WERM, don't drive to Hethel. Take the first train with an open return. If you have not yet been to the factory, that is certainly worth doing (I've been twice now and there is a good bit to see). But do not miss CTL. Clive Chapman is a very gracious and outgoing person. What's new there is Jim Clark's long-lost chassis they are restoring. They would not allow pictures of that chassis when I was there in May, but photos are allowed on all their other work. Be sure to ask Clive to introduce you to the mechanics. One of them wrenched for Clark in 1965.
Hope that helps,
