coppice should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
In two minds about attending - the last few I have been to didn't really match up to expectation . It's a typical historic weekend meeting masquerading as something bigger and stretching a two day meeting to three . The timing of some feature races has been stupid- much as I love watching T70s etc , if races don't start until 5.30 or later , the 150 mile drive home does tend to mean I have to watch an hour long race for 50s Jags (for example ) at prime time- early afternoon - which is pleasant enough but not what I came to see whilst missing out on the star attraction.

Having 1 full day of qualy and 2 full days racing next year might help sort some of that out?

"It's a typical historic weekend meeting masquerading as something bigger and stretching a two day meeting to three ."

now that is it in a nutshell ! very well put
you might see that through the eyes of a speccy, but for an entrant is much the same
