I believe entrance 1 is the main entrance which is the tarmac road down to what is the normal car park area. Entrance 2 is the hard-core track nearer to the factory Q gate.
Yes, I've found it now. It's just a little way further down Lowhill Lane, opposite the left turn for Groveley Lane. I was looking on Google Maps and followed the road the whole way round until I was on the south side of the park, where there's another entrance and a white pathway marked on the map. This is for pedestrians I think.

A good day & an excellent turn out; thank you to John & Jeremy who were doing sterling work organising the parking!

I had an enjoyable day, didn't get to speak to everybody, but spoke to a few non members in R8's parked on the hill. :)

Sorry to have only very briefly said hello! Hope to see you at the BMC & BL day at Gaydon on 7/7.

There was a drone above the show in the morning so keep an eye on YouTube and/or Facebook for footage - hopefully it saw our '30' :D
