A quick reminder to those that might be thinking of attending Silverstone this year and haven’t got round to purchasing their tickets.

You have until the 31st March before there is a price increase.

Early Bird Package 1st Jan to 31 March
3-day weekend £105
2-day Friday/Saturday £95
2-day Saturday/Sunday £103
Friday £47
Saturday £77
Sunday £65

Standard Package 1st April/31st May
3-day weekend £125
2-day Friday/Saturday £105
2-day Saturday/Sunday £115
Friday £55
Saturday £81
Sunday £69

Please also remember that after the 31st May you will not be able to purchase any ticket or display pass, it will be general admission tickets only which aren’t cheap and you will be parked up in the public car parks.
I’m happy to help if anyone is having trouble booking using our discount code.

We are doing very well so far this year with almost 15 cars on display each day.



I also have an announcement that may interest some of you guys.

Mark Adkin has agreed to do a Question & Answer session on the Saturday and possibly Sunday.

Hopefully most of you will know who Mark is but for those that have never heard of him he build a lot of the Sytner Nottingham ALPINAs all through the 80’s, He built many e30’s, e28’ etc. I think this is a great opportunity to speak to a very interesting and knowledgable man, I could sit and listen to Mark all day so why not get yourself booked up even if its just for 1day, you can then also spend some time discussing old ALPINAs.

Latest says event under review and if dates change tickets still valid. However, one wonders which other events that might clash with? That tickets are still valid for.

Strange times, hope all are well. According to Silverstone they are hoping to hold F1 behind closed doors on 19th & 26th July 20. However, still no announcement regarding the Classic. Perhaps they are waiting to see if the Government allows the F1 with zero spectators? That would still mean around 2000 people involved with F1 would be in the circuit?

I hate to be the eternal pessimist but hard to see how they might allow the Classic with 30K visitors a day to proceed so soon after?

Wow, optimistic? Silverstone hoping to hold F1 on 26th July 20 but with no spectators, do you think they would be able to pack it all up and then get prepared for thousands of visitors by the Friday 31st and all marquees, traders, stage and race participants cars in place?

I paid for my tickets for 3 days and hotel, so dont misunderstand I want it to happen.
