    Yes I know it's 209! But it's half term so no problems with our boy.

    If we book any of the others, it's Anglesey at 150 then add in hotel, fuel and time etc. Or Mallory which she hates and needs hotel too.

    So Silverstone it is, the wife has never ridden it and it is an epic circuit!

    Who's playing?

    It's a place that's faster and sweeper than anywhere in the UK, 100+mph turn ins and several times you'll be pinned in 4th/5th and even top.

    It's hard to learn but very rewarding. Imo a must do circuit.

    Looked at the logistics and it's not going to work really... 6hr round trip, van hire, etc. and I'm looking at nearly 500. I can do Oulton Park for that ... twice.

    If a mate decides he is up for it then I'll have another think, but else have fun.

    Why do you need a hire van when you don't for Pembrey ?

    Coolio

    Pembrey ... hours of winding twisty roads ...

    Silverstone... hours of motorway / 50mph zones and pot holes ...

    BIG difference.

    It's the only circuit that I actually dislike. Flat and featureless and no technical corners. But we're all different and hope you enjoy it.

    I'd never have gone if I'd had to pay
