Am considering Barbon especially now no Gurston :(

But it is a long way away and looks quite short

For those that have been before is it worth  the long journey?

Rob,

I enjoyed it, and have entered again this year.

However, facilities are VERY basic, and the paddock does not have sealed surfaces (so, I'd imagine, keeping slicks clean could be a nightmare!).

The trailer parking areas can also be very unfriendly. There are many boulders hiding to catch the unaware (as I was last year, ripping a wheel arch liner out of my tow car! :-(  )  I'd recommend a foot reconnaissance before driving a car across any of track area!!

I enjoyed it a lot. 30 seconds of peril, and hope to go again this year. As Richard says, quite basic facilities, but a stunning place to visit in the sunshine.I camped at Harewood on the way back, and watched a morning of BHC there, which was good and split the journey.
I think we are at Barbon with the BHC, and that may be our only event sharing a billing. Good to watch some committed single seaters go up a narrow hill at speed, but of course they do faff about a bit...
