    Yes, I was there for Santana.
    The stage was in a different area then too.
    Also remember how bad Jedwood were.
    Even Rick Parfitt Jr. was taking the pee when he followed them.

    Did anyone else see the amazing Carlos Santana there a few years back ? Not many people there, I took my young teenage sons who didn’t know who he was (children got in free) and we were about 15 feet from him in warm weather. Amazing. I think they must have lost money as not many turned up, so next year it was Jedward and the Pussycat Dolls (who ?)
    I did David. Like you say front row seats, well standing and the only U.K. gig he did that year. Maybe for some years, don’t really know but was pretty spectacular. Worth the price of the 3 day tickets for that alone. Pretty much downhill since.

    Yr not wrong. I’ve listened to a few of the sound checks since, but never been tempted to stay on. Bonnie Tyler was quite fun as she was having zip trouble but hadn’t noticed...to link to another thread maybe we should suggest Toyah, but the evenings can be a little chilly....

    Evening all,

    Since we're missing out on Le Mans Classic this year (again!) we're heading over to Silverstone for the Classic.

    We've done it many times before but never stayed over.

    So.... which campsite?? Litchlake looks reasonably favourable (good location?).

    Any thoughts? Where are others staying?

    Many thanks in advance

    Sean

    Hi Sean,
    me and my gang always stay on Litchlake.
    Great location for walking back in for the concerts etc. ( assuming a little libation maybe partaken).
    Book in advance online it's a bit cheaper.
    I usually go Thursday and leave Sunday afternoon.

    Many thanks Kev, Litchlake it is then!

    I have a feeling we booked Litchlake previously but didn't use it. One of those Silverstone Classics where you wander about in the freezing rain thinking "how can it possibly be this cold and wet in July??" We drove back and forth to my mate's place in Cambridge instead.

    Hope to see you there!

    Bought tickets as part of the Car Club display package and recently had an email requesting vehicle details and booking reference number etc before Monday. Unfortunately when following the link the booking reference number box is “greyed out” and it’s not possible to make an entry. I’ve contacted them and they are aware of this and will be re-sending the form. Has anyone found an alternative route? I don’t remember one but I may be wrong.

    What's the difference between Silverstone Golf Club and Woodlands sites. I carried tickets from '20 so camping is in Woodlands (the usual Silverstone site) but those that bought this year are in Golf Club which going by google maps is across the road but I doubt they will have dug up the first tee to make it a campsite. Just wondering if they have divided Woodlands into tow sites now. The description certainly makes it sound like the same site and still has the optimistic, closest site to entrance statement....

    Is Silverstone Golf Club the same as Whittlebury Golf Club?
    Stayed on the Whittlebury one years ago, it was a long walk in to the concerts etc.
    Since them I've always camped at Litchlake opposite the main entrance.
    Also camped on Woodlands one year when Litchlake wasn't available.

    Whittlebury and Silverstone are different courses - Whittlebury is the nicer IMO, with a choice of 4x 9-hole loops.

    In terms of location, W'bury is to the north of the circuit, Silverstone Golf is to the South East, sort of opposite the Woodlands sites. I think there was some debate about what sites would be open a few months back. The local paper is predicting a heat wave in July - that would make a nice change from the usual blizzard / monsoon.
