.. We still have one last race at Silverstone and I assume that's the one pottsy was referring to. I think it depends on what type of ticket you have and how you are getting to the circuit.

lol im sorry my bad, with all the news being about doninnington i totally forgot about the race this year

i would say early and pretty early the traffic around silverstone is a complete nightmere, and i have known a few people that have missed some parts.

My boyfriend and I have general admission tickets, so no guaranteed seat or anything. We're planning to get there early afternoon on Friday and set up the tent at a campsite which is apparently 5 minutes from the track. For the Saturday and Sunday, though, we (or, I should say, I :D), are planning on getting to the track for whenever the gates open in the morning (so pretty early, I guess - Matt is not impressed with this lol). If you've got grandstand seats you'll have noting to worry about and can pretty much turn up whenever, but with GA it's every man/woman for themselves to grab the best spot :D

If if was you i'd aim to get there between 9 and 10. That is if you have grandstand seats.

If not, then early as possible.
