Goodbye to bad rubbish.
From my 1st bus journey into the new paddock and the climb up to the pit wall it was obvious that not much thought had gone into the planning of the wing.

Old Silverstone was much better anyway. I hate the new layout and I hate the new pit complex. All just because of F1. This greedy sport corrupts everything good left in motorsport.

i thought all the changes made to silverstone were made for the bikes seeing as it had lost f1, sort of makes spending alll that money pointless

Only been to Silverstone once and didn't like it at all! Walked for what seemed like miles before finding somewhere to sit (can't cope with sitting in a stand). It might be a good race track but it is crap for spectators as far as I'm concerned. Only thing I did enjoy was walking past all the riders motor homes and seeing Jonathan Rea's socks and shorts draped over a clothes airer on the grass - didn't see Jonathan though even though I hung about for ages! I had to walk off in the end as some of the Ten Kate team were sitting at a table beside JR's motorhome and were starting to give me funny looks!!!!

I like how they complain about the logistics of two paddocks, what about the logistics of moving around the world!!!!! not really a problem being a mile apart for three days is it!

Silverstone is a pants circuit! The world needs to know the UK has great tracks like Oulton and Cadwell...I'm not saying a motogp race should be there but we should be building gp tracks which emulate them! Looking forward to the new potential welsh
circuit which is in the pipeline...

There is nothing much wrong with Silverstone but you have to know where to sit. General entry is a waste of time and roving entry is best when the new complex is being utilised.
IMO Woodcote A is the best for the old pits and start/finish but that is now reserved at £110 for the weekend.
Donington - two thirds is great but facilities are stil 19c.
