Will the entrance be at the same place as last year (i.e. next to "HO tracks" on the map)?

That is the entrance for exhibitors and disabled access. Public entrance is through the museum, from the main car park - see the map above.

Well, wonder of wonders; I'm on holidays in UK (from Canada) and will be in Stratford on Sunday! And can nip over to the Festival while significant other does the sights. Unfortunately am traveling by train and can't see any form of public transport to get from Stratford out to the Fest. Anyone have a suggestion (had thought of renting a bike but forecast is rain)?

hi Scott, sorry i don't know the area that well, if theres someone local to the area who can offer you a lift or to advise on bus timetables. Unfortunately the public transport system in the UK isn't great especially in rural areas and on sundays. Stratford is only around 10 miles from Gaydon, a taxi may be the best option.
I'm sure you'll have a great day if you can make it

Scott ask in your hotel see if you can get a "private hire" car the are usually cheaper than a traditional taxi, it may also be worth asking the staff they'll know the best and cheapest method.

It would certainly be a shame to travel this far and miss out on an opportunity like this it really is a great event.

Just back from Gaydon via pub lunch. My thanks to all concerned with the organisation, excellent show and venue. Since the entry fee got admission to the museum as well I dragged my (non-slotcar enthusiast but otherwise motorsport and car enthusiast) Father along and he was somewhat amazed by the variety and quality of modern slotcars. Maybe a potential convert.

Filled satchel with lots of toys and didn't spend above £15 on any single item!

Happy customer Coop

Back from Slot Fest what a great day out. Congratulations to the organisers and all who took part. Great location, good to chat with suppliers and manage to find a few bargains in the swap meet, if only I had taken some more cash! see you all next year.

Thanks to the organisers!!!
It was excellent. I have been to a few swapmeets but this is so so so much bigger and better and being able to race here and there for free was great. Everyone was chilled, many great bargains, an awsome museum with all types of amazing cars including a modification of the Thunderbirds car driven by Parker, many facilities, briefly met Maurizio who is a legend and loved oXigen track, met the creator of this forum, sorry I forget your name (do not ban me
) watched the manufacturers race which truly grabbed my attention unexpectedly. I would have stayed to the end but time, traffic and baby.

So if someone could please put down the results of every heat and the final result, I would appreciate that VERY much.

definitely going next year
