Shuttleworth race day tomorrow

Post by andygolfer » Sat Sep 30, 2017 8:19 am

I received the following message yesterday lunchtime re their countermeasures in the event of rain tomorrow, might be of interest to anyone planning to go. They will still ahve tickets available on the gate.
(the forecast has improved continually since they sent it out, must have magic powers!)


Weather reports for Sunday's Race Day event are currently quite unsettled so we have taken the decision to close online booking today. That will enable us to prepare the site for parking for our pre-booked numbers should there be heavy rain before or on the day. This includes laying down matting on areas of paddocks 1 and 2, and making the North park suitable for use, with blue badge holders on paddock 1. Those parked on North Park will have a slightly longer walk to the aerodrome, though we will be running passenger buggies wherever possible.

In the event of rain on the day aircraft will remain in the hangar for as long as possible, and free pilot led tours will be running in the hangars. A decision on the flying programme will be taken at 8.30 on Sunday morning based on the conditions, and an update posted on the Race Day event page on our website, Twitter and Facebook.

We, of course, hope for a dry day and action packed day to end what has been a fun filled season, thank you for your understanding and support.

fingers crossed - I bought tickets about 3 weeks ago!
