    They said in an earlier post "due to restrictions from the track there are NO PASSENGERS allowed" :(

    I think it is due to the restrictions that are set by Silverstone management. You couldn't have passenger last year either.

    Oh right fair enough

    Just thought it was weird as any skid days at silverstone (car park) passengers are allowed.

    I E-mailed BDC team just after I asked on here haha, I thought I might have get a response a bit quicker here though. I'll post on here what the BDC guy's say regarding media/spectator's when I get a reply to my E-mail.

    Generally if it's a BDC event you need PLI and an approved media pass, I don't know how that applies to licencing events, but it gives you an idea

    I got an E-mail from the BDC team earlier saying
    "Media types will be allowed with conditions.

    1. All media MUST have public liability insurance and proof must be provided.
    2. Must sign on a disclaimer.
    3. Media must be present at the media briefing to be held immediately after the drivers briefing at 0830
    4. Must provide their own high vis jacket.

    The event is not a spectator orientated event and viewing will not be at a premium with tight restrictions on viewing areas.

    Hope that answers your questions.

    Many thanks



    The BDC team."
    So I'm taking that as spectator's can go and watch as long as there isn't load's of people turning up wanting to watch.

    the area being used is not really spectator friendly, but as far as we know entry to the main cafe areas are allowed,
