    interesting post Graham, dates noted and could well wander up there.

    and no need for ear protection. Wonder if emf from cars will affect cameras?

      All the dates are mid-week, so not ideal for a group meet. However, I might consider going myself on Wednesday 9th July and anyone else who can make it will of course be welcome. I'll know nearer the time. Thanks for the heads-up, Graham.

        I've sent a PM to Mark Thackara to see if he is interested in using this for an Olympus event or becoming involved with Formula E in some way.

          Hi everyone!

          That looks really good - and not too far from me either! The only problem is that with working nights I will be attending rather than sleeping, but I'd love to see those cars in action.

          I've just had a look at registering an interest on the Donnington site but it doesn't appear to be up yet - I'll keep an eye on this thread and on the donnington site to see when you can register. Thanks to Graham for bringing it to my attention.

          Cheers,

          Ralph.

            Difficult to commit yet as the dates are mid week but it's very close and free so I will certainly try to make a visit sometime. Thanks for the heads up I hope it takes off as a formula.

              Thanks for posting that.
              I can go on August 19th, or perhaps one of the earlier dates. I've never been to Donnington, but it's most certainly on the bucket-list: the historic Grand Prix car collection is stunning and worth a visit at any time:

                Hi Ralph, I found it mentioned somewhere on the Donington website that details for registering would be up soon, so we just need to keep a look out for it.

                The race in London in June 2015 should also be good, they are launching this formula in a big way!

                      I just registered too - not sure which day I'll be able to go though yet.

                        Thanks for the heads up, I've registered for all July dates too. I've always fancied a walk around the museum so this is an added excuse to go.
                        Thanks

                            I've not been to Donnington before, judging by a lot of EXIF on Flickr 300mm will be ample. I'm hopefully going Wednesday weather permitting. Batteries on charge
                            Thanks

                              I signed up for all the dates too but unfortunately I can only make the August one now. I didn't get any acknowledgement from them I'd registered though so I'm not sure if the registration was actually taken.
