Anyone want to share a 2 for 1 with me? Planning to take the Hyena on Saturday but going alone as Mrs Hyena does not wish to attend.

I have now bought the 2 for 1 ticket for Silverstone on the Saturday as that's the only way I could get the Hyena into the club enclosure! So if anyone wants a ticket for 25 (normal day ticket price = 48.60!) let me know!

Hi, to all going this weekend, I hear two Lancia LC2 group C cars are appearing on track, chassis #5 and #8, worth going just for that I would say!

Is that a Golf with a bodykit?

Looking forward to tomorrow (Saturday)

What time are people aiming to be there for?

Was thinking 9.30 to 10am as I cannot see any particular restrictions on vehicle movements on the infield.

Always gone on the Friday for the last couple of years and I guess its a lot quieter than the Saturday.

First race nine o'clock. There will be a queue from 08.30 until 10.00. No easy choice. Personally I aim to arrive at  eleven'sh.  It's going to be a long day with arguably the best racing in the evening session. Whatever, the weather looks ok so just relax and have a good time.

Martin, thanks for organising,

I had a great day on Saturday. Getting into the circuit was slow mainly because a large number of e-types oveheating and blocking the way.

Favorite grid was the historic F1, they looked very scary machines indeed.

Brilliant sign of the times that the sponsors were mainly beer and fags plus Penthouse and Durex!

The pre 66 GT cars were fabulous too and what a big grid. Unfortunately, i had to leave before the Group C stuff so missed the Lancia.

Our cars attracted alot of attention. A small number of interesting and rare cars is probably our USP when trying to get a decent spot at these types of events. After all did anyone bother to walk through the huge field of largely uninteresting Porsches? I thought we were a bit out on a limb at first but there was plenty of through traffic and it was interesting to note the real affection for Lancia from "car people".

Nice to meet everyone.

Thanks once again Martin.

Andy, that was the comment I made to Richard ... we are not just a number , I did walk through the Porsches to get to the trackside but otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. Mine was the ONLY integrale there on Sunday.

Thanks Martin for organising and it is just a great event. I don't think that being there for two days I saw everything (wanted to see the drag racing and lawn mower racing). The camping worked well and Jamie Oliver's place is the one for the food. I also got to see Suzi Q in the evening after the group C which, has to be said, with the darkness coming on and their lights on was just fantastic.

I have never seen so many e-types ever. It was unbelievable! It truly is a great car show with historic motorsport too.

Oh, and the 'parade' lap was good fun too ... it is a fabulous circuit and a very good design with the two pits being able to split it into two race circuits.

My top tips would be:
a) get there for 8am - done that twice, never queued.
b) bring a bicycle as you can't get between the pits on foot and the buses get quite full and the queue back looked long*

*I don't understand why but you can't walk** between the pits but if you have a bike*** then you are allowed through ...
** Well, you can walk but it's a long way (which was fine as we didn't mind walking and watching)
*** a brompton will go into an quattro boot

Sad to have missed this - was visiting relatives in Midlands yesterday so drove back on M6 and M1 around 5pm - never seen so many E-types and VW campers on the motorways. 

Sad to see an overheated Merak and Kayalami (stuck in the 15 miles of southbound M1 roadworks from Milton Keynes to Luton doing nothing to help traffic flow sadly!) as well as a Beetle and a Mini all waiting for the two trucks.  Slow moving traffic and 25 degrees are not the best combo.

Yes indeed, a fantastic event.
And to see 2 LC2s on track together for the Group C races (admittedly only 1 in Martini colours, the other being the ex-Mussato car in red) was superb. The first time since 1985 and they were at Silverstone that year for the 1000klms. I know, I went to it.
There were several comments over the PA about its good looks.
(The C11 Mercedes and XJR9 Jaguar also sounded glorious.)

Thanks to Steve for the transport there and back, Martin for his continued enthusiasm for this event and those of you who came and supported it and LANCIA.

If you're remotely interested in Motorsport, you have to go. Even if you're not, you still have to go. A bit like Le Mans; it's a great experience.
The HSCC Big Engine Touring Cars (Mustangs, Falcons, etc.) were hugely entertaining. The 50 (yes 50!) car grid for the World Sports Car Masters was a sight to behold and hear. The Grand Prix Masters (ex-F1 cars). etc. etc. And Group C of course.

Roll on next year!
