Well, I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.

I would have preferred less wind and rain. Still, it kept the noise down on the campsite.

On a positive note, the hot showers kept going all weekend and the toilet rolls didn't run out. We did have some 'interesting' campers this year.

Car highlights; Honda Integra / McLarens / Group C / Classic F1.

Did get some free gloves from Mike Brewer..

Concerts we're good (quite a lot from 'my' era.)

Looking forward to 2018.

After attending last year I thought it would have been nice to be parked on the in field.

Steve - I have been going every year for the last 8 years and parked infield every time

As a member of Club Lotus I get a code which I can PM you nearer the time if you want. This gets you a BOGOF and infield parking on the Club Lotus stand with special sticker. The 2 tickets for 3 full days, including infield parking for 3 days is only £99 :shock: :shock: :shock:

I'm assuming camping is on top and depending where you camp ? (although if my wife finds out I'm even entertaining the idea :chair: )

Jim (Muley) and I camp at the nearest and easiest campsite to the circuit at Litchlake farm (sometimes referred to as Bitchlake or Shitlake :lol: )

£15 pppn for very basic camping ie about 8 showers and 6 male toilets + 6 female toilets for a field about the size of 12 football pitches :?

If you're thinking basic it fits the description. If you're thinking 5* then it doesn't

Mark & Jim, Minda and I both booked the Friday off work so hopefully at Litchlake by noon. Certainly before Friday night, we missed that last year.

Been in MX5 & Clubman past 2 years so plan is the Elise, its very tight for camping 2 up but managed Gairloch in it last summer .

See you there, :gathering: :cheers: :drunk: :D

After more than 10 Spa 6 hours, 4 Le Mans classic, 2 Schloss Dick, some Beaulieu autojumble... i think i'll try to go to silverstone classic this year, probably with the Elan.
But i've never gone to this circuit for any event. So i have some question to those who often go there?

How to park in the infield without being member of the Lotus club ? (I'm member of the Lotus 7 UK club, but i think i'll have problems if i join them with a M100 :-D )
What are the "must be seen" events ?
Where to sleep ? Is there "a better camping place" ?
....

Thank you for all your "good ideas" :wink:

Steve - the Early Bird deal closed at the end of March (2 tickets for 3 days = £99 + booking fee). You can still get Advance tickets until 31 May which are much more expensive and you have just over a week remaining. After 31 May ticket sales end and there are no sales on the gate. Admission is by ticket only

I've PM'd you the code :smt023
