Vj4sothername said he's down the road from Silverstone so would come down to spectate. I told him not to bother. If he's coming down he might as well drive. Added John as +1 on my car.

33 miles for me!! Almost worth it if I didn't think I would have to spend my time shoving Ollie into and prying out of a car.

Would make a fun YouTube vid. Rx8's, does hight matter!?

Sadly my friend in the Exige doesn't think he can make it - so if anyone perusing this thread fancies the spot then I can pass on his place at the discounted rate that we got them at which was about £197. Thought I'd list it here before I plonk it on the for sale thread :)

Having never done a track day before, this seems slightly more expensive than others however I’m only 40min from Silverstone - as a track/event is this likely to be suitable for a complete novice?

I'd say so - yeah! I'll be in the same boat as you for never having done a trackday before - but go big or go home on tracks! ;) it's a GP circuit, so should be lovely, and there are a lot of us going too, so you wont be short of company :thumleft:

In my experience, a wide, well-sighted track with lots of run off makes a track beginner friendly. I've not personally driven Silverstone but I imagine it puts a tick in all 3 boxes.

Provided you stay aware of who's around you and let faster cars by then I'm sure you'll do just fine :thumleft:
