31 July - 2 Aug 2020: Silverstone Classic Race Meet
*** EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT EXTENDED UNTIL 30TH APRIL 2020 ***
As at 31st March Silverstone were still hoping to go ahead...
Our Club Secretary Lawton Chen on his first visit in 2019 described this event as a fantastic three day party celebrating all things to do with the automobile. BUT — PLEASE REMEMBER GUYS — you can come along for one, two or three days instead of the whole weekend. A one day visit would make a wonderful day out looking at every conceivable classic car, browsing the stands selling polishing cloths and stuff to go with them, and eating and drinking quality take-away foodstuffs... you meet the NICEST people in a Honda...
Just make your choice when buying your ticket via the link. Remember the price is for TWO tickets for two people sharing one show car. We have listed a hotel which might be of interest to those attending but of course if you are coming for one day you may just head off home at the end of the day.
For a one day outing we think Saturday makes the best choice in terms of a balance between the on track racing whilst still being able to see the live bands.
For 2020 we are having a joint stand with the S2000 guys (S2KUK) and the NSX Club who are celebrating 30 years of their marque this year!
This will make one huge display of wall to wall amazing Honda's. The stand includes a massive 3 bay marquee, seating, food, drink inc Pimms (hic!), tea and coffee! — and of course a bunch of like minded Honda enthusiasts from your Club, the S2000 Club and the NSX enthusiasts club!!
Whilst this is primarily a race meeting there really is so much else to see and do — such that in 2019 we didn't even get near the track for a whole day!
There is the tented shopping village, car displays, the option to drive new cars (bring your driving licence!), new and second-hand cars for sale including classics, a classic car auction, two nights of live music of high quality — oh and did I mention classic motor-sport with unfettered access to the two pit areas? The site is vast so the organisers even lay on complimentary buses so you can get around. Simply put there is something to appeal to everyone here and we are really looking forward to returning.
Our friends in the S2KUK group have invited us to join them and have passed on their exclusive code whereby we can book discounted 'early bird' tickets for the whole weekend. That allows two people in one car access to three days of the event — fantastic value when you break it down. It's just over £16 each — it would cost way more to see some of the bands performing alone! To take advantage of the offer you must bring either a S800, N or Z or a S2000.
Remember you can come for one, two or three days — just make your choice when booking your ticket.
