Any idea if the tickets are per car or per person?

The tickets are per car, when you register it asks for the vehicle registration plate and the number of people attending.

And people can just turn up on the day without a ticket, we won't turn anyone away for a free event, it's just nice to get an idea of numbers attending and get a record of names and cars so we can keep in touch.
Kindest regards

I was speaking to someone at Malcolm Ricketts BBQ on Saturday. He said his Elan is a non runner, so he's bringing it on a trailer :D To be fair it's an early car with factory red upholstery and the Lotus archivist wants to see it....

The picnic is a week tomorrow, Alan's car is all polished up for me & I can't wait to be there.

Please introduce yourself if you see me... I'll be the bald geezer in the Supersprint :-)

Can I make a suggestion to attendees. Why not put your name and elannet name on a piece of micropore or similar and stick it to your top? At Castle Combe I’ve often been surprised when finding out who someone was. They’re never how you picture them in your minds eye. It would be a great ice breaker.

5 days to go! Wish I could’ve made it.

Great idea Steve!

Not only did he make it yours Steve, but he rechristened it as a "SupersPint"

I expect we will have one or two super pints at the Bird in Hand pub tomorrow.
