I have been to Silverstone a couple of times over the last 10 years, but I seem to miss the 'extra' bits of entertainment that completes the experience.


Has anyone had experience of getting to the track on the Thursday and being in the grand stand on the International Pit Straight?  I notice that Sky often has live coverage there - any idea what time that usually kicks off, whether it is included in the weekend general admission pass, and whether it is worth getting there for (or arriving Friday morning instead)?  I note that they had a draw for the pit walk, but typically I missed the deadline - doh!


Also, the Sunday evening entertainment - is that usually 'just' driver interviews, and is that worth seeing before shooting home?


Hope this makes sense  :drunk: Thanks in advance!

I've been going for last 10 years and we stay sunday night because there is a great atmosphere after race and usually the stage is very entertaining and you get to see another side to the drivers.
