Ok have spoken with Al and those who would like cars on the roller will need their name down on his list in the seperate thread, but if you're just interested in meeting up with other owners and having a nice cola then there is a car park near the field doing the RR to park in for the admire section of the day :)

The car park is here on the right hand side behind the tree and before the barrier in the middle distance. As for the field - what field??

For those who have not been before and are not putting their car on the dyno please note that Surrey RR is within the Longcross Studios site - the former tank factory and QinetiQ (ex MOD) site: the test track is the other side of the M3 across the bridge - and you have to pass the security gate to get to it. Bring plenty of cola/beer/haribo with you as the location is way out in the boondocks and there is nothing else to see/do (the studios are off limits). Also there are noise restrictions on site and the doors have to be kept closed when a car is on the dyno. There is limited room inside and Charlie (the MD) is strict on safety.

Is there an M3 exit to use to get there ?
It looks like it's right next to the M3, but there's no immediate exit to it, so I thought you maybe get to it via the A30 ??
