PistonHeads at the Britcar Silverstone 1000km

With just over a week to go until the Silverstone 1000km (September 20th-22nd), we’re getting our wellies packed and tent building skills perfected. For those of you that haven’t yet made plans for the weekend, drop everything and book tickets now. Why? Because PH is now offering £25 off camping, that’s why.

The deal applies to any order where two or more camping pitches are booked for at least five people. That saving, conveniently enough, will pay for five entry tickets to the PH Friday night party. Now there’s a plan, right? Scroll down for your voucher code and details of how to bag the saving.

But of course, there’s so much more to the weekend than sleeping under canvas and a PH shindig; there’s even some motorsport going on...

The Silverstone 1000km weekend features two 1,000km races, one on Saturday evening for the Production Cup cars who will battle into the night and one on Sunday afternoon for the MSA British Endurance Championship. In addition there will be a full complement of support races, plus day and night qualifying sessions, running from Friday morning through to Sunday evening.

The PistonHeads camping area will again be at Winterhills Field, close to the circuit within short walking distance of grandstands and National pit straight. There will be marked out, allocated pitches, with toilet and shower facilities on the campsite. PHers will all be camped together so that you will be amongst likeminded people. As well as the three days of action on the track, don't forget that PH party on Friday night in the circuit and parade laps on Saturday morning.

From the site it is a short walk to the viewing area opposite the National Paddock and Pits. Access to the paddock area and infield viewing areas is via a tunnel near Copse corner.  This brings you our near the top end of the paddock and the viewing bank by copse corner.

There are two sizes of camping pitches available that can be purchased as a package with entry tickets and a programme, or if you have already purchased your tickets you can buy the camping pitch on its own. Please note the latest offer applies to camping pitches only. The table below details the package types and prices:

    Last year was outstanding! It's a shame there isn't the 24 hours race, but this seems like an excellent substitute!

    So are the parade laps on Saturday, Sunday or both?

    This article says it's Saturday but the "Dunlop and Pistonheads at Britcar 1000km" article says we're doing it on Sunday as part of the SS.

    What payment covers us for what?
