Hi All,

As newly appointed Midlands club rep I have started the ball rolling on securing club attendance at the 2018 Silverstone Classic which will provisionally take place over 20-22nd July next year.

The event has a lot to offer over the three days for the whole family, from racing to live music and much in between. Tickets don't go on sale until November so I am just getting in early to gauge the likely interest at this stage?

Thanks for leading the charge here Pete, I don't think we've had a stand at this show in recent years.

Early interest from me!

I am planning to go next year, missed the last one unfortunately but I usually go with the X19 club. If the Coupe is behaving itself, I would happily take that instead... Mainly because, after the last few I have been to, the Coupe is more water resistant than the X19! hehe
The campsite facilities are pretty good now, when I first started going, back when it was the Coys festival, they were a bit grim!
Earlybird club tickets are usually 2 weekend entrance passes plus a car pass for about £90 IIRC. Prices on the gate are about that per ticket per day! ooo

Count me in! I'll be going next year for all 3 days anyway and it would be great to go with the Coupe Club (always been with Ginetta Club before)
Never seen a Coupe there before and as Pete says it would be more waterproof that the Ginetta! laugh
Earlybird club tickets are 2 for one and discounted.

Full weekend for me too, usually set off early and call at the Rugby Truck stop on the A5 for a full breakfast to give me the energy to pitch the tent!

I have camped at Woodlands for the last few years, there is a decent selection of food outlets which don't cost the earth and saves on washing up, live music (until 11pm) and bar - along with a decent shower block big enough so your not waiting forever for a shower.
Litchlake is pretty good too to be fair, but it is a bit quieter and not as many facilities. Whittlebury Hall wasn't bad either but its a bit of a trek into the main area of the circuit and the queues to get the car in are worse due to the location.

Update regarding the Silverstone Classic 2018 as follows:

I have applied to register the club with the organisers and am waiting for them to send a specific code for FCCUK member use. One this arrives I will post an update.

In terms of pricing they are holding the 2017 price for those who book as 'super early bird' before 31/12/17, and I will post prices along with the code mentioned above.

For club bookings of 10 or more car club packages, the organisers can start to provide complimentary tickets for club members to use. In view of this I would like to gauge opinion from those interested as follows:

1) Do those intending to go wish to book their own tickets via the website? OR

2) Shall I collect the names and confirmation to attend and then complete a group booking?

Option 2 would be simpler for members, although there is a cut off date to ensure the best discount on the tickets.

More when I receive the code. A reminder of the provisional list so far

1) Ballypete (Full weekend)
2) Gunzi
3) Yellow_Peril
4) mikndo69
5) Stevo
6) DDouble
7) X19_Pilot (Full Weekend)
8) Ali_and_Marvin (Full weekend)
9) CC (Full weekend if I can)
10) petep- probably only one day
11) blueboyracer (Full weekend if I can)

I wouldn't bet on it Pete but she already chose Dom Rep for Honeymoon and Silverstone falls smack bang in the middle of the holiday. Hopefully Im home for a few other events this summer though and we manage to catch up with a few familiar faces from last year.
