I doubt you can. As I said you can see Club from the road outside, but not sure if you can see any other parts of the track from the roads outside

If the Dunlop Tower still existed it might be possible. It more or less faced the right direction.

The track is covered by Street View. A 'virtual' lap might confirm if the SnoZone can be seen.

Yeah. If you are on the inside and can see to the side of the maggots grandstand. Or if you are in that grandstand and look out of the back of it.

You can. I have.

Don’t worry, I doubt anyone will sit on the top of the snozone and watch the GP. It’s about ten miles away!

I do hope someone can verify this on google maps otherwise my integrity will be shot to pieces.

Although there isn't a need to confirm it as I've seen it. Attached, a photo taken at the 2018 WEC race. Snozone dome on the horizon. Not in focus as I was trying to focus on the car, although fencing makes that difficult.

You can also go skydiving, shopping or watch a film there. I believe google will verify that the complex is called Xscape.

Think they should take a leaf out of the Red Bull Ring's book but rather than the "GP of Northants" go with the "GP of Towcester".

Would throw up heaps of different pronunciations. Those from the UK would of course pronounce it "toaster", but those from other countries would have a range of different ideas, such as "t ow sester", "t ow chester", "tow sester" etc etc.

Looks like you were on the exit of Stowe for that one - and yep, that's the XScape dome alright. All the years I've spent on track and I've never spotted it in the distance!
