Lap of Lights

Currently we are only allowing four wheeled sleighs into the LAP of LIGHTS experience. Unfortunately, any vehicles which do not comply will not be permitted.

In order to enjoy your LAP of LIGHTS experience and to see everything that Santa and the team have prepared for you, the speed limit on track will be a leisurely 5-10mph.

You will complete one lap of the Silverstone circuit. This year’s light show will transport you to some of the world’s most famous locations – strap yourself in for a round-the-world trip!

Don’t worry we have a team of Santa’s Helpers on call who’ll hook you up and deliver you safely off the circuit where you can arrange for third party recovery of your vehicle.

No. Unfortunately, Santa-Paws will not be attending LAP of LIGHTS and we therefore ask that you leave your four-legged friends at home. Entrance will not be permitted with any animals.

At Silverstone, safety is s’no’w joke. Be assured that we have a team of Santa’s Safety Helpers throughout the LAP of LIGHTS experience to ensure everyone’s safety. From speed monitoring to safety sleighs we don’t want to see anyone making it onto to Santa’s naughty list.

We recommend arriving no more than 30 minutes before your time slot. If you do arrive earlier, we may ask you to wait in a holding area until your arranged start time.

You will need to ensure that you have appropriate motor insurance cover in place, as you would for use of your motor vehicle on the road. Throughout the experience the normal rules of the road will apply, meaning that the driver must hold insurance and a full license appropriate to the vehicle they are driving. We recommend that you consult your vehicle insurer should you have any specific concerns.

We ask that all attendees stay within their vehicle whilst on the circuit for the LAP of LIGHTS experience. There will be plenty of time for you to stretch your legs in the Lodge and on the Ice Trak before or after your lap.

Santa and his reindeers have to travel at an average of 5,083,000 mph to reach everyone for Christmas morning. That means it would take him 0.0259 seconds to complete a lap of our circuit! Safe to say your drive will take a little longer!

We estimate that your LAP of LIGHTS Drive will take around 30 minutes to complete.

Please contact our elves on [email protected] who will be able to help you.

Yes, Santa’s Safety Car will direct you throughout the experience.

A trip to LAP of LIGHTS is suitable for all ages, from 0 to 100 plus!!

Bags are not permitted onto the Ice, so we advise you only bring essentials with you. We are not responsible for any bags and belongings being left around Silverstone Circuit.

We recommend you book your ICE TRAK ticket 90 minutes before or after your LAP of LIGHTS Drive session. This will leave you plenty of time to return your skates, enjoy our festive food offering and back to your vehicle.

Although most of the ICE TRAK will be positioned in the Garages and on the Pit Lane, we would recommend you dress appropriately for outdoor winter conditions.

Ice Skating is available to book online when you book LAP of LIGHTS. After you’ve chosen how many vehicles you are booking, you will then have the option to add ICE TRAK to your basket. If this option doesn’t show, then unfortunately it means we are fully booked for your selected date.
