Against all advice I'll be riding up there and back again, if anyone else is daft enough to be considering doing the same I'd more than welcome the company.

I am also looking for travel from Yeovil, I'm planning on renting a van if anyone wants to share. Could also pick up on the way to LLANDOW, I am only doing the 1 day. Was also thinking of staying the night before.

Is there anywhere to stay the night before?
I'm not much of an early riser and I reckon I'd have to setoff by 6:30 (at the latest) to get there for gates opening. :80:

I have van that's been made into a camper and so could trailer my bike over and kip in the van. Just interested if there is anywhere secure to stay nearby, or even onsite?

you can't sleep on site but there is a campsite right next door to the circuit.

http://www.llandowcaravanpark.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

a fair few choose to stay at the local travel lodge on the M4. It's about 20 mins from the circuit. We go out for a meal on the Thursday evening as a social too.

prices have gone up a little but it helps to share.

Currently I'm investing in a box trailer and doing my trailer part to my licence. hopefully it will be complete by June.

I will be stopping in the Travelodge as last time as this was the easiest and cheapest way for me to relax with some good company and have a few beers (not to many) :)

We will have to sort out a Pub again Jimbo.

That one we went to Last year seemed to cater for all of us quite well plus it had good food.

I have now booked the campsite and bought a trailer to travel up in from Yeovil, I maybe able to get a second bike on the trailer(it is a proper trailer not a bike trailer) and pick someone up on the way.

My plan was to lock bikes up at the camp site(I have heavy duty locks) and go for a meal with everyone who's staying at the Travelodge, so if anyone's staying at the campsite and wants to go for the meal then Im happy to be driver for the night.

Just an idea. :wink:

Have booked a couple of b&b's to make a bit of a weekend of it as Lisa is coming to cheer lead on the bank at Llandow B-)

Also with my trailer, don't want to wait around for hrs on end to find a double parking space at the Travelodge in Llanelli. Will come and find the rest of you cool kids for dinner and a pint :D

People that are going to both llandow and pembrey, where is everyone staying the Friday night?

I'm just going to pembrey but would be good to have a drink the night before with someone other than myself.
