Good for you! I won't start my Montreal thread until I've got tickets in hand.

If i wasnt so hooked on Silverstone and in need of my yearly fix, Spa is the other one Id go to. Being a teacher i cant get time off so Silverstone is easiest for me.

I can advise on seats, travel and camping. Look on the Silverstone website and you'll see the seats available and the prices. Let me know what you're intrested in.

There arent many that beat Silverstone for the track. And for atmosphere its definately in the top league.

I dont agree with you about the track but in terms of atmosphere you are right. And it was a joke by the way.

Its just kinda boring. Yeah sure the long straights allow overtaking and stuff but from driving it (obviously not in real life) its not very exciting, definitely not in my top 5 tracks.
