We'll be attending the Silverstone Classic again this year. You can buy discounted "Earlybird" ticket before the end of March using code SCC16076.
As part of our 40th celebrations we will be able to participate in a track parade which will include GTP002 and other significant 924's. I don't know on which day(s) the parade will take place, but will keep you all informed with details as I receive them.

Any idea on the cost of the parade lap this time Ian? I don't think ill make it this year due to the cost of the planned france trip to le mans - being led around by the GTP would be awesome though!!

There's been no mention of any charge for the parade lap - I'll try to find out a.s.a.p.

For the silver cars parade lap last time year it was pretty expensive I thought - think it was about £80 or something. I missed the application date for it anyway but I hope it would be much cheaper this year. :hope:

I hope the organisation of the parade lap is better than the 911 2 years ago.
Couldn't hold a :booze: in a brewery.

At the Lemans Classic the parade laps costs around £165. You usually get two but it has been known to be three....and the pace car hid :shock:
