[+]Where do I go for my CarKraft Session?
Porsche Experience Centre,
Follow signs for Silverstone Circuit, enter via the main gate, please don't go to Porsche Garage Silverstone which is in Towcester
[+]Where should I go when I get to Silverstone Circuit?
Head to the main gate, tell the security personnel that you are there for an event at the Porsche Experience Centre. Turn immediately right and follow the perimeter road until you see the Porsche Experience Centre on your right (approximately after 1 mile and before the bridge over the actual circuit).
[+]Why do I need a check code
One of the conditions of taking part in CarKraft is that you hold a full driving licence AND you are not disqualified from driving.
As of June 8th 2015, the paper counterpart of the UK driving licence ceased being a lawful document. All records of the licence and any points/disqualifications are now held centrally by DVLA.
[+]Will I get any kind of reminder prior to the date of the event?
Yes - you (the registered person making the booking) will receive an e-mail reminder a week before the date of the event.
