Your car, our track
Drive your own car at Silverstone, the UK’s only F1 circuit. Experience the longest track in the country, and one of the most demanding.
Based at The Silverstone Wing – our state-of-the-art Pit and Paddock complex – you’ll enjoy world-class facilities, including F1 garages (you can even book your own), and the Media Café that overlooks the track.
The track stays open over lunch and there’s an open pit lane, so you have plenty of time out on the track. We even offer in-car training from top instructors.

Your Track Day
Sign-on for all drivers and passengers starts at 7:00am. When the paperwork is done, you get your car sticker and wristband, then grab a coffee and some breakfast before attending the drivers’ briefing at 8:20am. Our instructors let you know what happens throughout the day, track rules and etiquette, and any other information you need. Then it’s time to get ready for the track. If you’ve never been on a track before, you take a trip in our minibus for some sighting laps, with one of our instructors at the wheel. Once that’s complete, you can go out for some familiarisation laps behind a pace car. At 9:15am the circuit goes live.
Drivers must be at least 17 and have a full valid UK manual driving licence. Please bring it with you on the day.

What do I need to wear?
All drivers must wear helmets which comply with governing body technical /safety regulations. We ask that all arms and legs be covered therefore shorts and t-shirts are not permitted. We also advise that you wear sensible driving shoes or trainers. If you have your own helmet that complies with MSA/ACU regulations then you should bring it. If not, you can hire one of ours on the day for a small fee.
What do I need to bring with me?
It is essential that you bring, both parts of, your full driving licence with you, especially if your day is on a Sunday or bank holiday as we will be unable to verify it with the DVLA if you should forget it. If you do not have your licence, you will not be allowed on the track.
What time can I arrive at the venue?
Access to the venue and paddock will be allowed from 07:15hrs on the Track Day date. If you arrive prior to this time, please park in the car park indicated on arrival at the circuit.
I’ve never driven on a track before, can I get some help?
Novice drivers will be taken around the circuit in a mini bus for instructional laps with a Senior Silverstone Instructor. Additional in car tuition can be purchased in advance, or on the day should the driver wish to have more instruction.
What if I have an accident?
In the unlikely event that you have an accident whether small or large, there will be fully trained marshals and paramedics to help you as necessary. Similarly if somebody else has an accident marshals will alert you of any obstacles ahead. Please note that it is a condition of your participation in the Activity, that in the event of accident, loss or damage occurring during such Activity you will not pursue any claim for damages against any other participant (save in respect of injury or death).
Will I be insured?
It is unlikely that your normal road insurance covers you for track day driving, please check your insurance and make arrangements as necessary.
What if I'm slower/faster than other drivers?
This is not a problem, as track days are non-competitive with controlled overtaking. Faster vehicles have the opportunity to overtake slower vehicles on the straights.
What does Open Pit Lane mean?
An open pit lane day means the circuit remains open throughout the day. This allows drivers to go out on track as and when they please (provided the on track capacity has not been reached). There will also be no track closure for lunch.
Am I allowed a Passenger?
Yes, they must be over the age of 16 and sign an indemnity which will name the driver of the car they are a passenger in. Any passenger over 16 years but under 18 years will have to have their indemnity countersigned by their parent or guardian. All passengers must wear a helmet and sit in the front seat of the car only. This means that if you are having an instructor session you may not have a passenger. Instructors must be approved by ARDS and hold a minimum of a Grade B ARDS licence.
Can I bring additional drivers and spectators?
Yes. Additional drivers will need to be booked on at the time of your booking. Spectators are welcome to come along on the day. Instructors must be approved by ARDS and hold a minimum of a Grade B ARDS licence.
Can I bring my children?
Due to the hazardous environment i.e. ‘live paddock’ children under the age of 16 are not allowed on site unless accompanied by an adult. This adult must supervise the child at ALL times. There is no exception.
