Tell them you are taking them on a trip to a special celebration to do with Puddings.

I'm sure they will love it. Obviously they would need to stay spectator side of the bridge.

On my list . The book I am writing (excuse shameless self publicity -see cool websites sub forum )involves my attending as diverse a range of events as possible and although I have been to Mallory many times since, cripes , F2 races in 1971 , I have never experienced the taste of the Plum Pudding meeting .

Rudernst and coppice - it's a great day out in proper clubbie style. The races are simply saloons, sports cars, solo motorcycles and sidecars - 2 races each. It attracts quite a mixture of entries.

We did the event a few years ago and it was -11 C as we arrived in the paddock that morning - wrap up warm!

We were going - my brother driving his MX5 and me on spanners as usual but had to withdraw when the gearbox failed at a track day a few days ago. Maybe we'll go and spectate!

Looks like I am going - question to regulars please. Is the parking on hardstanding (in which case it's in the MX5 ) or grass( the 4x4 Yeti on winter tyres )?

This.

I would imagine that the gravel tracks and parking areas may suffice for firm standing but if not then the overspill will be on grass.

I have not been all the way around the outside for a year or so but unless things have changed access the far side of the circuit where where is a lot of gravel based parking and good viewing is quite potholed but worth the trip.

To be honest, out of your two options I think I would take the Yeti anyway. However either should be fine.

Smashing day out , well attended and good entries . But no PA at all , no commentary . Not a problem but I assume the commentator referred to in the programme was 'indisposed ' ?

Enjoyed seeing some exuberant driving - circuit certainly not too grippy - and the sight of a motorbike racer dressed as Batman ......

The commentator was there and talking ... I assume the PA was very quiet at your part of the circuit

A selection of photos from the car section of the meeting. Bike photos will follow shortly.

Excellent day out - shame we could not hear the commentary - it would have helped as the timetable was adjusted after the attempt to dig a trench in front of us at the Esses - sequence in the gallery.

Anyone know why the G50 didn't run ? We arrived mid morning so may have missed the cause.

Having seen Martin Short in the Dallara at the WHT wonder if he fancies a trip to Mallory next year ... :-)
