Just a word of warning. If you're driving to Shoreham for the open this weekend please allow plenty of time.

It is Gay Pride, Brighton this weekend and Ride London which means there are potential road closures around Dorking on the A24 and the M23/A23 will be busy.

First start not until 2.00pm on Saturday, so plenty of time to get to sunny Shoreham...Forecast looking great!!
