So, will anyone be parking their cars in the pre '66 parking this year? From what I hear it's going to be like the 'Supercar' parking at the FoS; it's in the infield, but it's going to cost you an extra £90 per day to park there!

I hear the folks who parked in the Supercar parking were very unhappy - some were vandalised, stuff stolen, and it was nothing more than a dusty field - no security, nothing special. We assumed that was just because the FoS has become very commercialised, perhaps the Revival is heading the same way?

I was offered this as I am a GRRC member, I'm not sure if it is open to everyone. Also when I asked the young lady said they were being particular about the correct age, although any car over this age was welcome. £90 quid to park you car ? Also I don't think you can stay with you car or see the track from there.

Last year we parked in the pre 66 car park. In fact we were right next to the Helter Skelter and all the other stalls, we had pre booked with the tickets and it didn't cost any extra. Done exactly the same this year. Of course you are outside of the circuit and they are quite strict on the age relationship. I don't expect there to be any problems however it is a shame that these sort of venues, because of the status and popularity seem to be going the same way, to make as much money out of enthusiasts as possible.

That's what I thought, I can do a lot with £90 and bragging rights as to where you park, thanks but no thanks

Mine is booked into the pre 66 car park, as Murray I didn't pay any extra.
So this is additional to the normal pre 66 compound?
£90 I think I'll swerve that one. :)

Hmmm looks like a money-grabbing exercise imho.... bit like charging kit/classic car owners to display their cars at a car show!

20 rows of 25 cars cars at £90 each = thats an easy £45k, Lord March!

As a friend of mine said - you are effectively paying money in order to make the show you're already paying to attend better for all the other people paying to attend..

Actually, as a business model, that seems pretty good from Lord March's point of view, I'm sure!

.... and basically a fool if you do so!

I think the "pre-'66" car park is new and different to the established classic par park for tax exempt vehicles, which has always been free.
