i have a car ticket for the red bull air race at Longleat for saturday that a colleague of mine can no longer use. its for one vehicle so you can get as many people in as the law allows your vehicle to carry.

i've been wanting to see one of these air races for a long time they are supposed to be superb and the long leat estate will make a great setting

now i know this clashes with the wilderness gathering but if anyone would like to make me an offer for it that would be great orgional ticket price was £35

it would really need to go out next day today
make me an offer.
thanks James

Would love to go mate, but as you say its the Wilderness Gathering....but bearing in mind that Longleat is right next to the site of the Wilderness Gathering I wonder if we will get to see some of the planes flying around. :D

I'll be at the air race too. I did notice tickets were selling well on Ebay although obviously time's running down now.

Grrrr. Wish I'd gone to the wilderness gathering. :(
It was cancelled I hear :( A lady at my work went and said it took her 4 hours to get out of there.................and she didn't even see the show because it was cancelled........................Still look on the bright side. It took me 8 hours.....yes 8 hours to get out of Glastonbury festival last year and it was a roasting hot day :(

3¼ hrs from Lyme Regis, a journey that's normally a little over an hour. We spoke to someone who'd left Norfolk at 5am and got there at 2pm. That was bad, but worse for me was the stewarding and crowd control inside. I won't be attempting to go again.

The people who'll be laughing are those that sold tickets on ebay for double face value, they'll be getting a bonus refund too! :D

shame the organisers didnt learn from last year as it seems like it was just as bad. dont blame anyone from being a tad ticced off!!

i caught some of the race on tv...was quite something to watch, but i couldnt see any spectators at all as the cameras followed the aircraft around....were they ALL still in a queue waiting to get in or were they so far off (for safety reasons) that they had to watch on a big screen?

I guess they were showing the qualifying from the previous day. There was no flying at all on the day of the race. Race positions were allocated based on qualification.

:lmao: :lmao: I really do feel for everyone. one of my absolute pet hates are traffic jams and putting the cover back on the quilt after washing it. :( I nearly abandoned my car at Glastonbury............ 8 chuffing hours sitting in my car in the roasting heat :togo: I nearly went to the train station and left my car to rot where it stood.......................majorly hacked off does not describe it well enough. :(
