Gurston Down 21/22 April 2018

What time can you sign in from? Start back from there. You need to have the car unloaded and ready to run before then. Normally you sign on then scrutineers come round.

Find the time to at least walk down to the bends in the middle of the hill before practice. I can't see a problem with your son. Just remember you are going to be pretty tied up for much of the day. I know Craig has taken both his sons.

I would get to the circuit for 7am.

Your son will be fine at Gurston, he just needs to understand you won’t be able to focus on him during the day.

Corky also takes his two boys sometimes. I would say that there may not be much for him to do. On the other hand you need to allow plenty of time! As Nick has said get there early so you are not rushed. Check the Finals when they arrive or ask the organisers if you can leave the car at the track the night before (and fit an extra lock just in case!). If you are getting there on the Friday see if you can walk the track then, one less job for the morning.
Take some change, you will probably have to purchase a sticker for your helmet, also hans device if you are using one. Change is good for trackside coffee, bacon butties etc.

More than that Jim, look at the Gurston Down website http://www.gurstondown.org/event-calendar/ and under 'competitor information' then 'entry lists & final instructions' you will find the full lists, about 130 entries on Saturday and bikes as well on Sunday. Should be a busy day!
