    last year it was a total of 100 cars and allowing 40 cars out on the track at any one time, but I believe they have reduced the numbers by 20% this year

    Just so I know before I go, whats the rules on cameras on recording a lap as Ive seen plenty on youtube and was half hoping to do something for myself to annoy the other half with when I get back about how much fun I had. Any ideas?????

    Camera rules vary from place to place, I vaguely recall that Bedford was not too bad when we've done it before, quite often a disclaimer form is filled in on the day. I am sure you are aware that it can not be hand held, I think that is general rule for all venues. And some places are pickier than others about the quality of the mounts. As at silverstone one time they rejected our home made mount even though we had used it at other places with no problems.
    You could email LoT to see if they have camera rules for bedford. Or just bring the camera with you on the day anyway.

    Tamsin's right - cameras have to be securely mounted and the mount will be checked before they allow you out on circuit. These days, I'd be surprised if you could get away with anything that was home-made. It's fair enough really - a camera is a lethal projectile if you are unfortunate enough to hit a barrier and it's probably your head that would be in the way :eek: Generally, these rules are getting more carefully enforced as time goes by. If you've got a proper mount, your best bet is to mention it when you sign-on and they will tell you whether you need to sign an additional indemnity and how to get the mount checked.
