Giba should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
All three days for me for one of the best meetings of the year.

Sadly can't go to any of the evening events as Buckingham is a trek from Northampton but sure will see familiar faces during the weekend and meet new ones at the Sunday meet.


Also people it's Silverstone, so you should be prepared for wind and rain and I so I don't want to see any posts about people being surprised at the weather over the weekend

*gets off soapbox*

Let's be fair, Giba - I'm a Northants boy born and bred, but every single time I've ever been to Silverstone, I've always been one layer short, no matter how much I try to over-compensate.

Even the Michelin man has goosebumps on the grid at Silverstone.

It could have been the Michelin man, but could also have been someone who had 17 layers on and still wasn't warm enough!

Won't stop me being there on both Saturday and Sunday though.

Was talking to someone at brands today and he said that ford and giving a discount for silverstone tickets, he said they had a code you use to get 25% discount, unfortunately i have already got mine but worth investigating if you have not got yours yet

If that's the case worth doing. Not begrudging the price of Silverstone but knocking 25% off may well make it that bit more appealing.

Now if we can just sort weather like it was today I suspect we'll be very pleased indeed.

Good point, I just hope the main topic of conversation on the Sunday evening is the race itself


On a slightly different note, went to the cinema at the weekend in Northampton and before the movie there was an advert for the WEC event. It's good to see a bit more publicity for the event and targeted to the general public as well.

Tried that code on Silverstone's site but it doesn't appear to work

Thanks, might be cutting it fine with postage though I put that code in and received the message that it was invalid.

When and where? If not on duty, would be nice to meet a few 10thers.

We usually have a meet up in the club grandstand on Sunday around 11.00 but also meet up friday and saturday evening for those staying locally, plus you always bump into people as you walk around
