Teams may access the Garages from 19:00 on Friday 16th August 2019. If you are Testing on the Friday then please follow the instructions issued by Silverstone for access times on the Thursday night (currently 19:00).
I have liaised with Melindi Scott (if you are booked on the Goldtrack Thursday track day) and Jo Ilkin at Silverstone Circuit (If you are testing on the Friday) so you will remain in the same garage for the race weekend.
Please park sensibly we have the bottom half of the National Garages and I have tried to spread the cars evenly however some of the teams will be sharing two to a garage. However they are very large garages and there should be plenty of room.
