We’re booked in for tonight and aiming to get there as early as possible ie 3.15 latest - for the lucky ‘few’ that did get in what time did it finish?

keeping fingers crossed we get there in time...!
3.15pm would not have been early enough yesterday - good luck !

I was meant to reply yesterday/earlier, but having overnighted due to the 3 hour drive down, not really had a chance.

We had priority tickets (guaranteed entry before 1530) and arrived at 1515, there was a long queue, but we did just get in before 1530. Probably about 20 more cars were let in after us, then they shut the entrance.

Those that arrived from 1400, were let in.
Standard ticket holders were put to one side and priority cars lined up in rows in the holding area until it was full.
A couple of hours waiting there, looking round the cars, eating, drinking etc... Then we're were taken row by row and lined up in front of the stage. The earlier you get there, the closer you'll be to the stage.
FM radio, not really necessary, as the sound system thay had was good enough anyway.

Filming doesn't start until the sun goes down.

Have a fully charged battery!! There is a lot of time spent with headlights on for the filming. But AA on hand if you end up with a flat battery.

The night as a whole, was very enjoyable and I'm glad I went. Also very glad I didn't get turned away after a 3 hour drive down!
One of our episodes featured a Quattroporte, so keep your eyes open for that when it's on!


Nice to meet @MrPea and @Tilum

Quite a good evening overall. Saw some good footage of the new series and great to meet up with Tony and Mr.& Mrs. Fifty.
Lots of standing so got tiring towards the end. But enjoyed it muchly. Drank most of my supply of Scottish and Russian elixirs.

Thanks Fifty - looking forward to meeting other members in due course and my wife is loving the QPV as much as myself especially as she is doing all the driving currently following a shoulder op I had three weeks ago! May be fighting to get hold of the steering wheel again!!

Hope your shoulder heals quickly Tony. Cant be too bad being chauffeured around in the QPV for a few weeks

Hopefully next spring we can get together on mass again. The Ace cafe meets are a good way to get to know people on here

Thanks Fifty - much appreciated. There are worse ways to be driven indeed!

look forward to future meets and getting to know more members and their Maseratis!
