Context is all . The breakfasts I most enjoy are the flat white and bacon and egg roll I treat myself to at 7-30am on each morning of the Silverstone Classic, following a spirited , 20 mile top down drive over deserted country roads from my B and B . An English summer day (sometimes)and a thousand racing cars to perv over , what could be better ? Apart from the circuit , obvs ....

Almost given up, Iain. Agree Combe is good although I always enjoyed the Snet grub best.

controversial post, but i think donington is better than snetterton now with oulton a very close second. snetterton does the basics well, but lacks the off-piste options that are usually pretty tasty, particularly if your diet is mostly circuit food...

Croix-en-Ternois certainly can - the frites are excellent, though maybe not for breakfast. The service is super friendly too.

Croix is half British, hence the warm welcome…*

Nice long lunch break as well, or at least there was when I was there!

Croix food was fantastic when we were there around the turn of the millenium. A real multi course dinner a l'auberge style laid on for competitors.


The toilets were another matter though!

Dijon lunchtime must be the best in France - there was a GRANDE PROBLEME M'SIEU with scrutes over my roll cage which evaporated (the problem, not the roll cage) when it was pointed out that it was lunchtime. No idea what the food is like though.


Going back to the beginning, Mallory was always great. Turned up for breakfast at a track day many years ago but no-one had told the ladies there was an event on and the cafe was shut. They arrived very flustered but within 20 mins it was up and running and full English on the plates. Talk about fast food!

I can't speak for breakfast, but I always looked forward to dinner in the Cadwell Clubhouse whenever I couldn't make it to the track until after work. Sadly they will never quite be the same: http://news.cadwellpark.co.uk/joan-tribute.aspx

Interesting reading that tribute and in particular JP's final words which echo everything I've always thought; despite his privileged position Mr Palmer is a very hands on CEO making sure he pays attention to every detail of the MSV operation. I'm not angling for a free pass next year(although I wouldn't turn it down!) but credit where credit's due. The turn around in circuit operation since MSV took control is quite astounding.

Don't know about the best food, but the worst has to be pre-reopening Goodwood - grey burgers that even the seagulls wouldn't eat, and half frozen & half burnt pies.

The dinner is still possible & the toilets have been excellent for at least 15 years to my knowledge.
