Carol,

they have a car park on site, that is accessed via this route, so should be OK

Thanks Chris!

Having once damaged our previous van at a narrow access at Hillingdon (before they improved it to the current quality) I tend to be a little concerned about such things :)

Can we confirm that there are facilities (toilets) at Nelson please? Just read a review online that suggests that there may not be but that could be out of date?

Yes, there is a pavilion onsite with toilets and changing rooms

The review you read may have said there weren't as it's possible to book the track without requesting access to these facilities which are usually locked.

But your bladder need not fear as they have posted me a set of keys....

Thanks for the great race and organizing it etc.
I appear to have lost my pump and on-the-bike toolkit though, did anyone see them left behind and pick them up?

Results for Nelson will take slightly longer than usual because the timing system was picking up two passes per lap for some people (the two halves of the track being very close near the start/finish area). This is going to take some hand-editing to sort out - please bear with me.

In future please remind me to place the antennas facing away from the return half of the track to avoid this sort of problem.

Many thanks to Anne Tweddle for operating the video camera once again so we have a complete record of the race, if required as a backup to the timing system.

Tip: If you sit by the track wearing your helmet compete with timing tags you can appear to be in an exciting on-track battle... One of the most exciting races I've ever had... Big smile
