John, I have just checked the bookings and you are down on the list of "Redeemed Bookings" so you should have had an email from them with your passes as an attachment.
Did you check your Junk files?

The full list of participants on their website is as follows:

Redeemed bookings

1. Pete Pearson
2. Ashley Cooper
3. Andrew Ross
4. John Anastasio
5. Matthew Pilcher
6. Alan Burt
7. Andrew Carter

Approved but not redeemed applications

8. Joe Knight

"approved but the driver still needs to redeem their pass"

You need to go onto the booking site and complete the process. (PM sent to you)

Entry times for club display vehicles from 07:30 to 08:30

Although it says bookings closed on 1 August, when I went to their website just now it appeared that last minute bookings were still possible. ( 12 spaces available)

Jump to new posts MPG [by PaulL]
I keep an eye on MPG, topping up and taking a note of mileage. I am confident that what I am doing is right.
My wife and I have been going for 40 odd mile runs during the last warm evenings, through the country lanes.
Average Speed has been low due to traffic etc.
The last 400 miles has been done at 46mpg !
Couldn't get anymore fuel in and the gauge shows full.
Is this really possible.
99 20v NA, 102,000 miles.

Could have been me, often on A12 between Colchester Chelmsford Southend.

Rang them originally to book myself in because I couldn't do it online. Gave them card details then nothing from them.

Not me Matthew, I come from completely the opposite direction.

The main thing is to get there early before the gates get congested, about 08:00 to 08:30 is what I normally aim for

edit There is a map of the site layout with the email you would have received from Brands Hatch. E3 is a grass site if I remember right.

Thorium Molten Salt Reactors. I wonder if they sound good?

I just watched this video (it's a good channel if you don't know it BTW) and thought I'd post it up given the recent conversations on alternative power sources for cars. On the face of it, it certainly looks like a potentially workable solution held back by politics and profit... I've also been replaying Fallout 4 so I'm kinda biased at the moment...

Well done T.

It should improve with storage and mellow a bit. If you can wait for a month or two.

That's the qualification we had to do. Or possibly part of it.

Well, I bottled my lager a week ago and put one in the fridge yesterday, ready to try when I got home from work this morning (been working nights).

Didn't really fancy trying it when I got home though, so have just carefully poured one now.

For my first attempt and the cheaper cost of making it, I must say that it's not too bad smile

Not great, but not horrible either and acceptable to drink cool

It has a bit of a bitter taste to it, but fairly happy with my first attempt cool

Safety is not being completely ignored, but the information flow is very slow, considering the take up and the legislation is lagging behind.

HSE on EV's

Our electrical infrastructure is governed by a set of regulations BS7671. These regulations ensure we adhere to a common practice for electrical infrastructure. This includes, installation, training for those and who can work on the infrastructure, and that we also undertake take regular tests and inspections. I know that the new 18th edition has amendments for EV chargers but I've not noticed anything to do, specifically, with vehicles.

We have manufacturers delivering training on EV's but there does not seem to be any recognised standard, or nationally recognised qualification on the matter. I do hope we don't wait for deaths to indicate we need some standards!

When we were doing body repairs we had to complete an EV safety course about location of high tension cables. For us it was virtually irrelevant as we only tackled minor damage, but there were nasty stories about PDR guys getting shocks when using rods.
Manufacturers do sometimes route the cables in bizarre ways. Because Tesla wouldn't release details of their cabling to Thatcham, we were banned from working on them completely.
I must admit, if I were a Fire and Rescue Service person operating the "jaws", I'd be pretty reluctant to cut the top off an EV without clear guidance.

That would require that the cruise control be linked directly to the braking system. I'm not sure that's a good idea.

Although to be fair, I'm pretty down on the vast majority of driver aids. If you want the car to do all the work (I firmly believe on no evidence whatsoever except my old fogey prejudices that drivers rely on the aids working rather than actually (e.g.) looking out of the window before changing lanes) why didn't you just take a train? Fixed speed cruise control is fine; it's as easy to turn it off (four ways: the off switch, the temporary disable, the brake pedal, and the clutch pedal) as it is to turn it on.

Lane following? Not interested.

Yesterday I drove from a tiny village in Slovenia to a tiny village near Potsdam in Germany - four countries in one day, and at the beginning in storm weather so bad that Italian drivers were moving no faster than 15kph!
