  2. This has always intrigued me. When do the support classes get to practise and qualify? How are grid positions determined if there are no prac/qual sessions?

  3. That would be what happens on Thursday which I'm led to believe is a not for public entry day. What you see in my original post was taken off an MA web site and didn't include the Support class practice day on Thursday, what the programme is for Thursday is probably available somewhere but I just haven't got the time to try and find it.

  4. Thanks, PV. I wondered if Thurs might be the case for "lower" classes prac/qual. However, it's never been on any schedule that I've seen. It's a pity that it's not open to the public.

    I s'pose though, that they'd have to ensure that it's all finished to allow the Barry Sheene run to finish its lap of the track.

  5. Unless you are camping trackside of course ;)

  6. That schedule of events (Fri-Sun) and lots more can be found in the official program that's selling at all good news agents... picked up my copy already and now to start circling all the not to be missed events :grin:

    Hopefully get my 4 day pass later today or early tomorrow so I get to see all the Thursday action at the track :cool:
