Silverstone Finals saturday 19th october imp birthday cake

Post by Andy Hillman » Mon Oct 07, 2013 8:27 pm

Saturday 19th october will be the final round of the historic saloon car championship 2013. i thought we could have a little party to celebrate our little imps 50th birthday !
Nothing posh, just a cake after the race and some pics of our imps. i rang the hscc office to see if i could have some extra tickets, they agreed to post me an extra 4 tickets very kindly, so if you are temted to come along please pm me your address and i will pop them in the post to you.
After they have gone there is still a chance we can get you in by putting a ticket on the gate, it all depends on how many tickets i can scrounge from other drivers on the day!
Should be a good show of imps out, myself , benoy, aidrian,stuart kerr, colin 5 bearing gunton,steve splatts, maybe vince frost , gideon september.
I know it can become an expensive day out with fuel, food, ticket etc so hopefully we will see some new faces to go with the loyal hard core imp fans who come to every meeting to support their little cars, (you know who you are) :D
The finals always have good racing due to most class winners are not decided until the final round, its a short lap so if you sit yourself down in the BRDC stand you will be sure to see some action.
hope to see you there, Andy

I'd love to be there as I've missed every race this season but I have another long standing commitment for the Club that day.

Details of practice and race times would be useful to see if I can get up there later in the day. :wink:

Me and dad will be there but not for the practice because dads working that morning but we'll be there for the race.

Maybe we could get all the Imps together afterwards (including all the road Imps :D ) for a group photo?

Unless you can get one of Andy's tickets, advance tickets seem to be £9 so I guess it would be £10-12 on the gate. Timetable is now up on the HSCC website.

Hello the Gurns, am afraid all the tickets are now allocated , but if you give me a ring saturday morning i hope to have collected some more tickets from other competitors and will meet you at the entrance, worst case is paying on the gate 12 quid per head i think but hopefully wont come to that.

Just booked a flight arriving at London City Airport Friday Oct. 19 around 18:30.
Going back in the morning Tuesday 22, so it's just for the finals really.
Next is to arrange hotel(s) and travelling to/from Silverstone. Have a week to do it so shouldn't be a problem.
Can tickets to Silverstone be booked over the Internet?

Hi Lars
Would have been good to meet you but unfortunately cannot make the Silverstone meeting. :cry:
Somewhere else to add to your itinerary might be the Heathrow area centre meeting on Monday 21st.

Sorry you cannot make it to Silverstone. Perhaps NEC in Birmingham? I'm not sure but will do everything I can to go there. Wouldn't want to miss seeing the JoLon Imp in the top five stand. And if the car wins outright... :D
Thanks for reminding me about the Heathrow AC meeting. Will certainly try to find them on Monday evening.

If you are travelling by train from London then Northampton and Banbury stations are the closest to Silverstone.

Hi James

Provided it isn't raining, there is loads of paddock space so look for the race Imps (hopefully parked together) and park as close as you can - there aren't any restrictions where to park. We are hoping to do a group photo after the race with as many Imps as possible.

Cheers - Simon

We're probably coming along as we've never been to Silverstone before and this seems a good excuse for a day out after all the weekends working on Hilda.

Do we just go to the main entrance and follow signs to the paddock parking ??

Not bringing Hilda though - still building up the mileage gently.

Hi Phil / Les
We too will be there, but in the MH. I don't think they will allow you in the paddock. Just park up in the main car park and walk down to the paddock.
We will see you both there.

Tickets are available at the main gate as are programmes. Go straight on over the bridge then straight on over a mini roundabout, over another bridge, straight on again at another roundabout. The paddock will be in front of you, the Imps are usually to the right. Loads of room.

There's another meeting on the south circuit run by BRSCC. An F1 Caterham is scheduled to do a few laps lunchtime, rumours say it will use the full gp track.

Save some cake for us, Andy!

As James said, a great day. Weather was kind and in a first for Silverstone, it wasn't blowing a gale with freezing temps, almost balmy at times!

Huge thanks again to Lars for my gift - great to meet you! See you at GD hopefully!

Really nice to see a lot of Impers there (at least 60 by my reckoning), especially those who I thought I wouldn't see until next year.

Here's a few pics:
