Arrgghhhh I've lost out on two, yes TWO sets of hospitality tickets for this testing at Silverstone.  >:(

First I get back from hols to find a letter from Mclaren with limited spaces - of course all gone.

Then found BT hospitality tickets on Ebay and was out bid by 5 this afternoon  :(

Not such a Wiz now eh?

Is there access to all of the grandstands? Can you sit opposite the pits?

Thank you in advance. :)

Hi Wendy and welcome,

Access is restricted, the only grandstands you can use are Woodcote and the Pit Straight.

Hope this helps.

 :good: Certainly did help - thank you!

Looks like we are going tomorrow... should be there for just after 9.00am... Do we need to take sandwiches or are there vendors selling food and drink?

I used to go years ago (mid 80's - early 90's) yep - that old! :) and loved the tyre testing sessions of that era and when the buzzer went at 5.00pm you could wander over to the pits and meet the drivers... just excellent... I can remember touching the tyre of Alain Prost's car as soon as it came back from testing... I had no idea, till then, how hot the tyres actually got... A mechanic shook his head at me, laughed and said, I bet you wish you'd not done that now! Too right! :)

Thanks for reading...
Wendy

Wendy, you lucky, lucky thing you.  :yahoo:

As I understand it, the only food available will be from vending machines so you may be wise to take your own, unless you make gross sandwiches of course.  ::)

There will also be a merchandise shop so be sure to take some pennies with you. Hope you have a great time and I look forward to you telling us all about it. If you take any pics then post them in the image gallery.

You can check the weather here. Don't forget your earplugs!
