Silverstone Circuit was built on the site of World War II Royal Air Force bomber station, RAF Silverstone.

As racing fans we wanted to visit Silvertone on our trip. Coming at the circuit, no possiblities were there to see anything of the circuit. Reason: track days!!
On the website no information is available on this topic.
Perhaps drivers racing at Silverstone on Public Track Days are ashamed to be seen by public.

This is a 'must do' experience for all F1 fans. You get to see behind the scenes, visit the BRDC clubhouse, stand on the podium and see race control. We even had a spin around the track in a minibus - make sure you wear your seatbelt. Our 'instructor' was very informative and made the whole experience very enjoyable. I can thoroughly recommend this.

We went to the Bentley Owners Club Race Weekend. Brilliant day.

The surprising thing was that the main food hall to the rear of the paddocks was pretty good value, OK the food was fairly standard 'transport cafe', but no where near what I expected to pay. Clean and presentable too.

But the racing was the big thing for us, brilliant.

Many. many visits over 20 odd years. The race circuit for spectator thrills from Grand Prix weekends to Club events. My favourites are Classic Race days, sat on the grass outside Copse corner watching the machines of my boyhood drifting round the corner on full opposite lock, driver visible and excitement all the way. A petrol-head dream.

However despite the improvements toilets are a disgrace and food concessions are a joke. Take your own sandwiches and an empty bottle.

the Silverstone experience is always a good day out however a real shame that the fast food around the circuit is so expensive
