First visit, quite expensive, but lovely location, good parking and good viewing points all the way along route, enjoyed our visit on nice sunny day, not too crowded and lots to watch without big gaps between climbs. Great selection of vintage cars participating. Well organised.

My first time and I loved it!!! Fabulous venue. Really entertaining with great views of the track at various places. We took a picnic but they didn't seem to take the liberties with the on site food and drink prices. Definitely recommended!
