I know! Never been anything like that in all the years Ive camped there. But we survived and still had a great weekend. And the farmer had these on hand to help out if needed.

Ive not watched from that stand but I did watch in 2003 from there on general entry, first corner then of course! It was a great view and an epic race. Non stop action that year.

Loved it!! Despite mud and rain. From a girl who groanned if it was a race Sunday, she now watches most races and has been to two Silverstones. :D
