Lost Boot Bag Silverstone

I've been very slow in thinking about invoking the power of Blatchat to try and trace my lost boot bag.  This goes all the way back to Monday 16th May, immediately after I had done the fish & Chip run weekend and I went to a trackday at Silverstone.

When I was packing up mid afternoon I unaccountably left my fully packed 'soft bits for sevens' boot bag on the ground next to the paddock fence opposite garage 20.  It wasn't till I arrived at my friend's house in Yorks 170 miles later that I realised I had left it behind.  Doh!

I have been through the lost property process with Silverstone (if you can call it that), but to no avail.  They don't have a phone number and their 'lost property' web page is not apparently looked at by anyone - maybe not what you expect from our centre of motorsport hosting hundreds of thousand of visitors a year.  With no response or contact point there was no point calling back on way back south to Jersey a few days later.

There were a few other Caterhams there, but mostly in garages and i doubt they would have seen it, but just thought I'd post here in case.  It contained nothing of value, mainly just a bunch of clothes, but crucially no ID.  Anybody hear anything?

Moral of the story isto get a white paint pen and write name and mobile number inside any such bags, hoods or cases

Yes indeed - can't disagree with that.  Lots of 'if only's' - if only I hadn't pushed the car down on the flat to check the oil before departure, noticed it at the first fuel stop, etc. etc.  I did at least visit Halfords and buy myself a jump pack (which was required later as otherwise I'd have missed my ferry) - thanks again for the use of yours in Chepstow.
