Luffield is a great place to get photos - several angles, cars are slow, can shoot over the fence. If I only had an hour, I'd spend it there.

But yes, there are other good places to view and photograph from all around the circuit. The great thing about this weekend is that some of the best grandstands - Club, Becketts, Abbey - are open, have unallocated seating and aren't busy.

Enjoyed today walking round the perimeter of the circuit with a long in the paddock on the way round, probably the best day value wise only being 15 for a full day of action where as Sunday is 45 for just Carrera Cup race & a 4 hour WEC

FWIW they have left a bench near vale which you can stand on and look over the fence, spent most the first session there this morning

Thanks for the FYI about the bench I tend to get the 3 day ticket, but we're only 25 minutes away from Silverstone

I do like Club and then the Loop.. but any unhindered view of the track is usually good

The non-sun wasn't so bad. We were standing in front of the disabled G/S at Club (as no G/Ss were open at Club) and we were shielded from it, but it didn't last long. The forecast seems to be for no non-sun today.....

I did something similar at Copse on Saturday - the (closed) grandstand provided enough of a shield from the rain, but I could still get a good view of the track.

As for the last part - how wrong you were. Walking down the Wellington Straight I'd seen the shower coming towards Luffield and tracked it on a weather radar app, so got to the Woodcote grandstand in good time

We had plenty of time at Copse to prepare for the non sun. It arrived at Club first then tracked diagonally across the circuit to us.

I changed to full wets with about 10 minutes to spare

Well great weekend, meet most of those i expected at the circuit over the 3 days, racing was good although as stated a little lacking in actual races, however plenty of action in all three, porkies, elms and wec. Most give a thumbs up to the vintage wall of death show in the fan zone, brilliant and to see a vintage set up with all the shaking and noise as 1920's indian scouts ran feet from you was amazing. Weather was kind the guys in the white vans were brilliant on friday and saturday taking us about although on sunday the same vans just stat around and were not prepared to do anything. Hope everyone who attended also had as good a time

Definitely a great weekend, although I somehow missed seeing you Simon, sorry! I did bump into a few of the usual crowd though I had my youngest in tow and a friend of mine with his two youngest and they struggled slightly in terms of interest - so I managed to miss quite a bit of the racing, but did do quite a bit of the fanzone stuff which was interesting and all free! :O So in that sense it was a very relaxed race meeting for me. We did see most of the WEC race and quite a bit of the ELMS race but I missed large chunks of the early sessions.. We were lucky enough to get ELMS paddock passes which seemed a bit of an anachronism but they were via G Drive and JEV (my eldest son entered an instagram competition and won them on the Friday - he was very stoked!) and so we gained access to their garage and the grid walk! I'll post some photos later on today.

A great season opener but a real shame that Ginetta seem to be behind the curve again - especially after all the pre-race bluster that was posted and their big push for 'fan access' and doing it for the fans. Although they did seem to find their feet around 2/3 way through the race. They ended up with one decent position at the end of the race but it could have been so much more. They need to be quick to keep the Rebellions honest.

All the LMP1 cars were so quick through the corners but the Toyotas just seem to defy the laws of physics!! They seemed happy to overtake round the outside or inside of other cars on track.

Now I feel that I should be trying to go to other rounds of the WEC, but work might get in the way of that...

Yes, a good day yesterday, although I left with an overall feeling of having been cheated - only four hours and it seemed as though the race ended when it was only two-thirds of the way through. I didn't expect to miss the extra two hours, but I did.

Precipitation - barely significant and it wouldn't be Silverstone without a little of the wet stuff and/or wind.

Didn't see anyone - a lthough I think I spotted Andrew at around 2.30 at the picnic tables on the approach to Luffield. That hat's a giveaway!
