than it is to drive. Well, it is for me, but I'm on East Midlands Airport's doorstep.

Where are you booking flights? I've tried finding decent cheap flights around the UK, but driving always ends up cheaper. Cheapest I've ever seen Edinburgh/East Midlands at is 100+ per person. Cheaper to drive even in my relatively uneconomical 45mpg Fiesta. I've got to do a week in Bristol next year, and no matter how I spin it, the 450 mile drive is cheaper than flying and/or train. Sometimes hiring a car and driving is still cheaper than the other options.

320 miles for a racing event is nothing IMO. Happily did that for Donington trips back in the day, and LM is almost 900.

FlyBe, usually. The best I've managed was 56 for the round trip, but I guess you have to play the odds (and the cookies & IP address game) to get in at the right price point. For that trip it would've cost me 80 in diesel or 150 on the train!

Yeah exactly! WGI is 300 miles from my house, and I did that twice this year on weekend trips. Heading to a big event in two weeks that's 350mi, not batting an eye.

Then again, it's like the old saying - "In Europe, 100 miles is far, in America, 100 years is old."

I always thought it was SUPER embarrassing for those BTCC teams that wouldn't go to Knockhill because it was "too far."

Well if even the founder is saying it's below the BTCC, I see no real threat to either series. As I expected, it's probably gonna be akin to the National Saloon Championship

Brisky Racing might run Jake Hill, who tested the new car on the weekend, next year alongside maybe Natalie Brookes and Jade Edwards. Motorsport for Woman will be supporting the team this year, with the two aforementioned currently supported by them (and also currently driving with Brisky in Fiesta's).

The support package for TCR UK is looking good. National FF1600 announced a few weeks back and Mazda MX-5 Supercup announced today.
