Their Home page says the deadline has been extended and they are still taking entries? :o

So my entry has just been posted, fingers crossed I might just scrape in? :)


Glad to hear your on the mend

I have contacted the organisers and the response I have is:

Sorry the sessions have not been sorted yet, further information will be sent within the month of June


We continue to wait...

In previous years we have never received out paperwork and tickets until a couple of weeks before.
It’s the normal for VMCC events, no need to panic.
Probably a deliberate ploy so people don’t have time to lose the paperwork before the event after putting it somewhere safe.

I have had a further response from VMCC. They apologise for the delay in sorting the sessions out. I have been told they have been without an events organiser for 3 months. They will sort it soon and say it will be better next year.

Just got my schedule in and looks as if I will be home for this one.
Looking back through the pages for this I have got a bit lost as to what I need to get in for the meeting.

I guess to get in nothing just turn up on the day ?
But to take the parade laps need to pre book ?

See you all there Thumbs Up

Ring the VMCC and they can e mail or post you entry forms, I believe there are still spaces.

Just sent my entry off to VMCC. Not doing Brands GP now, so hoping to brush some rust off with a few laps of Mallory.

Who's been before? Wondering how packed the paddock's going to be, and maybe I need to get there on the Saturday.

Or Friday afternoon ...

What say the experienced?

Thanks

Stephen

What do the various classes mean for the track sessions? There doesn't seem to be a key on the site

For Stephen H2r
Hi Stephen
The paddock in the centre of the track usually opens around 2pm on the Friday and a group of us arrive then and get a pitch large enough for our group.
You are welcome to join us.
We can normally get our road and race bikes scrutineered from around 4 pm on the Friday to avoid the queue on Saturday.
Only those with race bike entries can park in the paddock, those who only have road bike entries park on the outside but they cab freely walk across the bridge into the paddock without any special pass to look at the bikes in there.
If you are arriving on the Saturday you will need to be early as the only access to the paddock is across the track which normally closes at 8am.
Give me a call and we can discuss.
Regards
Clive

Hi Clive, I'm on hols at the moment so will phone when I get back.

I'll prob turn up on the Fri about the same time as you. You bringing a marquee or some sort of cover?

Good call re levelling chocks, I'll need some for my trailer.

Later ...

Anyone know what the road bike scrutineering is like? My 500 isn't going to be done in time so it'll have to be my regular 400 rat bike. It might raise an eyebrow or two.

For road bikes they just have to be roadworthy as for an MOT.
It’s not too bad.
For race bikes it’s to normal ACU standards.
Basically if your bike won’t pass it should not be on the road anyway!
