Default Silverstone GP 2nd June

I have had this booked for some time now
Anyone else coming up that day
Never tried a track day with Silverstone directly before

If there are less people on the track day as promised i may book up again

I doubt there'll be many there. And those who are willing to take a day off work to do a track day will be really good or old.

A hypothesis not really borne out by the multitude of commercial trackdays run on weekdays with a healthy number of bikes in the novice group.

Weekdays are often quieter than weekends, but they still often sell out all three groups. Not everybody has a 9-5 job and not everybody who enjoys riding on track is necessarily that good at it.

The point i made about less people being there is stated by the website almost implying they have smaller groups on purpose.
One year the forum had a group trackday at Silverstone during the week. We had almost 20 members there in various groups

Most UK people have a holiday entitlement.
How much was it.

Cracking day in the end
Weather stayed dry which was a bonus (Rubbish weather for June all round though)

It was organised well even from when you arrived
The track did seem a bit less crowded but not by much

The day was almost off before i started due to my exhaust being almost too loud at 104.9db

Would i book another one with Silverstone direct - most likely
