I'm back in the UK when this is on. Not sure what day/days to buy tickets for, any recommendations? How does it work with joining the other 924s on the infield? It would be a first club event for me so just want to know how it works.

In general I find that Friday works best for pottering around the paddocks as there is no racing (just practice and qualy) and less people and Saturday / Sunday for watching racing. On Sunday teams / entrants start leaving early as their races finish. I usually do just Friday and Saturday.

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:


The pace car wont need to hide, don't many of us would keep up with it if they give it some right foot :party:

So £70 gets 2 of us into the Silverstone Classic for the Saturday and the parade lap, aren't we suppose to be at the other event :whistle: :woohoo: Can you be in two places at once......

Better fire up the Go-Pro in that case.

Just ignore that Pete, having a brain fart today, too busy getting prepped for an important meeting tomorrow and not reading things properly :whistle:

Will get booked up providing I'm not on holiday.

Whoop whoop! I just booked for the Saturday looking forward to it, not that cheap though £72 in total with entrance and infield display pass.

Unfortunately, I'm already booked to attend an event here in Brittany. Its a combined Jazz Festival and Car Show, which I attend as an interloper with the West Midlands MG Club. Usually a good laugh, but missing a parade lap following the GTP is a real bummer! Also, don't want to push my luck with MOH as already coming to Silverstone and going to the Le Mans Classic!
