You can park oversized vehicles in Car Park 22 - you will be directed there by parking stewards upon arrival.
Complimentary finisher t-shirts will not be available to reduce the environmental impact of Run Silverstone. A normal polyester t-shirt is equivalent to around 12 plastic bottles, with an estimated 300,000 garments going to landfill in the UK every year.
At the end of 2019 we donated ten huge bags of leftover t-shirts to the amazing guys at ReRun Clothing who sort and redistribute clothing, however going forward we want to do what we can to eradicate the amount of textile waste we produce.
For all those who love and use their souvenir racewear, limited edition Run Silverstone merchandise is available to order until entries close at midday on 7 October or until stocks last.

There will be charity donation bins just before the start line to discard your top layer if necessary, but please be aware that you will not be able to recover any discarded item after the event.
Please consider this when preparing for the event - we recommend Solution Green compostable bin liners as an environmentally friendly alternative to bin bags which are sometimes used as a top layer.
Noise-cancelling earphones/headphones are prohibited and whilst we discourage the use of other earphones/headphones at this event, participants choosing to use them should ensure they are set to a minimum volume such that instructions from marshals or other race officials can be clearly understood. We reserve the right to disqualify participants who cannot hear instructions as a result of their use.
