This, Silverstone has very limited banked viewing spots and is a very flat circuit. So unless you’re camping on the fence line it’s not great to see what’s going on. Yes there are big screens, but you might as well go to the Bike Shed and watch the racing.
Fork out for a stand if you go. Plus if it rains you’ll have some cover.
Not ideal at the moment, but I’d travel to a race abroad. I’ve done the following:
Silverstone (the one that was cancelled due to washout) but also watched other races there from GA wouldn’t do it again.
Misano in GA, amazing to be with the crowd and at the hairpin its got a massive bank to view from, but you need to get early doors to claim a spot or make space.
Barcelona in the stands, means you don’t have to get there early, if you go to the toilet or get food you don’t have to struggle back to a spot or if you do want to wander around the GA you’ll always have a seat to go back to. Again the crowd abroad was a right laugh and a real buzz.
Both the euro ones we rode down there via twisty roads/mountain passes on a 2 week trip.
