    ^ I wondered this too as if need to do a quick tyre change would like to go back out and make the most of my session.

    Lez i love the day but if they change to 5 groups its bang out off order on all the other 100 drivers that have already booked and paid, i paid well over a month ago for this and it clearly says max off 100 cars running 4 groups, how can they change this with only a few days to go !!
    If it said 5 groups i wouldn't have bothered and would have booked snett instead, with 5 groups we will have to wait a hour between runs instead off 45mins
    And if its not about greed will they share the extra £2500 they will make between the 100 so everyone gets £25 refund ?

    Just to add- The extra group will be a bag of mixed drivers! Its not a problem generally; but with 25 cars on track it will be.

    Such a joke, the car park will be jammed
    Tyre changes gonna take even longer
    Wasn't impressed with how lydden ran for the 'weekender' back in December looks like it's going to be like that all over again
    If people didn't book far ahead in time tough luck no need to ruin everyone else's day by over packing the track
    Thought practise days are about seat time looks like there won't be much..

    There will be a 5th group and only 7 sessions so thats down from 8 sessions normally isn't it? Which means a loss of seat time. How can they say you won't lose seat time is beyond me......

    Might mean an end to Lydden for me. Yeh great more people get to skid, which i'm all for, but yes, its affecting pre booked and paid peoples seat times.
    I would rather chance a saturday at pod...

    Standin around for an hour just so you can go skidding for ten mins ain't drifting go back to open pit lane because people are only out for ten after that they have to come in change tyres and it sorts it's self out within about an hour or so, also some on needs to copy and paste this to lyddens wall so they can see it it's all good us ranting about it on hear but if lydden don't see it it gets us no wear. Beau done
