Image It's a cruel thing, PSD :D

Rockingham does have camping but for some reason they said it was unavailable. The place I have been talking about is Billing Aquadrome which is about 1/2 hour drive from the track. It's where the Landy Rally is evry year and they said we can have the pitches at rally rate which is £13 p/n per pitch plus £4 if you want leccy

There's a thread on here somewhere that suggests the West Mercia Fronty is retired. That said I'm pretty sure I've seen a one on the M62, although I'm not sure if it belongs to Greater Machester or West Yorks.

I was wondering if it might be worth one of the organisers posting a question on http://www.askthe.police.uk/Content/@1.htm along the lines of 'are there any police forces that operate fronteras that would like to enter them in our world record attempt?'.

Might be worth a try?
