For anyone attending Silverstone, take the weather forecast and basically half the predicted temperature and thats what it will feel like.

Oh, and it's cold, windy and raining!

Moose, 'passes' for competitors are in fact full weekend wristbands, and nothing spare in this camp, I'm afraid.
Mike I suspect that the unpleasant traffic levels are somewhat, though not entirely, related to all of the "smart" road improvements that seem to be going on.

Google maps has recently taken to sending me local traffic information (not sure why) but it's mostly bad news and most of the time.

Does anyone know at what time one can drive into the circuit after the days racing, I am particularly interested in Friday evening?

Not sure I can be bothered with the next two days, the Classic should be renamed The Silverstone Celebrity, the organisers seem more concerned with second rate soap/sports/musical 'stars' than actual racing drivers/cars.

Any clapped out pop singer from 1960 is sure of a welcome, but one preparer I know, running three cars, can not even get their van into the circuit and have been issued 3 wrist bands.

Daft I call it! The only attraction worth the effort of going is Delta's barbecue.

Disgusted of Luton.

No probs Mike, I guessed passes would be thin on the ground.

Hmm, I should maybe have checked ticket prices before agreeing to go with a mate after he lured me by the promise of riding shotgun in his Superbee

Perhaps I should don a purple wig and pretend to be a celeb/pop star as per Bauble's comments.

FYI advance ticket sales only I believe, up to Thurs pm but I think you can buy online and collect at the circuit.

And Mike, the Superbee is an ex race car too (yes really!!)

As long as you bring a contribution to the barbecue (drinks) or the prize draw you would be welcome. Just don't come empty handed.
