Small housekeeping moment. The SC has now become Silverstone Circuits Limited event. Goose Live Events is the event management company for the event, so externally will appear the same, but explains the change of logo/identity over the winter. Ticket and hospitality sales are now direct with Silverstone Circuits via their website.

Hmmmm, event organiser can't pay the track rental bill because of pandemic, track owner takes the IP ownership as payment? Event organiser then does cut price deal to continue organising as part of the consideration?

I believe GLE had the event under licence from SCL previously, so it made the SC 'their' event under the licence (effectively leased out I imagine) but the ultimate event name/rights belonged to SCL, who now have it 'back'. I am sure the event will appear the same for 2021, only potential changes ahead will be if SCL's p/l ambitions for the event are different from those GLE had, I guess.

It's a nervous time for any big event organiser. I can see why Glastonbury cancelled, it's easier to avoid incurring costs. The knock-on to the local community is huge too - hotels, B&Bs, food suppliers, casual workers, they all earn from big events like the Classic. That's a lot of responsibility on the organisers' shoulders and the situation can change at the whim of a ministerial pen. Good luck to them.

I just went to book some tickets as they emailed me a reminder that the 'early bird' prices ending tomorrow, and I was shocked at the price. So much so I didn't buy any.

They must be trying to recover the costs of last year as well.

I'm not sure they'll get many people who aren't showing cars turning up at those prices.

I had a similar thought when I looked at the price.......£39 for a Friday ticket...£67 for Saturday or £53 for Sunday......oh and £10 for a programme.....
