Has a location and time been chosen for a 10/10th Meetup?

(Although from memory I always seem to miss it.)

There seems to be plenty of time between the Pit Walk and the start of the race this year (for those of us with no interest in single seaters).

I hope GTE Pro gets some TV time for this race since Toyota is the favorite to win overall

I think that's likely. But I really think that they will focus on the new LMP2 cars even though it's an all-Oreca affair.

The weather is looking a bit changeable for Friday and Saturday (as usual) - no snow forecast this time though!
Sunday looking to be the best with sun all day.

First timer this weekend, both at Silverstone and WEC. Going all 3 days and looking forward to it, after the 24 hours at Spa last year I'll be interested to see how it compares.

One question I have, has anyone stayed at the Premier Inn nearby? I'm not driving, so will be bus then walk from Silverstone. Not knowing the area, is it ok to walk from the village along the A43, or is it easier to walk through the woods where there appears to be a path?

I don't think so. I have a feeling it will be a case of bumping into each other! Quite a few of us are likely to be in the stand at Club looking down the straight at the start.....

Love to go but sorry to say it but the general admission costs are prohibitive - 25 for Saturday!! 45 for race day, no wonder there's nobody there! I am a big race fan having been to Le Mans many times and I would love to see the current breed of sports prototypes in the flesh but for this punter it"s a bit strong

No Kubica in the Kolles car, for the entire season it seems.

I get that completely. In isolation those admission prices do seem high. The value, in my opinion, is in the advance purchased weekend ticket at 50. Three full days trackside, five and a half hours of ELMS/WEC practice, qualifying for both, a four hour ELMS race and a six hour WEC race, plus the single seater action. Split the 50 between all of that, consider the cost of a ticket to a Premiership football match, a rugby international or a concert ticket, and maybe it's not so expensive after all. Have you seen what they charge for the Silverstone Classic!? That said, Le Mans general entry ticket prices do represent even better value, and the ancillary costs associated with attending all three days at Silverstone do mount up.

Regarding attendance, the event does draw a respectable, if unspectacular, crowd each year, especially on the Sunday.

I confess, I was disappointed to learn that Toyota and Porsche are taking different aero packages to Silverstone. Sounds like it's Toyota's race to lose.

Hugely looking forward to witnessing the new LMP2's though, with the added bonus of seeing Rebellion compete against 'real' competition for the first time in years. Can't wait!

You need to purchase tickets for this in June!! I kid you not. 40 for a 3 day ticket, including access to the pitlane walkabout on Sunday.

Although we're lucky as we live 25 minutes due south of the circuit.

Exactly. I bought my weekend ticket a few days after getting back from Le Mans last year. Brilliant value. I paid the same for that as I did for my lad's ticket just for the Sunday a few weeks ago.
