Car Parking is now not available to buy in advance. It can be bought on the day.

there will be traffic problems travelling from the south west so give yourself a bit extra time if thats your route,take an over night bag also, even after many years of trying cheltenham are still useless at getting cars away after racing.

Whose bright idea was it to stage both Cheltenham & Worcester on the same afternoon?
Report jimnast November 11, 2021 9:54 AM GMT
probably the same people who took ludlow of the rota today so many of those who liked to do bangor ludlow cheltenham can no longer do it.

That's what you get when 'the market' decides, in this case the courses themselves. It's weird, in the 80's the generation (you lot) that introduced the concept of 'the market' running everything it was all going to be so much better and the consumer would be the ultimate winner. It doesn't seem to have worked out that way and this is a decent example - the energy market being the other obvious one. Another **** up to add to your legacy. Enjoy the racing!

Friday probably the worst day due to town centre traffic

Your making me have second thoughts coming from the South, might train it after all.
Report jimnast November 11, 2021 11:57 AM GMT
If you are only going for the day jj the train has to be better the bus goes to the station from the course it also leaves you free to have a celebratory drink if you back a few winners.not to mention the ridiculous stress driving on a Friday causes in England.

Worcester is staging the meeting originally scheduled for Southwell, where the re-laying of the AW track has taken longer than planned.

There is an option to avoid the leaving traffic after the last race, which is to stay and watch the auction of Irish point to point horses which starts at 4:30. Might spot a future champion, certainly see the rich at play throwing vast sums around to acquire something that plodded 3M round a field in Ireland!

£70 for the Friday in October in a cheap contractor hotel

£400 for the same cheap hotel on Sat night - madness but someone is paying these prices

And all’s these clowns suggesting staycations the hotel costs in this country are outrageous.

I’m an AM and not going either. Found a gaff for £65 PN for The Showcase and the same place is £265 for this meeting.
Bula meeting is marginally cheaper so going down then instead.
