Probably a stupid question, but does the discount code include the asterisks either side of the numbers.


Iain, Many Thanks for sorting this. I hope you are better soon.

Club pass booked OK for Saturday with my Silverstone account from last year, Club code works without the asterisks.
Programme is £15 extra and is offered (with other extras) after moving on from choosing the infield car pass and the two tickets.
Silverstone gives us 15 minutes to complete the whole transaction before logging us out.

Thanks for advising about the asterisks. Did you not use the link and book from your Silverstone login account.

I used the link, applied the O/C code, chose day and then needed to log in to my Silverstone account to speed up the financial transaction.
Otherwise lots of typing; do you want emails, name and address etc etc, and only fifteen minutes for a dithering oldie!

Thanks Iain,

All booked up and can’t wait - will just have to go without the turkey this Christmas :grinning:

Trust Silverstone to be a pain when it comes to tickets. I attend lots of events, especially with MSV and BARC. Tickets are dead easy - a couple of clicks ,paid for and print or keep on phone . But Silverstone now demands you must install its App . Done so ,after much cussing as the app seems to be from the age of steam . And date of birth- why ?

Doubtless it will be all right on the night, as long as you have a smart phone. Most do, but it isn’t compulsory . God knows Silverstone couldn’t even get the old system right -

Grand Prix last year ’ Can’t come in via this gate mate, you’re gate 8 ’ ('The ticket doesn’t specify any gate ’ ) ‘Oh try again then. It says gate 12 now sir’ . After a major strop thrown by me I was let in by the boss security guy , with his apologies .

Classic - 'no, that ticket isn’t registered on our system '. (‘Err yes , it sort of is ,and you’ve taken over a hundred quid for it . And emailed it to me’) ‘Ah , right. You’d best go and see security’. (After a long walk , I join a queue of others with the same problem as me ) 'Oh yes , that is just fine sir '(‘But why wasn’t it fine for the guy on the gate?) ’ Oh , one of those things sir’.

We will see …

My thoughts exactly.

I shall resist buying a phone smart enough to run an app for something I only do once a year.

They only want to bombard you with their stupid ads, like all the **** emails.

I bet that eventually it will be possible to download the pdf from one’s account as before.

I emailed Silverstone Enquiries yesterday very politely and simply about my lack of a suitable Smart phone (mine does calls and texts and not much else).
Today after a short exchange of emails to set up a phone call from Luke, he was very helpful and adjusted my booking so I could download and print the tickets as usual.
Now done.
Happy again.

Can i have details (like who to email)cuz i want to do the same thing please

I simply used their normal help channel
Submit a Request
selected the ‘Events’ box
and then filled in the uniquely numbered request form this generated.

I needed my booking number at one stage, but forget quite where it was in the process.

I expect we are not alone…


Possibly to ensure that you are over 18 (or whatever other date their insurance requires)? However, just because a web site or app asks for your date of birth, it doesn’t mean that you have to tell them what it is.

There are only a small number of organisations with whom I share my real date of birth - all the others get a made-up date. That also applies to any other personal information that I am asked for, and which I do not think the site asking has a legitimate reason for wanting to know.

I’m not precious about it - Messrs Bezos and Apple know my every thought already . It’s just a PITA providing irrelevant information when all one used to do was buy an eticket or chuck the bloke on the gate some cash

personally its about they took away my option to choose. Nobody likes being told what to do…
