Must be about time they got Jagger and his cronies. That would be worth seeing.

No plan for a stand. You have to pay for those, anyway.

However, for the past few years some LECers have stayed at Litchlake campsite across the way and enjoyed a few beers and glasses of red biddy. Oh, and watched the races. There's often a good concert on - Status Quo this year plus others.


TBH I'm surprised more LEcers don't come, but each to his own,

Its a great event but as you both know, I'm planning le mans classic the fortnight before so can't do both. I've seen Adam & the Ants, the Quo, Mike & Mechanics on previous visits so well worth it .

I just don't like Silverstone. It's flat and boring for spectators and nothing like as good as Brands. I went to one of the first "classics" in about 1992 and was not tempted to return. And that's when I lived in London, so chances of me driving from Aberdeen are nil.

Will be there with LDC. Great event, excellent racing brilliant club displays. Yes Silverstone is flat but the place is stuffed with so much to see, hear and experience non of that matters. Unmissable!

unfortunately this Man in Black will miss the Stranglers. Mind you I haven't seen them since Hugh Cornwall left and that was 1989. I remember seeing them at the old Apollo Theatre at the top of Renfield St in Glasgow. Many a riot at that venue. Still got my bikers jacket with the stranglers painted a cross the shoulders. it fitted me when i was 16 but not anymore.
