Where did u park ?

were there tomorrow too !!!!

fab day! we got there at 8:15 and left at 3pm - great day and would def recommend arriving early as it's less packed. Also, if you want to test drive the cars, you need to get in VV early - i took a megane coupe gt round a test track with an ex racing driver - not like your normal "test drive" and absolutely brill.

We're planning to spend the full weekend there next year

Also, we parked in Silverstone race track itself and as said, as we arrived early and left around 3 ish, absolutely no probs with any traffic!

Might get there super early now, would'nt mind driving a car around the track. Free parking ?

Parking is free at the track tomorrow. We went today got there about 12 traffic/parking wasn't that bad for us people coming from the M1 said it was a nightmare.

ill be coming from the M1 as well :(. hoping to get there before 10 so hopefully should be ok. Do kids need to have a ticket as well? Or are they just admitted with every adult ticket?

was there today been the last 2 years also. Was very windy and cold today so bring some warm clothing even though it was sunny! Some good races and a couple of crashes also!

as for the m1 thing yup it was pretty manic that way met up with some peeps who came form the m40 and they had no issue.

the renault simulator looks awesome also, it's a fully pneumatic racing seat with 3 screen set up maaaaasive queues for it though so good luck getting on it if you're thinking of doing it.

In the sun it was nice and warm, I even got a little pink on the cheeks. In the shade of the grand stands however it was freezing cold.

I was with the father and brother in law, we left just after Renault 2.0 finished as they didn't seem to be enjoying it as much as me.
