Email from Silverstone regarding Luffield terrace and surrounding area:

So sorry that you were unable to access an area of the circuit during your visit as you would usually do.
The areas on the outfield are not open to the public for this event, car parking is by the national paddock and viewing is from the BRDC stand and the infield at copse. It would seem that you have accessed areas in the past that are not operational at the club meetings.
The area that you are asking of is now part of the Silverstone Heritage trail and will be a permanent addition to the Silverstone Experience. It will not be open at all events however.

Depending on what event you are looking to book, check the What’s Included section. This was the description from this weekend just gone.

We hope to see you again soon

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
• Free roving BRDC grandstand seating
• Free access to the paddock
• Free parking
• Live commentary on 87.7FM
• Children aged 15 & under can attend for free


Seems I and others have been spectating and parking in the wrong place for the past 20+ years. Bye Silverstone.

Bit tough on SRC members ... have they been told or are they “different” ?

Very strange decision.

Does this mean that ALL of the Luffield terracing is closed? I normally stand by the passage under the grandstand at the exit of Luffield (just behind the marshals' post) as you get a good view of Brooklands, luffield & Woodcote.

Shoud be interesting for the Watler Hayes Trophy in a couple of weeks if that is the case...

Silverstone and the paying public

I'm afraid Silverstone basically don't want anybody to spectate at club meetings - haven't done for years.
Never understand why you can't park the car on the inside bank at Copse - please don't say health and safety

Interesting - 750MC this weekend is the same restricted access as above; Walter Hayes has more grandstands open and appears to be back to closer to normal.

Mark, You are right and the answer to that is simple.

Usually, at club meetings, the takings from the gate are slim and dont even cover the cost of cleaning up the place after the event.
Hence all the closed grandstands....

MSV take a bit of a more balanced approach, and look at the bigger picture, typical Dr Palmer, which is why he is successfull and the BRDC isnt....
they are are aware the speccies at club meetings are more a liability than the source of an income stream, buuuut
MSV consequently go out of their way to maximise that income stream by addional offers of merchandise and whatnots

example: ATM ?, yes at Brands Hatch, none at Silverstone

aaaaand they seem to think that tracks which generate noise but dont see many visitors lose their acceptance in society, dooming them in the long run

Absolutely agree re MSV. Having not been to Snetterton for many years and regardless of what you think of the revised track layout, the spectator experience is much improved including the approach and attitude of the staff. Likewise the other MSV properties. Bravo Dr P

I've never been to Snetterton but that should hopefully change this weekend for GT Cup which is there. Eager to see how it compares and also my dad hasn't been there for nearly 2 decades so looking forward to it.

10 days we have attended Silverstone this year and only the Classic is a major event, the rest are proper clubbie meetings.
So I get to save 7 days worth of tickets, 3 hotel nights and 800 miles travelling.

Sillystone's lost is Combe, Thruxton, Prescott and Gurstons gain.

A true Heritage Trail would open up the original Woodcote - now that would be worth watching.

One day in any of your four places is worth two days at Silverstone. So you are getting four days for free!

I recommend the “breakfast baguette” in the Tyrrell’s Restaurant!

Absolutely nothing to do with HSCC Finals, Andy! But you’re spot on about Tyrrells (at Snett)- One of the best cafeteria / restaurants at any circuit.

Cheers Andy. Apologies if I shouldn't have mentioned Snetterton on a Silverstone weekend thread. Just thought it related in some form..
