Thats it. If so I'm not surprised that ticket sales may be down.

The website is still saying that you need to be a member before purchasing, so weekend would be 138 plus the 39 above. No suggestion of sold out.....

I think we decided previously that the cheapest way to attend the meeting was to enter a race and get an allocation of passes......

Not only is it confusing for would be spectators, but accredited media, such as myself, who report historic motorsport full time, are not welcome at MM. No explanation.

Just received an email saying the last few remaining tickets will sell out imminently - probably just as well given how soon it is!

It also says there's only one day left to buy them - presumably to allow for the time to post them out.

But you have to wonder what will happen if they happen to have a few left over...

The attitude to we media is indeed a strange one, as a favoured few do get in. It is frustrating when watching the TV, one can see bods in media bibs scurrying around on the grid taking pictures with telephones! Hardly professionals...

Given that 39 quid Fellows can only buy 4 tickets, you need to be a full 225 quid member to get the 6 that they give entrants.

6 x 138 + 225 does indeed = more than race entry...

Apparently the benefits of membership are less than they used to be (especially if you live some distance from Chichester) so a number of members haven't been renewing.
However I heard that if you drop out you can't rejoin in the future...

It would help if membership came with reasonably priced accommodation, I like to point out that the deal we were offered by the Hermitage in Monaco was a similar price to a B&B near Goodwood!

Thanks for working the figures out Peter!

Obviously race entry does also require an eligible set of wheels and an invite......

The criteria for an invite seems to have changed in recent years too!

They seem to send an endless number of emails to members, most of which aren't of great interest but some are useful - maybe you have unsubscribed from it?

True and not forgetting the costs of running the thing - including (rip off) accommodation for everyone involved in the process.

Hopefully the event is going to end up as a snowman building competition...

How much does invite/entry cost? Masters etc. does to seem to be a lot more than say HSCC.

I don't know what entry fees were this year. Whatever, The 'stand alone' MM isn't really comparable to racing with a club such as HSCC or commercial organiser like Masters, or indeed at Goodwood Revival.

If you've got an eligible car, particularly one that GRRC are keen to have, and get an invite, then most would take up the opportunity- despite it being mid March!
