    I'm lucky enough to be going to Silverstone this Saturday for a Lotus Elise track experience thingy, was wondering if you use the full grand prix circuit or the club circuit?

    Anyone done a similar thing at Silverstone?

    Google is a wonderful thing....

    OK, I found out.

    It's the Southern Track, basically Beckets - Hangar straight - Stowe - Vale - Club corner to Abbey the cut across the centre back to Beckets.

    really looking forward to this. :D

    Take a look at this link.

    I'll post pickies if anyone's interested.

    I did the RAC Norwich Union Classic a few years ago, in my (sadly departed) 1968 Volvo 123GT (Seriously 'tricked out'). This event took in Castle Combe (as many laps as you liked), Prestcot Hillclimb (awesome!) and the full GP cicuit at Silverstone. Fantastic, but Priory was a nightmare of disorientation. Plenty of run-off areas tho.
    You'll have a great time in an Elise! I think the track experiences use the short infield circuit, but I may be wrong.
