    I had a thought,,,,

    How many people would be up for meeting at Silverstone this year...

    The ticket prices are pretty low to 259 pounds for over the pits ( my preference ), so how many people would be interested in going and we can arrange whats best, a meeting point or hotel if we wanted to meet on the saturday for just the race on the sunday.

    www.silverstone.co.uk/events/2011-Formula-1-Santander-British-Grand-Prix1/


    I understand a lot of people are in Europe, but im offering a stay over at my place ( yorkshire ) and then the drive down.

    Any thoughts and maybe we could start a sticky with a list of yes's and confirmed bookings, i dont mind booking myself and receiving payments via PayPal or direct bank transfers.

    Your thoughts guys

    I would love to go, but financially i cannot afford it this year, wish i could tho, something tells me this year is going to be extra special in F1 history.

    sounds like a brilliant idea, nothing like watching F1 above the pits with beer!

    Extra special for me, im back in Europe and dont have to watch the races at 8pm, already drunk
    better over the pits with a beer and a girl in F1 hot pants serving us.

    The cheap seats are only 59 gold coins !!

    Didnt you know Chris, this is the year all the UK RD players are going to see the Australian GP!! :D

    You're moving to Yorkshire eh - thats just down the road from me (Tyne & Wear) - been thinking of proposing to the missus, proposing a trip to Silverstone that is!!
    Ive literally just realised looking at the dates that im in Milton Keynes the weekend before to see Foo Fighters and Biffy Clyro on the Saturday 2nd July! Damn why couldnt it have been the weekend after!!! Could have done the gig on the saturday and the GP on the sunday on the way back.

    Anyone got Dave Grohls or Bernies number? :D

    Not sure I can do both unless you got room in that

    Bargain!! :)

    25/30 quid for BTCC!

    Oh yeh Chris... you probably already know but just incase you dont.. You know the Start/Finish straight is down at club/abbey this year and not before copse. Could determing what grandstand you want! Would love to go again but not at that price lol.

    Yeah I couldnt see pit straight tickets in the 'normal' section, but you can get the 'Drivers Club' ticket (think it was about £1500) to guarantee you are on the start/finish line regardless of where they choose to put it this year!

    I remember back when BTCC was good, back in the good old Cleland days when there were more than 3 manufacturers involved or something!

    Ive been to Buda 4 times in the last year love it,,,,

    I did however have to travel to Pecs to see a client and when boarding the train, i asked the conductor if it defo went back to Buda, keliti station, His reply was a firm YES.

    I arrived in Sarajevo, 4 HRS LATER !!

    I wasnt happy as i wanted a day in the old town, as its not often i get to spend time in a city, wanker Conductor ruined my day.....

    Im serious about meeting at a GP, ive got a client in most f1 stops so i can arrange a site visit then pop off to the GP and claim it back though my company,,,,I do fancy spa though, but also Monza. Hell ill even drive there if i have too.

    Moved this as it isn't f1 the game, it's f1 reality!

    I'm thinking about it, full weekend becketts grandstand(because you can see he arena section too) see the cars twice a lap. It's £299, or £399 gets club silverstone, the one next to it but with a food tent and parking: although parking included in camping which is £45 for the weekend per person, and you could be on tv eating BBQ with EJ, DC and Jake hump!
