Silverstone is almost 2 hours from where I live but when they announced they were putting on Lapland, I knew I had to go.
Lapland was the opportunity to drive your own car (safely) round the iconic Silverstone circuit, at night with surprises in store and a drive in cinema to watch the snowman to end the experience. I did debate it as it would be almost a 4 hour round trip for something that would take no more than 2 hours. That's when I remembered the Silverstone experience! I have been wanting to go since it was first opened so now was the time, lets kill two birds with one stone and make a day of it!
The morning was spent driving up to Silverstone and timing it perfectly to eat McDonald's in the car and follow the last F1 qualifying session of the year. Then it was time to drive to Silverstone and into the experience! Masks had to be worn at all times and hand sanitiser was available, I felt very safe. Part of the experience was to walk a little bit of the track and we were advised that due to lapland that would be closed early, so first on the agenda was to go outside! It had been raining on and off all day and we were so lucky that when we went outside, it was chilly and a bit windy but the sun was shining down!
