Looking ahead a bit, I am thinking about attending the LMS event at Silverstone.

Who else is going?

What/where are the camping facilities (I'll bring the 'van)??

We were talking with Piglet about this at the weekend!

Basically at the moment there is not going to be any on cicuit camping avaliable! We are thinking of asking the Silverstone Organizing people if we can have a patch of grass and administer it our selves. Ie the circuit only give us interior car passes and let us stay the night in a pre determined area. If this goes ahead then we will obvously need numbers and money ahead of the event and that it will be assumed that there will no facilties other then those in the paddock (We could be a long away from there).

We will keep you posted.

I'd be interested in camping, too. So Rick, please put me on your Silverstone camping list too.

I don't care - I'm a racing driver and I'm here to win, not to finish third.

Have sent Alex Lacey an email today, see what comes out of that. Of course I would be interested if the infield would be closed.
As far as I know Dirk and Roy would be interested to come along too, most probably more to follow...

I'll email a contact at the BRDC and see what I can do.  I'm not sure whether it will be achievable.

There is a small site 2-3 miles SW down the A43 at Syresham.  This is what the Camping Club call a 'Certificated Site' - ie no 'block sanitaire', but has hookups and chemical disposal point and water.

.........And a pub within half a mile   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

There is a nice pub at Syresham - Rising Sun?, Old Sun? Something like that!

If it's Camping club it's probably members only but it might be worth a ring.

It's not a Camping Club site, but listed in their site guide, so everybody is welcome. 

FYI, non-members are allowed on Camping Club-owned sites as well - they just pay a bit extra.

But as I said above, it is a small site, and we would need to book it well in advance.  And it wouldn't be grossly expensive like Donny was last year.

Me and Mrs B are hoping to go, depends on work and getting the kids farmed out.
We presumed there would be camping infield like 2 years ago, will have to rethink if there isn't. Sad
