Looks like it's me then doing the arranging seeing as I'm 23. :P

I'll be there in time for P1, depending what time people are getting there for we could all meet up after GP2 free practise for some lunch and then watch P2 and GP2 qualifying together in the afternoon. Then we could have a stoll around the circuit, do a bit of shopping and then later in the evening meet up for either a beer or a boogie.

It would also be easy if we had each other's mobile numbers so we can keep tabs on where everyone is etc, so PM me your number if interested (I've got yours already Racechick ;)).

I'm the stranger in the night carrying the massive flag pole with the saltire on top.
I'll be easy to spot if you guys set a date.

Right, so we're set then, FP2 and GP2 qualifying and then meeting up later on too maybe when Racechick gets to Silverstone. We can plan out Saturday and Sunday when we meet up.

Now the question is where we should meet up, if they hadn't moved the BMW Pit Lane Park to Manchester this year we could have met up there. How about Copse meeting point at about 1:30pm and we watch P2 and GP2 qualifying from one of the copse stands? :)

I think the Terrace would do nicely, facing down the pit straight so we can get a good view of the cars flying through Copse as well and hitting the rumble strip. :)

Why don't we all just sit in the stand on either the Pit Straight or Copses? Meet up by the start finish line at like 1.00, go do some shopping together, then go to a stand, watch the session and take some pictures :D
