hi all,
If anyone has bought tickets for this event but can no longer attend, or knows somebody that is selling some please let me know as I would be very interested in buying them. I know they are still available from the Silverstone website but the boss (swmbo) has said they are too expensive frown therefore ill only get to go if I can find some discounted tickets.
thanks in advance
regards
nick

Unfortunately the display vehicle entry tickets are for a specific vehicle Nick.

You may have some luck with a general entry ticket, but it won't get your coupe onto the club stand though we will be pleased to see you anyway.

Hi Nick, Try having a look on Pistonheads
https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=65&t=1752276

Under Gassing Station under Events/Meetings/Travel Darreni was selling one weekend ticket for £75. A bargain if still available!

hi guys, just to let you know I have managed to get two tickets for Saturday for £50 each :-) , I believe the chap still has another two for sale if anybody else is looking for some & you can find them on ebay by just typing Silverstone classic in the search.
kind regards

Really cheeky question but is anyone going who has the laptop diagnostics and would they care to bring it along? There may be a liquid inducement involved .. wink

Is it too late to be added to this?

I'd like to attend on the Saturday if possible

It's too late to have your car on display, but you can still buy general entry tickets from Silverstone on line.

Here's a link.

Having never camped at Silverstone before - is it just a free for all? Weather's looking good :-)

If you are camping at Woodlands I am told it is really clean and well organised. Close to the circuit with a few shuttle bus and all the usual amenities

After years of b&bing locally, we camped at Litchlake Farm last year. We booked pre-pitched tents through Pillow Motorsport but there was a mix of tents and campervans on the site.

There's a footbridge from a corner of the field over the road to the circuit.

I don't know about Woodlands but Litchlake are saying they're booked up but there are a few spaces left first come first served. Here's a link...

I'm on the club package that includes the camping pitch so must state somewhere the location but unable to view them at the moment.

Cancel the above - I'm at woodlands so will have to get on the stand first then take my kit over to the pitch.

Peeps - may not make this as I've got running / firing problems after trying to change leads and I'm hoping to resolve but it's chucking it down. Note to self - should have left well alone without tinkering before a big event grr I'll keep you posted.

Heading your direction tomorrow .. yipee

Fingers crossed then. It was hot sun for all of day 1 but it honked it down with rain while the bands were on!

BBR - you're right and BP made the same observation this morning. If we had an LE then that would have completed the set.

Good weather made for an enjoyable weekend all round. A group of South Africans (Fiat and Alfa nuts with their own museum and who had flown in just for the weekend shocked ) were seeking a mint 20vt for their collection as it's the only one that's missing - apparently they were never imported to SA. Sorry I missed BP before he set off on his holiday so hope he has a good trip to Italy and everyone who attended the weekend gets back safe and sound smile

Forgot to say sorry DDouble if you got back to your car and found we'd packed up and gone. Glad I darted off at 1545hrs as the local roads were already getting snarled up frown

Pete, well done for organising this, just a shame my Coupe never made it.
Had a quick chat with G-Man whilst looking at our great display.
I have just got back home after a great weekend of being soaked inside and out one night and toasted the next two days. Great cars, good racing, plenty to see and do. Here's to next year.

Glad everyone enjoyed the event- whether it is 1,2 or the full three days this show is hard to beat in terms of organisation, atmosphere and sheer amount of stuff to do. The Coupes were much admired over the course of the three days, it's always great to meet coupe owners (and their cars) and looking at the size of some of the other club stands made me want to grow our numbers next year. So I will definitely be organising the club stand again and think it would be a good midlands venue for a future AGM.
