I am visiting the UK in Sept/Oct and am planning on attending Britcar 24 Hour. I’d be a fool not to attend an event at the magnificent Silverstone right? :P I love the epicness of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and I hope this race will have some similar qualities, just on a slightly smaller scale. And what an amazing chance to explore Silverstone and witness the eerie beauty of the cars driving throughout the night!
I’ve been twice before and I’m going again this year.
It’s a fantastic event on a great circuit. I love the range of cars from the FIA GT spec Porsches and Moslers all the way to Diesel VW Golfs. Last year I was lucky enough to be involved in one of the parade laps (see my avatar). It’s well worth taking a few crates of beer and some friends with you though! I cant think of a better way to spend a weekend than drinking beer with friends whilst watching race cars on a world class circuit. A brolly might come in handy too. The camping was very well organised both times I’ve been before…although it is quite expensive nowadays.
Seeing the cars streaking through the dark and completely un-lit sections of the circuit is amazing. This is the only opportunity to see a 24 hour race with a variety of machinery in the UK so I’m amazed it’s not more popular.
Sounds awesome Porkapie, thanks for your insight, I can’t wait ;)
One thing that crossed my mind, I wonder will we be able to watch the Singapore F1 GP on a TV somewhere at the track? I guess that it would be live sometime about noon on the Sunday in UK. Otherwise I’ll have to find somewhere to watch replay later.
I will be there camping too so if you see some Aussies with a Peugeot come have a drink with us.
