I'm planning on getting there early all three days. The leaflet Silverstone sent me says you need to be at the circuit by 930 and parked by 10. There is no movement allowed of the cars between 10 and 5.

Ah, ok, thanks Ed. The tickets have gone to my brothers due to moving house.

They seemed pretty relaxed previously but I guess it's a gamble to assume they will be relaxed again this year!!

They do normally allow you to move but the rule was always that you couldn't. No one is really stopping you moving about.

That was two years ago when our pitch was by the main entrance road, This year we're at the far end of Grey 13 overlooking Brooklands with a lot of other clubs between us and the entrance, so vehicle movements may be a bit more difficult.

Afternoon all,
In trying to pull out all the stops to get my car there with its newly full body respray and wheel refurb I have failed.
The car won't be ready till next week.
Will still be going to the show but unfortunately not in my trusted 924, big shame but looking forward to seeing all the he others that do make it.
See you tomorrow gents!
Witty.

Please pop over and see us for a chat.

It was a windy and quite cold day today having been lovely and sunny when I arrived. Dress for all British weathers!

Shame the Porsche Classic red & white turbo couldn’t get the correct Classic 924 font for its number plate. And don’t get me started on the red pinstripe :whistle:
