    Silverstone WEC 17-18-19 Aug

    Anyone else going?

    Got me a weekend ticket, but can only make the Sunday.

    It will be five years since I last went, when I camped out for the weekend for my stag do! Then, it was in April, and was bloody cold and a bit wet too.

    Hoping for better weather this time round!

    Yep, I'll be there Saturday and Sunday - been every year for the last 4 or 5. August should be better than April (we had snow on the Saturday 2 years ago!), hopefully it will stay dry...

    DTM at Brands this weekend first though, really looking forward to seeing those beasties live

    I'm going on Saturday and Sunday.

    I've done the Sunday the last few years 2024/2015/2017,but in 2016 our car was broken so we had to go to the BTCC at Donington instead(no motorways=less dangerous if it stops).

    Its funny, I am actually looking forward more to the ELMS than the main event! I am really in love with the LMP3 class in PC2, so after seeing the LMP3 Cup at Snetterton this year (Yeah, with 4 cars only - Plus 1 Radical in the lower class) it will be great to see a full grid!

    I always find it weird that F3 goes along with this event!

    Yeah, great little class that's becoming now! Way better than their first year in 2015!

    I suppose Silverstone is just a good circuit to race on.And as it was before the late-starting DTM season it was a natural fit.WEC need a support series-F3 need a round in April.

    So who managed to get to this?

    I was there for the Sunday, but missed the pit walk / autograph session.

    Walked about 11.5 km's over the course of the day.

    £7 for a cheeseburger! what the hell?!

    Was there Saturday and Sunday, thoroughly enjoyed it as always. Good to see the attendance up significantly (+10000 compared to last year apparently), presumably the Button/Alonso factor at least in part. Real shame that JB's car went pop before he even got to race it. Did the WEC pit walk on Saturday while the ELMS race was on. I have to say £50 for a weekend ticket feels like it was a bit of a bargain.

    Food & drink prices are steep (to say the least!) at pretty much every race meeting I go to - though £7 for a burger is high even by those standards!
