Anniversary parades are a waste of time anyway. Far too cluttered and very slow (unless you are at CC :burnout: )

I've saved a space for you in the Connaught bus Scott :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

The Silverstone event was fantastic, despite the bad weather on Sat/Sun. Good racing, good company and excellent music, particularly Joe Cocker and Kenney Jones, ex Small Faces and The Who.

Steve - I hit very bad and persistent rain for about 3 hours/200 miles on the way back north but not a drop of rain passed by Jamie's all in one A post/header seal rubber :poke:

Yes but I noticed where Jamie's seal finished and your old originals started it was all getting a bit squelchy :lol:

Just a little moist ;-) But then that's what you expect from sponge rubber :?

A heads up on next year's Silverstone Classics event - Fri. 31 July - 02 Aug. 2020 (provisional)

Tickets can be purchased right now. Super Early Bird tickets cost £99.00 (all 3 days) + £1.95 booking fee until 31/12/19. Then they revert to Early Bird tickets (£105 + booking fee for 3 days) And if you leave booking up until after 31 March it will cost you £125 + booking fee for the 3 days

And if you are rash enough to leave it until after 31 May you just won't get any tickets :twisted:

The price of tickets quoted above includes for 2 people plus parking infield for your Lotus on the Club Lotus stand for all 3 days

There are plenty of campsites around the circuit (we tend to favour Litchlake Farm which is next to the big bridge and is only a 5-7 minute stroll to Luffield corner) Again, it is better to book up in advance as they will screw an extra £20 out of you if you just turn up on the day as Jim found out last year

More details to follow in due course ie live bands etc...And if you require a discount code, please PM me

@Jim - tickets just purchased :wink:

C'mon SteveA. Pull your finger out this year and get booked up early.

You know, and Lesley, knows it makes sense :smt023

It's worth it for the bands, let alone the fantastic race programme :burnout:

#Scott...I've booked for Donington. £35 a night at the Premier Inn dosser

Looking forward to going to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem after an absence of 30 years

I'm probably giving CC a miss this year but will still be going to Silverstone. 11th successive year for me and The Mulester

I booked that Premier Inn you recommended Scott. A short walk and a tram ride in to Jerusalem for a few swallies of an evening. Fairly sure Minda will like the religious experience :bowdown:

I can get 2 people for 3 days and an infield car pass for 3 days for £99. No parade lap though

That makes the parade lap, which is a waste of time anyway, cost £69 :shock:

Shaun - I got mine back in Oct. and the 2nd ticket has been taken by Jim (Muley) Suggest you get the 241 offer and find someone to take the other one off you
