DON'T GO into the complex or adjacent to it - given the rain you may be there a week stuck in the mud!

Best to park on one of the advertised car park 4-5 miles out as they are more hardcore and regular shuttle buses in....

Agreed, it will be HIDEOUSLY muddy, getting out will take forever and a day as well.

there's a p+r on the a43, well sign posted. if you've got no parking pass i'd strongly advise you to do this because you wont park for free anywhere near the course and you could find yourself soaked to the skin and covered in mud by the time you reach your seats!

just for the record i DON'T think the getting out will be so bad, since they cancelled the historic races and started pushing the grand prix party, people leave in stages rather than all at once, the access roads are better, and the mud will be nowhere near BGP2000 levels! i'll go for just 'forever' rather than forever and a day :)

In 1998 it was horrendous, took us 4 hours to get back to Kenilworth which is only about 40 miles away. I fell asleep before the world cup final Sad

experience is always a benefit here, parked up on friday, came back on friday evening to find the car park destroyed! moved the car to a concrete section of said car park, said car park is then not used for the rest of the weekend. fkqmz drives straight out the car park and is on the a43 within 10 mins whilst the mugs queue Laugh
