    Re: SILVERSTONE CLASSIC 26-28 AUG 2022

    Am I reading it correctly on the Silverstone site that it's £125 for a weekend pass including a vehicle display pass?

    Help for a newbie...
    Is there a full weekend's worth of "stuff" to see and do there?
    If you get the display pass, do you have to be there early each day and stay to the end or is it similar to how Stoneleigh seemed to be.
    Anything else to know?

    There's track action pretty much non stop Jim. You might not want to watch every one but I always enjoy the saloon car races. There's a bus service to hop on and off to get you round the various stands too. Some better than others. There's a trade village too that takes a few hours to get around and the pits are accessible which is great to see big and small teams operating.
    If your car is on display you're expected to be in by 9 or 10 I think and stay until the end of the day. But quite a few tend to head off from midday on the Sunday, it's not like they lock the gates to stop you getting out.
    Finding a place to stay is a consideration too. Hotels nearby are probably fully booked so you end up further afield. Just make sure your chosen place has a safe car park! Or you can camp, especially if you like the music line up. There's plenty going on in the evenings, the Woodlands Campsite has a great shower block, pub on site and there are plenty of interesting cars parked up with owners who are only too happy to talk! I usually camp but if you think your car got mucky the other day.. If it rains the mud/clay gets everywhere. I swear I'm still cleaning it out of nooks and crannies. It can get cold at night too!

    I'll book the weekend ticket soon and make a decision on coming/hotel when the music line up is announced.

    Thanks Guy, that's really helpful.
    I'll go for the weekend ticket.

    I've intended to go a few times with a group of Ultima friends but never got round to it. I was aware that they all stay in a hotel near Hinkley which is about 45 mins drive away. I'd never really given much thought to whether that was far away or not. I camped in a one-man tent at Stoneleigh one year for the weekend having driven down in the Ultima and I'm not sure I could walk upright for a week when I got home so unless the music line-up includes Pink Floyd being supported by Slade and Queen then I'll take the comfy bed option.

    I think the idea is to take an inflatable mattress and a doss bag, rather than sinking 10 pints and throwing y'self down on the bare earth and assuming it'll get softer in inverse proportion to the beer
    Last time I did that was in Newquay, 1974, and I'm still not sure I dare return to Cornwall
