It was OK when the sun came round and warmed the lower half of the stand. Colder tomorrow I guess..I thought it a really good day - the National circuit is so much better for a spectator because the lap is so short. Even a grid of 20 looks busy enough. The view from the stand is pretty good too - at least by Silverstone standards, the paddock was full of lovely stuff and you get to park right alongside. Excellent value as well at £15 for the weekend, booked in advance. Looking forward to Sunday

Nice way to end my season.

Unimpressed with the actions of Silverstone in fencing off 2/3rds of Luffield terrace and the infield from Luffield to Brooklands for the "Experience" punters. A mid morning arriving HSCC spectator was told by the security at the main gate that Luffield terrace was closed and to drive over both bridges and use the BRDC grandstand.

As a paying punter I was not happy, neither were members of Silverstone Racing club season ticket holders losing much of the spectating area.

If that is the policy when I return in the Spring then the circuit will be crossed off my calendar.

I didn't get to Luffield until lunch time having been round at Club and Becketts earlier. I simply walked on to the "punters" section as usual near the sausage vendor.

I only found the locked gate in the fence when I wanted to then move round to the exit of Luffield. Rather than walk the long way round, I managed to climb over the fence where it was thankfully low enough. Mind you but then the punters had largely gone.

Just a little inconvenient for me but rather unnecessary. On the other hand, some "eff wun" punters (huge assumption there, oops !) might have been turned on to historics, especially if they saw the brilliant FF race.

Otherwise, an enjoyable day and galleries will be posted on Flickr in due course and notified here.

Brands - yes agree on the fencing, it looks permanent to me and guess only moved for gp and classic. Silverstone have never really helped spectators I donít understand why all banks are closed to cars
Anyway back to this meeting - some good entries and races. What has happened to the saloon series ? Entry seemed very small and no imps
Ruldolf thanks for ticket

I can get over the fence where the disabled area is with ease but we saw several shorter people struggle and it's only a matter of time before someone ends up on the concrete with arm or head damage. Then H & S will kick in.

I'm not sure whether the idea is to keep us spectators away from that area or to keep the Experience punters from escaping after their show as they are meant to buy a entry ticket if they wish to watch the motor racing post the Experience, if a minor meeting is running. If it's a major meeting you have to buy a ticket for both to gain access regardless.

The VSCC Spring start is usually my first Sillystone event of the year, so they have plenty of time to answer my email questions

As to the HSCC meeting, some cracking racing and most of the grids were a decent size. I look forward to the pics.

Thankfully a dry day today but cold throughout. The Formula Ford 4 way dice for the lead brought a loud collective gasp from the BRDC stand crowd as one of the Merlyns took to the grass in a big way approaching the braking area on the last lap but the driver saved it magnificently. He got a standing ovation on the slow down lap.
The Guards Trophy race was interesting as Mike Gardiner's Griff held the Chevron B8 and Lotus 23 at bay until a safety car interlude. How he fell back to 5th at the end was a mystery.

I think he was sharing with Josh Cook ( BTCC) in the Griffith.

He was.
Still a mystery as they fell from 1st to 5th.

It's an awful place to visit and spectate. Wherever you want to go there seems to be chickenwire fencing in your way for no apparent reason. Great meeting though.

Gardiner pitted at the earliest opportunity to hand over to Cook. Fairly soon after, there was a safety car period in which most other cars took their stops/driver changes. This meant that they were able to rejoin the back of the safety car train, leaving the TVR at the front and, on track, the best part of a lap down. I'm not sure why, but no car was released from the front of the train before the track went green.

I do wonder sometimes if I would go there as often as I do if it was more than half an hour door to door ...

Cracking video!

A bit disconcerting at first never having seen any camera shots quite like that before.

Must find out what the camera can do - presumably it is automated rather than driver controlled ...

... Ah, OK, it records everything and the file can then be edited to provide a more story like final output.
