Silverstone 2013 Day of Champions Ticket Wanted

Does anyone have a spare Day of Champions ticket they want to sell ?
Either the Pit Access one, or the Ride In one.
Thanks

Re: Losail - Info on visit

I have an outside chance of going to the MotoGP at Losail.
One question, do you know if you can walk around the track, beyond the confines of the grandstands ?
I'm a keen (very) amateur photographer and wondered what the opportunities are.
Thanks

First Race Meeting - Off Season Thread

Just during the quiet period, and following the responses to 'posters usernames', for interest I thought I'd ask; When & where was your first race meeting, and who were the big names ? Mine was the Transatlantic Match Race in 1978 at Mallory Park in England, with Pat Hennen, Kenny Roberts, Barry She...

Added mine.

Best thing about it: Thruxton, Silverstone, Mallory, Donington, and Brands Hatch all within 90 minutes

After my first ''bike'' in 1976, the Yamaha FS1E 49cc, bought for £75 in June 1976.
Coincided with a brilliant summer in England and seeing over the bar in the pub.
All three combined rather spoilt my school exam grades, but that first burst of whizzing around at 42mph still brings a smile.

February 2013

A general query from the UK to fellow US petrolheads. I'm visiting the US in early February 2013, mainly to visit my brother just north of New York city, and maybe to visit the HQ of my Employer near Washington DC. I know it is probably too early in the year for any racing (I like two and four wheel...

Re: Mugello ~ first timer looking for guidance

Well, back at work today after riding back up to the UK Monday & Tuesday, arms still wobbling. Some locals said the attendance was down, crisis and all that, but the atmosphere was still manic. During the two days' practice I wandered around from Arrabiati (the Simoncelli Grandstand), as far as Mate...

Re: Mugello ~ first timer looking for guidance

A good date for a Brit to join the forum and make his first post. Though as I work for a US based and run company, there have already been a few exchanges with colleagues. I've ridden down to Monza from the UK previously, but I'm now doing a first time run to Mugello, so googling and finding this ha...
