Leeds is a good choice. Not very far from the track and plenty of good eating places. Would have stayed there myself but ended-up at Guesthouse Inn just outside the track. Hope to be able to have dinner with you if that's OK.
Looks like a really good entry for Barber - 495 including a couple from across the pond! Unfortunately only 5 in my class but they usually run us with other classes so still should be fun.
See that Pat McGraw has entered in the 500 Sportsman class but didn't see Sonic Twin. Mind you looked over the entry list very fast before reporting in so might have missed him.
Really getting excited about it.
P.S. Sorry you couldn't bring a bike
