    With Bridgestone being at the festival I assume selling tyres, would they have facilities to change them there for a fee?

    Apparently not according to a post I saw answered during the week... puncture repairs will be done on site but no new tyre fitting service offered...

    Will there be a Waitrose at the camping site? Or perhaps a Lidl for us Honda riders?

    Who knows, but I have another cracking 2 hour ride to a weekend away. Bonus is as I'll be leaving from 13 miles outside London, close to the M4 I'll be hooning my way there through lovely Cotswold roads without having to fight much traffic first. I'll probably test ride something but not sure what. If you test ride, is it on your own on the roads outside or only in the grounds off road? Or is there a test ride leader. Heaven forbid a ride captain!

    Test rides are conducted and guided by manufacturers riders
    In 2019 all the Ducati were Italian registered (great for speed cameras) and tours guided by Italian factory staff

    Dear chap this is Waitrose we are speaking about. They have neither car parking nor speed bumps. However they do have vehicle rest facilities accessible via driveways equipped with calming undulations.....how very dare you.

    In the FAQs
    "Can I get my tyres changed at the Festival?
    There is tyre repair available but not a tyre changing service, please arrive with your preferred tyres already fitted."
