It's fully booked

They let you camp outside the paddock, as long as you get past the outside security gate before it shuts. Not sure at what time that is though.

I'll be contacting them for some specific garages. It is usually 1st come 1st served though. If we aim garages closest to Redgate, as the paddock has more space at that end. It get a bit narrow up towards the stupid goddards :-)

The final update
Bikes going are a selections of VJ22 and VJ21, Aprilia RS MK2 RG500, A few RGV500 hybrids. TZ250 (not sure which version) TD3. As for numbers I'm not sure as some people didn't bother confirming they had booked, but thank you to those that did.

I will be issuing 2TBigBang stickers to anyone that wants one.

I will be staying at the circuit Thursday evening. There is a small collecting area just outside the paddock entrance that the circuit let you use (unofficial). You have to be inside the perimeter security gates before 8pm otherwise it's a pain to get in. I'm taking beer and a chair. Travelling light :-)

Circuit gates open quite early and there is a mad dash for garages. 2TBigBang have been allocated 4 garages. I suggest that we try to fill up the garages next to the resserved garages to spread out a bit. Last year we were packed in like sardines.

Signing on is from 7:30, briefing 8:30. The Lower group should be on track by 9:40 for the 1st of 7 sessions. Last session will be at around 16:40 with the circuit closing at 17:00. 

If at all possible a group picture in pit lane after the last morning session would be wonderful 

Please come along even if you are not riding and say hello and take some pictures. I'm the 56 year old Ed Sheeran lookalike.

With an unknown number of attendees I was confident having given out the discount code that plenty of people would turn up. So it was at 6:45am I lead the cavalry charge to secure a couple of garages. we spread across 4 garages and did our best to hog 4 garages. And it worked, even turfing a couple of 4T's out that tried to sneak into a very small space we accidentally left.

Gary VJ21 John VJ21 Tony VJ21 Harry VJ21 Chris LC Andy NSR (no not that Andy) Graham VJ23 Andy Marsbar LC  Dave TZR and RS250 Geoff RGV5 and MK1 Aprilia Jamie TD3 and Suzuki 200 Alexk VJ22 and me with 2 of the RG's and the faithful MK2 Aprilia. Sorry if I forgot anyone. We had plenty of space to spread out. Then Alan Seeley from Practical Sports Bike magazine turned up and took loads of pics, drank all the tea and talked to everyone.

All sessions went pretty much OK. Here's a few "highlights" AlexK new airbag one piece suit complete with "the Tuxedo" dance option, Gary split a stinger completely off on a tyga pipe, John destroyed a sprocket carrier and was lucky to stay on, Jamie's Suzuki didn't want to run, Harry lost power then lost the front end, a few excursions into the kitty litter and Tony using kerbs grass and the biggest elbows in the world to overtake people (which he did a lot of).

Photo's to follow once I figure out how Flickr works. 

Last off I had 50 stickers printed and so far we have raised 65 for the Air Ambulance. If anyone else would like some stickers (see above) posting out I can take paypal to phil.mellor@ntlworld.com and add it to the cash I have in a big envelope

To book the 2T Big Bang you need to ring No Limits. It's a closed event (at the moment) and not available to book online. Tell them you are riding a 2 Stroke
