    Its new garages not built yet mate:

    Set to be situated down the pit lane next to the circuit’s control tower, the new complex will comprise 12 double garages with capacity for 24 cars and will benefit from a vast paddock space behind.
    Work on the garages is set to begin in the coming weeks and is currently scheduled to be completed by April; finishing in time to kick off what is set to be a spectacular summer of motorsport around the picturesque circuit.

    No, i get that.... but they still have 6-10 garages that go unused every time we've been there.... I just wonder why that is.

    In the same way, i'm thinking it's unlikely these will be available to us either.

    Probably want to keep them shiny for the paying car companies that use the circuit for testing or the higher end meetings that the circuit hosts .....why let a bunch of track day oiks in there to mess them up/ break stuff and also use the circuits electricity. I know they could recoup the costs with a hire charge but for such a small circuit i can "almost" see why they want to preserve the longevity of the limited facilities they have

    Silverstone has a massive budget and every top flight booking/meeting under the sun to keep it running at peak performance ...... Pembrey is a tad more limited in income
