Hello all!!! Seasons greetings, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, Happy Ramadan or whatever other holidays I missed, happy one of them as well!!

This will most likely be my last year in England, and most likely my last year in the European theatre as well. I really would like to do a large meet up this year either in the Cambridge/Newmarket area or in the London area.

Also, this year, same as last, we will be booking a row in the Desiree Wilson stand section at Brands Hatch and camping from Thursday night thru Monday morning. I offer the same deal as last year. The cost is 107 pounds and if you send me your gear (for the guys coming from out of country) I will store it here at my house and carry it down to Brands for you so can just ride in and not have to deal with carrying too much. I would love to have us all camped near each other. We could have one hell of a setup. If you want me to book tickets for you let me know as I will be booking them in the first week in January. I already have 5 confirmed including myself.

re : meeting at brands

I would be more than eager to meet all us nelli's riders and wondered what the event at brands would be,ala what race meeting . meeting somewhere like cambridge or something sounds good wondered if to be more central for all wether rockingham would be good for northerners and southerners.maybe get a list of those going and see where sounds good ie atmosphere etc.Brands is the best place for that and more so when your out on track feeling like one of our heroes.I'm more than willing to enlist for camping if work will let me have days off.

Brands WSB the best !

Always go to that brands wsb meet as its got everything even though i travel 250 miles to get there,In 2006 won vip tickets through a television company and felt like a king for the day so for 2008 to be amongst all other benelli owners would also be a good crack .i can't wait:).

Dear MR J Rottin
I shall be down at brands for the WSB marshaling. Will you have a big flag up or some way of finding you guys when you have set up camp.
I will probably be on the marshals campsite on Scratchers Lane. :(
Its a bit quieter over there, i have to be up and about breakfasting at about 7 and i need my sleep. :p
Be nice to walk over and see everyone, if i can find you. :confused:

brands

I do think Lloyd lives down there somewhere. I will be ordering my tickets this week. Didn't get to it before I went to the land of the sand again. The tickets including camping and seats and grandstand access comes to 110 pounds (107 exactly i think and some shipping charges) and I will be buying seats reserved on the start finish straight.
