Been every year since 2006 - from 2007 with my Puma forum which makes it a rewarding if knackering day!

I'll have my car on the PassionFord stand though this year as my club is Puma only.

Take sun tan lotion, cash and food unless you want to pay £7+ for a tasteless burger....

Yeah been to Silverstone before not exactly a cheap day out, but wouldn't an umbrella be a better idea than sun lotion?

Only rained once (for about 30 mins) since 2006.

Stick a brolly in the boot though knowing how random the weather has been this year so far! And a snow shovel... :lol:

Will be my first year. Really looking forward to it, although not so much the early start as I plan to drive straight from home. (Still not as far as some people will be coming).

Any idea when we have to be on stand? I know it opens for general public at 9am.

Last year I think we were in before 8, even at that time you have to queue for a while to get in, just make sure you're in the right lane for your pass otherwise is madness!

The earlier you get there, the better your position on stand I guess... we were on the ZSOC stand last year and it was pretty full even that early.

Looks like we'll have lots of cars on stand this year!!

Will be second years this year, as a club though we definitely need to be a bit more sociable though!

One thing I think needs organising is some sort of BBQ or table and chairs thing. We were off to one side and had a massive piece of grass land behind the stand. Also perhaps setting up the stand a bit better?

All the same, was good fun and ended up meeting people I wouldn't have before as well as getting ideas I didn't have before!

Going for the second time this year!

Last year was my first time, didn't have my own car, wasn't on a stand and didn't get to race my partners car like we wanted but all in all was a good day! This year will be better though as I can show off my baby :p

It was dead sunny last year and as it's been said take your own food!! Its SO expensive :|

Also how would anyone feel about having a couple of meet ups and cruising in together?

Last year I met up with a bunch of guys from another forum at Oxford services and then all drove together to Silverstone, we could maybe get a couple of meet up, one for the south and one for the north and then aim to arrive at the same time?

Sounds like a good idea I am travelling down from Gods own county and happy to meet up anywhere on M1
