Don't forget that should cover the cost of a large marquee. Plus it's an epic weekend and well worth the (375 mile for me) trip.

I knew there'd be some moaning about the ticket price


Firstly, the price includes the site fees which it hasn't in previous years. So you had part of your ticket price paid for. I've fronted the cost for the stand and I'll recoup it from the ticket sales, if enough sell.

Secondly, the cost price of tickets to me is ?25. It's a tenner on top to recoup the stand fees and what's left over is to pay for a marquee - which won't be cheap. The cost on the gate will be ?35 to the best of my knowledge and that doesn't allow you on the stand.

At the moment we've sold 2 tickets. It's going to be a lonely stand for those 2 if everyone baulks at the price. Looks like 50 might have been an optimistic estimate at the moment

I suspect the lack of early take up is because the event's a fair way off. However, if it's to be organised, people need to buy their tickets soon. Without sufficient numbers, there won't be money to hire a marquee and if everyone wants to leave it last minute to buy tickets then there won't be time to hire one or organise any of the other things that people want to have at JAE.

We're not on the list at the moment but we should be coming. Won't be camping though, we'll stay in a nice comfy hotel

No, it's not. Ticket sales were paid for on the gate but we always paid for the plot in advance - this organisation has always happened behind the scenes. This year it's different, JAE have changed the way they sell plot space and tickets. The two are now directly correlated and cost for space is related to number of tickets bought. I've booked a larger plot so that the numbers being previously talked about could be comfortably accommodated, but to do this (and get more space if I need to) I'm preselling tickets for it with a view to booking more space if we need it.

I'm a definate as well, do i have to pay full price for my son who's 14?
Juniors are classed as under 12 on the JAE website, but it doesn't go into more detail on there as yet. It seems a bit too low an age to me to have to pay full price, it's worth checking with John.

I'm sure it'll be fine


Nutzers won't bother what car you have and I think JAE aren't fussed what car you have as long as it's Jap.

Get your tickets in the Nutzshop

It really isn't far away and we can't make plans without proper numbers.

Indeed.

And I'll be mightily pissed if the Nutz stand gets canned because of lack of numbers. I'll hunt everyone down and shit in their lips.
