Silverstone next year for sure, Id urge anyone that hasnt seen a live race GO DO IT, but camp, we stayed in a hotel that was transport nightmare, and our mates were camping and met eddie jordan and partied and everything, was the only bad thing about our trip, so yeh, SILVERSTONE next year who's coming :drink:

I'm in village A. I got early bird and Loyalty discounts offered by Silverstone circuits . ( the latter was only on for a short time and finnished in July). I saved about 20%
Have you looked at booking direct with Silverstone? I think it's cheaper

I'm always up for a meet up! Met Stonemoneky last year and have met others in the past.

No, general admission same price and copse a bit dearer, im looking at booking 4 in copse grandstand for 190 each at the mo (unless there's anyway i could pay you and you could get them cheaper ;) )

:rofl: :rofl: no, though they called it loyalty discount, anyone could get it if they booked, but it was only on for a couple of weeks or so after last Silverstone. I can recommend village A for the view, really good.

It's always surprising to me even though YOU KNOW... when you see F1 practice and it ends, and a support race starts up they just look slow, whether it's a Porsche or Ferrari cup race, it's like... it that it?
