THE BRITISH GRAND PRIX
SILVERSTONE – THE HOME OF BRITISH MOTOR RACING
NEW DATES FOR 2006 – BRITISH GRAND PRIX MOVES TO 11 JUNE 2006
NEW START TIME TOO – 12.00 INSTEAD OF 13.00
2006 Formula 1 dates have several changes to avoid clashes with the football World Cup. See the full list of dates at the end of these pages. You can book our usual private suites packages again for 2006 (even though we have to rush off to Le Mans the day after – twentieth year, can’t miss it …)
We make no apologies for the wordiness of this section – our clients tell us our service and suites are special, so catch some of the ambience here. Skip down to WHAT WE OFFER if you want a quick list of what’s included and the prices. Also see our SPECIAL OFFER – F1 TEST DAY PLACES WHEN YOU BOOK FOR THE GRAND PRIX!
BRITISH GRAND PRIX 9-10-11 JUNE 2006
Goodbye traffic jams! If you remember the queues, well, try again now with the bypass and major access improvements at the circuit. BLISS. The tidal system of morning with all lanes in and evening with all lanes out makes a huge difference too. So forget expensive helicopters! Plus the first bookers receive our best car passes for an area just a walk from the suite. All our hospitality places include parking.
Join us for ‘Friends’ Friday’, informal and thoroughly enjoyable. Or Saturday watching practice and qualifying, with F1 cars coming past right by you as they hurtle in and out of the pitlane. There’s support races on Saturday, and for raceday you’ll enjoy our warm welcome and high standards of service with a full days’ programme on the track. We hope Sergio will fly in again for the day from his holiday home in Sardinia, and I promise to find John the Ferrari owner another racing teddy bear for his daughter!
YOUR OWN PRIVATE PADDOCK SUITE – ‘IT’S SO CLOSE’
Our guests love the club-like informality of the suite with the closeness and the exclusivity. You are feet away from the cars coming in the pitlane entry road. No need to rush through lunch. This year we will have lunch AFTER the race, as it starts at 12.00, plus a few snacks beforehand with drinks. Watch the starting laps outside on the terrace, stroll back in for a drink – without missing any circuit action, look at the big plasma screen in the suite. Circuit action is also on the (small) big screen opposite the terrace, the commentary is on your complimentary race radio. We can have a leisurely lunch and tea with support races to watch. Plus the most welcome bacon rolls when you first arrive … Very different feel to a marquee, and more attentive.
JUST A FEW OF YOU? NO WORRIES …
We still offer our very popular individual places for each day in one shared suite. Glenn W joined us for race weekend as a surprise birthday present and was an old friend in no time. Last year, Andy brought his son on Friday and came on Saturday as a present from his wife – with surprise birthday cake presentation and chorus of Happy Birthday To You from everyone on the terrace (including the suites upstairs). Just a nice atmosphere. It’s taken him a long time to comment – but now he’s booked again for 2006, thanks Andy … So you can send us your guests with no worries – what a thank you that would make for your best clients or suppliers…
BRINGING YOUR OWN GROUP?
Talk to us NOW for your own suite. You can use your own colours, your displays, your logos, your staff uniforms. The suites offer a great customisable alternative to the vast expensive Paddock Club (over £2,000 a head for raceday) and large facilities (many more people, plus a walk to and from the grandstand, meals at fixed times). This way you enjoy your complete control over the day and the setting. Price depending on what you want (you can choose) and of course subject to availability of suites. And for your own suite, you choose when you want lunch this year … before or after the race.
Here’s one we did earlier – our RED suite for 2005 – now, which team could that have been for? It’s even got a dishwasher, and it seats 30 people.
