PISTONHEADS AT BRITCAR24

Camping not for you? How about a Snoozebox instead? Whatever your choice, join PH on site at Silverstone


Excitement is building to fever pitch in the PH office as we look forward to our Britcar 24 weekend at Silverstone on September 21-23.

Not since Le Mans (can it really be three months back?) have we supped a few beers, watched some stoating racing and slept under canvas. The great news is, it's not too late for you to join us.

Our dedicated PH camping area at the circuit is close to the National Paddock and the old Pit Straight, just behind the old grandstands and the paddock bridge. We've got toilets and showers, though no catering or bar facilities inside our 'site' as such. However we are working with the event organisers to ensure that there are facilities close to the entrance. We'll keep you posted as things develop, but in the true spirit of camping there's always the default option of BBQing your own food.

If your Weber skills are a bit rusty, the circuit's own food facilities are only a short walk away. So is the viewing area, opposite the National Paddock and Pits. Access to the paddock and infield viewing areas is via a tunnel near Copse corner. This brings you out to the viewing bank near the top end of the paddock.

To reserve a space in the PH site, make sure you enter ‘PistonHeads’ in the car club field when booking online and we'll do the rest.


Don't fancy the 'under canvas' part? Well, we can help there too as 1st Tickets has partnered up with Snoozebox to bring you on-circuit pop-up hotel accommodation. No, really.

Snoozebox is a totally unique accommodation option located right inside the circuit. Each Snoozebox has an en-suite wet room with shower, basin and toilet, serviced daily with quality towels and toiletries. Comfortable beds, air conditioning, flat-screen TV, free WiFi and a personal safe guarantees you a relaxed and enjoyable stay whatever the weather (which will be sunny, of course).
