I was thinking the same.  Perhaps those in charge of the weather forecasts all want a quiet weekend at the coast, and are just trying to spoil the plans of others.

Well that's come from no where.  Lets see how it changes over the coming days.  At the moment they are not massively high percentages - but I guess it could go either way.  Should be dry at the moment for the track parade and the evening.  Just need to remember to pack drying towels.

Depends which way you go, if you go;

 

A40 > A34 > M40 we can meet in the BP on the A34 just before the M40 

 

A429 > A361 > A43 (some other A roads, these are the major) then we can meet at the Tesco in Brackley.

 

 

Nothing in timings for either route, but for reference I'll be coming up the A34 > M40 route. We can work out timings once we have a meeting point. 

 

Happy to meet on the A34 at the BP garage mate. Let me know your thoughts on timings. Anyone else wanting to meet up there?

Ok its Approx. 30 mins to SIlverstone from the BP on the A 34 (Weston Garage, Weston-on-the-Green, Bicester OX25 3QQ), so I suggest 07h15 - 07h30 to aim and arrive at the venue for 08h00.

 

Thoughts?

Hellooo!

I don't know if I need to tell anyone, but I'm definite for the Saturday, can't make it on the Friday and don't currently know about the Sunday.

 

Got my windscreen pass. Is there anything else I need to know?

 

Look forward to meeting up again :)

 

 

I'll be going up t'M1 on early Saturday morning if anyone fancies a bit of Invidia for company.

Great to see you mate.  Just make sure you have the Entrance Tickets (printed from the original email) as well as the screen vehicle pass.

 

We are in the Area close to the Medical Centre.  Just follow the Red Ferrari's  :lol:

Jam-packed action: Friday at the Classic!

The Silverstone Classic is well underway! A vast and impressive array of mouth-watering machinery blasted into qualifying action today - it was an awesome sight to see. 

Today’s 14 sessions have set the grid positions for a jam-packed schedule of 21 races across the weekend, and if the early signs are anything to go by then this year’s Classic will be as ultra-competitive as ever.

Highlights of the day include track action from three particularly extraordinary cars – the 1934 Barnato Hassan Special, ‘Le Monstre’ Cadillac and Bentley Speed 8. The Barnato Hassan Special broke the Land Speed Record at Brooklands back in 1935, and in the hands of David Ayre, the Bentley-engined beast lined up third in-class today in the Bentley Centenary Trophy for Pre-War Sports Cars, on its first appearance for 15 years.
 
‘Le Monstre’ – a perfect replica of the special-bodied Briggs Cunningham curiosity that contested the 1950 Le Mans 24 Hours – was a sight to behold in the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote & Stirling Moss Trophy, while the Bentley Speed 8 popularly made its UK track debut, 16 years on from the car’s memorable triumph at Le Mans, marking a fitting tribute to Bentley’s 100th birthday.

Off-track highlights included Yianni and his team from Yiannimize on the Village Green Stage. Crowds gathered as they entertained by sourcing items to wrap from amongst the audience! Read more about the first day at the Silverstone Classic 2019 here

Saturday: An amazing day from sunrise to sunset!
 
Visitors to the Classic enjoyed a full day of motorsport with heated battles on-track and tightly fought podiums. The HSCC Classic Formula 3 grid kicked off the race programme and gripping action continued throughout the day, finishing with three stunning races for our Twilight Tribute to Le Mans.  

Away from the track, a packed infield showed stunning car club classics while enthusiasts and families were also entertained by a wealth of activities from the Young Driver experience, to the Abarth Autotest Challenge, Mike Brewer's Car Clinics, Sporting Bears Dream Rides and the Yokohama Chelsea Skills Zone. Read our full wrap-up of the day here

Our provisional dates for 2020: 31 July to 2 August!
 
Memories of another incredible Silverstone Classic are still fresh in our minds but the clock has already started counting down to next year’s event and we're delighted to announce that our provisional dates are 31 July to 2 August 2020!
 
As tradition dictates, the Classic will take place at the home of British motor sport two weeks after the British Grand Prix. With the Formula One dates provisionally confirmed for 17-19 July, the three-day 2020 Silverstone Classic is similarly provisionally confirmed for the mid-summer weekend of 31 July to 2 August. Both dates will be confirmed later in the year, once the Grand Prix schedule has been finalised.

2020 is going to be a very special year for the Classic too as we're celebrating our 30th pearl anniversary! Full plans for the 30th anniversary of the first Silverstone Classic will be announced in the coming months and tickets will go on sale by the start of November. Keep your eye out for updates!
