It’s almost time for the 2019 British MotoGP! As we’re based in Silverstone, it only seemed right for us to let you in on some of our local knowledge. From the best places to watch the track action to our favourite local drinking spots, think of this as the Spyder’s Guide to the British MotoGP.
Getting to Silverstone Circuit
With MotoGP at Silverstone, traffic gets very busy. The main dual carriage way in, the A43, will be bumper to bumper with cars in both directions approaching Silverstone. And whilst bikes can filter, why not use one of the other many great routes to cut out as much monotony as possible.
The four detailed rides into Silverstone are on good roads and suitable for many different styles of bikes, enjoy…
Some Local Recommendations
The Super Sausage Cafe on the A5 was recently voted the best biker’s cafe in the UK and we would certainly second that. Specialties include the Full Monty breakfast, hand pressed steak burgers and of course the famous foot-long hot dog. Lots of bikes to see, plenty of parking and excellent food, what’s not to like!!
The White Horse is a great pub within easy walking distance of the circuit. With guest beers on tap, good pub food and a friendly atmosphere it’s an excellent place to visit if you’re leaving the track or camping in Silverstone. There is a large beer garden and a screen with MotoGP and F1 showing whenever available, you may even see some Spyders in there…
Towcester Mill Brewery is a small independent brewery, tap room and beer garden based in the nearby town of Towcester in the old listed mill building. The brewery offers regular beers as well as a variety of seasonal and one-off special ales that are available to drink in the Tap Room or purchase in the shop. Beer of the month over MotoGP is ‘Roman Road’ and the Tap Room is open for the whole MotoGP weekend (until 22.30 on Thursday, 23.00 on Friday and Saturday and until 20.00 on Sunday).
Or if you fancy a ride out in the quieter times why not hire a Motorcycle. Spyder Motorcycles are based at Silverstone Circuit so if you’d like to beat the traffic, park you car with us for free and hire a motorbike please get in touch.
