    out of curiousity but what was the perception on unauthorised access to the trackside ? I haven't seen many images I would question which suggests reasonable behaviour

    The GCR website has a cryptic reference to a "special weekend" on 2nd/3rd Feb, so my guess is the Manor may be being used again before being dispatched home/elsewhere. That seems to be the usual practice there now, which might be useful for anyone who wanted to see it at the Gala and couldn't make it!.

    Didn't see anything while out by the lineside myself, a few orange vests dotted around which I assume all are the new 'official photographers'. Only thing I have seen online are some pics from a certain person on a certain facebook group...
