Was at Silverstone today. First race on the new layout I think, the circuit mods look good I thought, Bloomin' COLD! The 'vette caught fire at Stowe.

Those GT1's are pretty awesome, plenty of 911's in the GT3 class, not sure why the (le mans series) GT2's couldn't be running in the GT1world thing?

some pics

I was there too! Wish I'd thought to check if any other forum members were going to be there The new track layout seems to be pretty good, imho. I particularly enjoyed the GT3 and GT4 racing - more so than the GT1s, in some ways. There are some really interesting GT3 cars among the usual squad of Audi R8s and 911s - and here I'm thinking the Alpina B6 and the BMW Z4 - the latter of which has beautifully sculpted and complicated bodywork and ducting. These cars must costs an absolute fortune to build.

I was going to go as well. I'm close enough to just turn up (5 minutes!)

However, when I woke up and saw the rain lashing down yesterday morning, I chickened out and stayed at home and watched it all live on Motors TV instead - with real sound effects from having the back door open Very Happy

Had I known you guys were going, I would have made the effort... PC

Let me know if any of you are going to any other Silverstone events... I sometimes have spare tickets, but will probably turn up anyway if I'm at home and know there are other 911uk members up there. thumbsup

I really want to go to the 1000kms, but have an agility judging appointment that weekend, so probably won't be able to frustrated

May end up doing agility one day and coming home/to the race for the other day. Thumb

Will definitely be there for the Classic... Usually get 'local resident' tickets for that one... thumbsup

(However, we've always got them for this weekend's race before, but not this time, so maybe not Dont know )
