hi. can anyone tell me how long before the GP does the Woodlands Campsite open? Thanks.3rd January 2012, 10:03 at 10:03 am #181253McLarenFanJammParticipant
@John according to the silverstone website, the campsite opens 7am on the Wednesday: http://www.silverstone.co.uk/default-camping-info.html3rd January 2012, 16:28 at 4:28 pm #181254nickynoonooParticipant
Last year they were lining up at the gate to get in at around 4am! But that’s because there is very limited electrical hook-up.
I turned up at around 6:30pm on the Wed and ended up being around 10/15 rows back from the main entrance which suited me fine. I would hate to turn up on the Friday, the campsite is so big it would take ages to get anywhere.4th January 2012, 15:27 at 3:27 pm #181255OllyF1ukParticipant
My wife, Daughter and I will be attending the 2012 British GP and staying at woodlands in the family area and wont be arriving until 1pm on the wednesday will this be ok as we do not need electrical hookup.6th January 2012, 15:56 at 3:56 pm #181256
They have made a great job of Woodlands now, but it is so busy. Windmill is a nice site if you are looking for something quieter. Silverstone Golf Club is also good.6th January 2012, 16:47 at 4:47 pm #181257
I’m camping at Woodlands but wont be arriving until 12 noon ish on the Thursday, does that mean I’ll end up quite far back? Dont need an electric hook up, but havent camped before, so hoping everything will work out nice and easy!9th January 2012, 10:56 at 10:56 am #181258nickynoonooParticipant
People are still turning up at 4am on Saturday morning so dont worry if you are not going to be there until late Wed or Thur. Getting there early just means you will be closer to the entrance for the track, but dont worry if not as there is a small tractor/train that drives round the campsite and takes you to the entrance to the campsite which is only a few monutes walk from the gate at stowe corner.9th January 2012, 16:49 at 4:49 pm #181259
Thats great, thank you!9th January 2012, 16:52 at 4:52 pm #181260
Hampster79 – You will be fine mate.9th January 2012, 16:59 at 4:59 pm #181261
Thanks McFosi, I’ve never camped before and havent been to Silverstone either so dont really know what I’m letting myself in for! Have been to Monza so know what to expect racing-wise it’s just the camping part that’s making me nervous! All will be fine I’m sure, roll on July!10th January 2012, 9:23 at 9:23 am #181262JohnParticipant
thanks for the responses10th January 2012, 17:23 at 5:23 pm #181263Tom_ec1Participant
Two quick questions, I would be really grateful for a response:
1. Does any one know how long the early bird tickets are available until?
2. Does any one have any more information about the Stagecoach bus service which (according to Silverstone website) runs from Northampton station to the track over the weekend?11th January 2012, 15:14 at 3:14 pm #181264Nige.BParticipant
