Hmm....... the lady I dealt with earlier in the year was called Francesca Barrett, and we agreed that rather than all the tickets having to be distribute through me, that everyone could apply individually, and that they would group all Abarths together... it is possible that they have forgotten this, or that they felt that we did not have enough cars booked to justify a club stand.

I will pen an email to her tomorrow to find out what happened and let you guys know.
Thank you Colin. I had been dealing with Francesca booking my ticket but it appears Katie has since taken over. Email below...

Dear Sam,

Thank you for your email,

You will be exhibiting as an individual as the Abarth owners club don't have a stand at the event. You will be permitted to bring up to 4 people with you in the car on entry to the event and yes you will be free to walk around the grounds and Castle.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday,

Many thanks,

Katie

Received this from Alysha at Leeds Castle, for anyone that has booked? Only for the Sunday though

Morning guys

I've got the same pass to go in my window so would assume we will be parked together?

More than happy to meet at the services beforehand though? I'm an early bird so will meet whatever time you guys are up for it  8)

The weather's looking great so really looking forward to this weekend especially as I missed Brooklands in the end.

Are you defo doing the Saturday? I checked that email from Alysha with the ticket and it said we could even meet in their car park near the entrance if we need to meet before hand. It did say if we weren't part of a car club we would need to meet before. lets see what Colin comes up with after contacting them as it looks as though we had been promised a club area but maybe there wasn't enough of us. Do you know anyone else who is coming on the Saturday?

This is the response I got back from them:

Dear Colin

Thank you for your e-mail. We only have three members, but they are in a pitch altogether as their pass suggests.

We will allocate enough space for the three of them to be together.

Kind regards

Thank you guys for confirming. I was going to call them so you beat me to it  ;)

Now it is confirmed we're together probably makes sense we simply meet on the pitch we have. Guess some will arrive earlier than others and my father-in-law is joining me and he is not an early starter!  ;)

Look forward to seeing the guys there.

Is your pass the same as this? Looking back CJ attached his pass for the Sunday and it looks very different. His pass is very much an Abarth Owners Club pass whereas mine isn't? Still confused so I'll have to check again with Alysha! I even made it quite clear on the application I was with the AOC....

I've put my pass on this thread as I still think they've given me the wrong pass as it says nothing about the AOC like CJ's pass for the Sunday. I've emailed Alysha and asked if i have the correct pass. I did make it clear on the application that I was with AOC...I call in the morning as well. Bloody nightmare this is with Leeds, keep being told different things by them!  >:(

I'm not able to attend myself (it is a very long haul from Bristol where I allegedly live!), so I've not go a pass of my own to compare...... but if there is one that looks like it is an AOC one and one which is clearly not, I would say that they have goofed up. I would suggest you call them directly - do you have Alysha's phone number?

I do Colin so no worries. I'll call her tomorrow. Be a pity to arrive and find out I'm in a field with a load of Fords  ;)

The latest with Leeds Castle (bloody nightmare they are).

I'm told I'm the only Abarth on Saturday hence why NO Abarth Owners Club area has been allowed for.

She says 3no Abarths are coming on Sunday which is why they are making allowances for the AOC on Sunday only.

As it stands I'll be in the mix with other cars on Saturday so suggest to anyone actually coming on the Saturday to let Alysha know asap and let me know also so we can give them stick... >:(

Looks like I need to ring them tomorrow as well! Just checked my pass and it says Sunday even though I booked Sat! Hopefully will be allowed to come on Sat as I can't do Sunday

Guys

Looks like there are two of us tomorrow (Saturday) in Zone C. Aylsha said John and I will be together but not convinced if we're simply in Zone C rather than an actual AOC pitch....Oh well, whatever happens should be a good day out!  :)
